On-tap at Green Man Brewing, Asheville, NC

A: The beer is clear amber in color and has a moderate to high amount of carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that has excellent retention properties and hardly died down.
S: Light to moderate aromas of herbal hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of grassy and herbal hops along with a light to moderate amount of bitterness. No malts are detectable.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The herbal and grassy flavors of this IPA make it a refreshing change of pace compared to the other traditional hops used in other beers in the style.

A - Pours amber/ruby with nearly a finger of off-white/caramel head, retention is a little lacking, fantastic (thin) lacing however.

S - Lots of sweet caramel, super slight crisp hop bitterness, pretty mild.

T - Much more bitter than I would have thought (somewhat bitter, relative to smell its bitter), grassy and somewhat citrusy, great balance of caramel sweetness. Fantastically balanced

M - Lighter bodied yet still very smooth, medium/low carbonation - super enjoyable to drink.

O - Very well balanced, smooth, fantastically drinkable. Nothing to crazy but just extremely well balanced in every way, great beer.
