Named for Black Mountain's highest summit, GreyBeard is an innovative IPA extracting its bitterness from massive doses of whole leaf hops utilizing a unique hop-back system to infuse extra lupulin resins into the body and aroma. Bold and adventurous, GreyBeard takes you to the top of the mountain.

This is not a bad beer and I'd get again. If the rating is low it's only because it's not a pretty looking beer and, try as I might, couldn't get a good smell from it. Recommended by Good Bottle on Remount in Charlotte. It has a decent malt hop taste to it, a little more malty, but mixed well and smooth in the mouth. Maybe a little thin in flavor, but a good, standard IPA. If they could add a touch more hops and make it into a double, it could be something special. Appreciate the local brewery and will try more. (517 characters)

Look: Don't know, drank it from the can.

Smell: It has a light aroma.

Taste: Not too hoppy or bitter, this is a fairly mild IPA. It is more on the fruity side of the IPAs I've had. Easy drinking for a 6.9%. (208 characters)
