Picked up a growler at the brewery during our weekend in Asheville. Wedge is always one of our favorite haunts in Asheville

A - A cloudy reddish orange, with lots of head and lace retention. Beautiful. This is what an IPA should look like!

S - Spicy and hoppy. Bitter piny hops present

T - Big hoppy flavor with a huge sweet malty backbone. Piny hops dominate. A touch of citrus as well. Bitter, but not too much. Very well balanced. Love it

M - Medium bodied, and goes down the hatchett just right

O - An amazing IPA, no doubt. I wish they would bottle it so I can bring alot of it back to Atlanta. If you are in Asheville, got to check out Wedge. Always a good time!

3.39/5  rDev -14.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Consumed on December 30th, 2013 at the brewery. Menu notes 6.9% ABV.

Appearance: slightly cloudy medium orange/yellow. Fine white head.

Citrusy, resiny aroma.

Flavor is surprisingly sweet: malty with orange notes. The big hop flavor promised by the nose is muted.

Some carbonation tingle. Mouthfeel is slightly thin.

Not especially memorable.

Serving type: on-tap
