Filled up a growler with this beer.

Golden amber color with bright white head and lacing that fades quickly.

Not a whole lot in the nose of this beer, some piney citrus and a touch of tropical fruit.

You get the hops right away but not as much as you would think. It's balanced by a decent amount of malt and has a lingering dry and bitter taste.

It's a decent enough IPA, and a convenient purchase for me since the brewpub is within walking distance. I would drink this again but I wouldn't go out of my way to find this beer.
Appalachian has a few decent brews but I find most of them are lacking just a little bit in what I want from each style. And this is a good example.

Serving type: growler
