Finally got to try this beer yesterday at the brewpub.Poured into a standard pint glass a deep orange infused golden with a great looking sticky white head.Citrus fruits all over the place in the nose with some underlying pine,a noticable caramel malt base is there but the citric hops dominate.A deep blast of citrus hops hits ya up front and they linger thru the duration,a little alcohol infused sweetness and caramel is there but again the hops steal the show.This is a great beer,it lived up to the hype.

Bottle share at Proof. Pale straw in color, white head that faded to medium collar. Aroma is a light malt bill, some grassy hops. Taste is bitter, grassy, some floral hops. Odd taste. Not very enjoyable. Light to medium body and low to med carbonation.

Somewhat hazy light golden hued with a quarter inch thick head of white frothy foam. Brussels lacing. Gentle pine like hop aroma. There's definitely a prevalent pine like hop flavor. This is a great everyday IPA. Mouth is sticky and the bitterness prickles the tongue. Front of the palate is a gentle pine hop burn followed by a nice light malt backbone and a gentle hop burn on the fade.

On tap in Asheville.
Slightly hazy body is covered by a durable head.

Appealing aroma. Hop dominant aroma with faint malt base.

Plenty of herbal/weedy/grassy hop flavor. Long lasting hoppy aftertaste.
Mild to moderate bitterness.

O: excellent IPA: recommended.

Had on tap at Foothills. Piney hops take a backseat to floral citrusy orange and grapefruit flavors. That being said this is not a one-dimensional hops only beer. Could (and did) enjoy several of these in a single session.

Overall great IPA. Had this on the same day as SC and was more impressed with Jade.

Tangerine orange in color, clean & clear, with a bright white head. Head is large and foamy. Nice bits of stringy and spotty lace shift around.

This beer is different every time I have it. Sometimes it's darker and greener in its hoppiness and other times it hits more as tropical and fruity. This bottle seems to be leaning in the direction of fruity-tropical. Bright citrus, melon, lifesavers pineapple flavor, and passionfruity. Happy and refreshing hop aromas over clean caramel and crackery/grainy malt. Flavors are lightly sweet and briskly bitter, melon, citrus, other miscellaneous fruit, dusting of pine, hint of citrus rind and bitter grapefruit. All around enjoyable. The dark side of this is coming out more as it warms. Seemingly simple with a pleasant mix of flavors.
