From a bottle into a pint
A: Orange yellow with a tiny head. Dissipates almost instantly. OK lacing.
S: Lemon, straw, not really any detectable hops.
T: Some mild malt, a little bit of straw... not much.
M: Kinda bland and watered down, lots of carbonation.
O: Not great, just kinda a bland craft beer.

Good carbonation but then again I had it a a place 2 miles from the brewery. Odd taste and not very hoppy. As far as an ipa I NEED more. Medium body. It's ok but I would pick another ipa if more were available. The lacing is better than others but not amazing. I want more hops from a beer that calls itself the high roller. I hear that others from them are better but I have yet to taste one that I can back... And I live in the city it is brewed in.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

A: Moderate white head and a slightly hazy amber copper color

S: Aroma is bitter and of mostly caramel with some citrus.

T: This does have the signature garlic flavor that some hops have as noted by another reviewer here. I forget the blend, but Simcoe comes to mind when it mixes with another hop? The garlic is light while the caramel is pronounced and bitter.

M: Medium body with a stinging carbonation.

O: Overall, not particularly impressed. Its just not the way I like my IPAs right now at this point in my life. Lots of caramel and a not so fragrant hop profile. There is some citrus, but it is muted and overcome way too easily by the malt profiles in this beer.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass

A: Very little head even when poured aggressively, just a few bubbles, hazy golden orange color

S: Interesting, smells like hops but has that slight cooked onion/garlic aroma that some hops can add

T: One dimensional hop flavor, I made a beer that had a similar off flavor although this is much less intense, short bite without much flavor, decent backbone of malt is appreciated but not really detected in flavor, off flavor isn't obvious but just strikes me a certain way

M: Medium dry, medium carb, light body makes it easy to drink

O: Meh, maybe I'm sensitive to that type of hop, but I wasn't crazy about the flavor and the other categories couldn't bring it up

Served at the Old Edwards Inn in Highlands, N.C.

Amber color with white head that lingers pretty well.

Smell is very muted. Some citrus but mostly just bready malt.

Taste is mostly malt. Some musty citrus like grapefruit. Moderate bitterness.

Mouthfeel is light bodied with good carbonation.

Overall this was average. Wouldn't seek out again.

Bottle. No bottled on date marked.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy orangish-coper. One finger white head with some decent retention and some spotty lacing here and there.

Aroma: Earthy mild floral hops. Reminds me of an English style rather than American. toasty grainy malt.

Taste: Taste backs up the aroma. Definitely feels more like an English IPA. Plenty of dry biscuity malt.

Mouthfeel: Medium body and carbonation. Lingering grainy and maltiness. Not much as far as bitterness in the finish.

Overall, wasn't entirely impressed with this. it was okay.
