Tasted 31 January 2015.

Pours a clear orange with shades of gold. One finger of fluffy white head, good retention and lacing. Very nice.

Smell is bright and fruity. Citrus, pineapple, papaya. Some seriously tropical hops in there, with an underlying sweetness to fill things out. Very nice.

Taste is good, not great. It's got some of those fruity elements, which are excellent, but it feels sorta empty otherwise, and it fades to a slightly chalky bitterness.

Feel is fine. Pretty much as expected. Medium-bodied, medium-high carbonation. Lastingly bitter.

A pretty solid IPA. I love the fruits in the smell, but I wish there was more in the taste.

Pours a clear pale amber colour with a nice foamy white head.

The smell is big on the tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, oranges.

The taste is very fruity much like the smell, there's orange, mango, grapefruit. There is a medium level of bitterness for the style.

The mouthfeel is pretty light with medium carbonation.

A very tasty ipa from Asheville Brewing Company. I already regularly buy their shiva ipa but I think this is even better. Hopefully they make this easier to get than it is now.

hard for ipa to be real distinct anymore, so much of it has already been done a million times, that i am just happy to have good ipa anymore. so when a beer like this comes along and is not only good, but different, i get really stoked. turns out the carolina scene is burgeoning, and these guys are near the front of the pack. a blonde sunny looking ipa with almost no bitterness in nose or taste, just a huge bouquet of resinous fruity hops, sticky and intense, but somehow light and clean finishing, more fruit than bite, and more character than bitterness. the malt bill is light enough for hops to resonate, but big enough to balance them out, add a bready front end, and make the beer flush and full on the palate, despite being quite a sessionable beer for me. i like the tropical warm weather feel to this, the uniqueness of the hop profile, and how active the carbonation is. not filling at all, a beer i would buy regularly if it were available here in colorado. maybe it will be before long, everyone around me who tasted this agreed that it was wonderful, maybe demand will make it happen...

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a slightly hazed, caramel-copper coloring, with a filmy, sparse, white head. Nose of tropical fruit, caramel, peppery hops, and grapefruit highlights. Flavors of grapefruit forward, with a caramel backbone, lemon-lime highlights, pepper spice, and piney hops. Smooth and mid-bodied, with a resinous bitter aftertaste. The finish is slick and slightly dry. Very tasty beer!
