4.02/5  rDev +8.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours an orangish amber color…a really nice hue, fairly transparent, I see tons of bubble action in the middle…mother of pearl head is a thick stack of tiny bubbles forming about a pinky finger in width…a really nice looking brew…(4.5/5)

Smell: Yum! A nice aroma here…it’s got a very woodsy, earthy and slightly musky tone but there’s a noticeable fruit cocktail sweetness that keeps it from going over the edge for me…yeast is also prevalent…while I can’t say that it’s too diverse, what it has is nice…(3.75/5)

Taste: Hmmm…very much like the nose, earthy, woodsy with a touch of musky yeast…there’s a rye, malty bite after the initial taste that takes over the flavor and lends to the earthy bitterness/earthy malt that follow…there’s a peachy fruit sweetness in the background that rounds out the taste…it really does finish much like it starts, with a earthy bitterness that coats the tongue…(4/5)

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with medium carbonation…it fluffs up bringing earthy hoppy bitterness to the palate…a hoppy creaminess lingers into the after taste…a hoppy bitterness sticks on the tongue, leaving a very nice flavor…yum! (4/5)

Overall: I’m very impressed with this brew…I’ve had it before at their restaurant, but not out of the bottle and it’s translated well in mass production…beers typically of this IPA style I find too pungent with earthy/musky bitterness, but there’s something about this one that is different…the drinkability is fantastic, this will definitely become one of my staple brews in the fridge…Green Man sells growlers and that is what I’d recommend buying…a fantastic brew that will bring a happy buzz while throwing 18 at Richmond Hills…thank goodness for summer! (4.25/5)

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.
