A friend picked up a growler while over in A-ville and shared with me yesterday.Poured into a standard pint glass a clear copper with a tight 1/2 finger slight off white head,English IPA aromas more leafy with a hefty dose of biscuit malt.Slightly grainy mouthfeel,English character on the palate as well a hefty lightly sweet biscuit malt flavor dominates up front than it melds into a leafy somewhat herbal/minty hop finish.If your a big fan of the more subtle English variety IPA youll like this alot,for me it was ok.

On tap at 12 Bones barbeque joint in Asheville. The brew arrives as a mildly hazed copper amber with a small offwhite head. Nice sticky lacing is left on the glass. Aroma opens with pink grapefruit, quickly seguing into herbal and grassy hops with a hint of toasty caramel. Smooth and well balanced, with a medium body. Taste has a floral, grassy, and herbal hops bitterness that is balanced very well by a subdued toasty and caramel biscuity maltiness. Supremely well balanced even though the hops run the show. Wow! This one is a pleasant surprise. Very enjoyable, and ideal with the blueberry chipotle sauced rack of ribs.

Picked up a growler at Bruisin' Ales. I was planning on saving this until a few more people could help me finish but a precariously placed growler and a big dog put an end to that, I'm just glad the whole growler didn't shatter.

Pours a very nice and slightly hazy copper color with a half-finger off-white head. The head dissipates into a scaly layer of bubbles on top leaving decent lacing.

Smell of sweet caramel malts with hints of earthy, bitter hops.

Tastes similar to how it smells. The malt flavor is a bit more biscuit-like than the smell led me to believe, but the same earthy hops are there, ending with a solid bitterness.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a good thickness with a good amount of a carbonation.

Drinkability is good. I had a few glasses last night, and will probably finish the growler without much problem tonight.

Overall this is a solid English IPA, though it's nothing special. Very drinkable, and worth a shot if you're in the area.

Thanks to Doyle for pouring me a glass from his growler that he picked up in our oh so outlandish trip to Wine 101.

Pours a dark amber with half inch of foamy head. Good retention. I'm a little surprised by the nose; nutty, woody, earthy, not a lot of hops. Taste is a nutty, earthy maltiness up front followed by a moderate piny hop character and just a hint of yeast in the finish. Mouthfeel is crisp and smooth; goes down easily.

Not an awful beer. Definitely not what I was expecting. Malt character caught me off guard and the hop character was a little mild for my preference.
