4/5 rDev +1.3%
On draft at the brewery.
Poured a hazy orange hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.
The smell featured a citrusy hop atop a flight caramel malt.
The taste consisted of citrus and pine with a solid light caramel backbone.
The mouthfeel was typical of the style.
Overall a very tasty and well balanced IPA.

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!

Thanks to jtd1969 for bringing me a growler back from his travels.
A - dark hazy orange with a thick, pure white, foamy head that has great retention
S - faint bread, faint cake batter, grapefruit, very faint spicyness
T - opens with some sweet malt and then is completely dominated by big, piney, resinous, incredibly bitter hops; there is also some faint citrus throughout; the bitterness from the hops lingers on the palate for what seems like forever
M - medium bodied, well carbonated, a very warm alcohol finish
This is a nice IPA. It's intensely hoppy with the Cascade hops really making their presence known. The piney, bitter hop character reminded me briefly of SN Celebration. The malt is sweet which I like and does its best to lend balance. I really enjoyed this, and I think any hop head that finds themselves in Asheville needs to stop into Wedge and try this one.

Bought a Growler of this from The Wedge Brewing Co in Asheville, NC for $15 (Growler included). Tapped from one of the Bright Handles w/ "WEDGE" on it into the Growler with Neon Blue Writing on it. Shared w/ CurtisMcArthur and other BA friends from Nashville, TN.
Aroma- A surprisingly strong malty and sweet aroma hits the nose before the hops... Hops are in the background here but not dominant.
Appearance- Pours a 2 finger head that has nice head life. Has a dark orange colored body with semi-haziness. Leaves good lacing behind.
Flavor- Has tons of hop and sweetness from the beginning of the drink. Whew, not at all like the Malt dominant aroma! Stays hoppy throughout the drink and finishes with a medium bitterness level.
Mouthfeel- Medium Bodied, Medium-High Carbonation, Smooth, and finishes with a nice citric flavor.
Overall Impression- A great American IPA minus the aroma. For some reason, the sweetness of the malt came out strong but not in the flavor. Would DEFINITELY recommend this one and if your @ the Wedge, I would suggest drinking others on-tap and then taking this one to go in a Growler (its the only option in Growler anyways). Thanks again for the great brews Wedge Brewing!
