3.1/5 rDev -21.5%
Tastes a bit like a moldy wooden bucket...too many flavors going on here and none of them are particularly good. Calling this an IPA is also stretching it quite a bit.
Appearance: Deep golden amber, almost orange, cloudy
Smell: Very faint citrus
Taste: Grilled orange, smokey, earthy, weird unidentifiable funk
Mouthfeel: Smooth enough
Drinkability: Sippable if you prefer the strange and the experimental. This seems to be a trend from the Asheville Breweries.

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.

On-tap at the brewery in a shaker pint. Turbid orange brown, no head, ring of sparse lace. Smell: caramel, whiff of grapefruit, mildly spicy, very fruity. Taste: caramel, earthy, grapefruit, mild tropical fruit. Balanced. Drying leafy, sweet finish. Not really an English IPA, but a good NC style IPA.

On tap at the brewery yesterday.
The beer pours a solid amber color with OK head retention and decent lacing. Don't get a lot on the nose, just some light earth and malt. Not very impressed by what I smell, but fortunately this beer tastes better then it smells. The beer has a nice balance of moderate sweetness from the malt, that counters the decent bitterness well in this IPA. It's still ultimately on the hoppy side, and the flavors are attractive with some nice citrus and pine. Unfortunately, along with the bitterness, I got some noticeable alcohol in the finish as well, leading to a fairly hot finish. As I drank this IPA after the incredibly boozy 3rd rail, I took my time with this beer, and had a glass of water. While that helped, undeniably, this beer has some noticeable heat on the finish that detracts a bit from its drinkability. Mouthfeel was medium bodied, but with the beer delivering plenty of flavor.
A nice enough IPA, and God knows it was plenty popular the day I visited, but the noticeable alcoholic heat in the finish would probably have me looking for a different IPA most of the time.
