3.5/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured hazy amber color and smelled like yeast quite a bit. I think the beer was a little too young. I know a lot of people like IPAs very young to preserve the hop flavor but I thought this one could stand a few more weeks. Other than that, the bitterness was quit nice, and a carmel-like malt flavor was there in enough quantity to offset the bitterness. It was ok but I'd probably order something else next time.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served on-tap at LAB (Lexington Ave Brewery) in Asheville, NC

A: Pours a relatively clear golden amber in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation near the surface of the beer and some golden yellow + apricot highlights. The beer has a half finger tall off-white head that slowly reduces to a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of citrus/orange and citrus/grapefruit hops over a lighter aroma of caramel malts.

T: Upfront there is a light flavor of caramel malts without much associated sweetness which is followed by light to moderate flavors of citrus/orange and citrus/grapefruit hops. Light amounts of bitterness which fade pretty quickly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp.

O: An easy to drink and enjoyable simple IPA - not too aggressive in the flavors of the hops or the bitterness. Pretty well balanced.

On-tap at Lexington Avenue Brewery, Asheville, NC

A: The beer is clear yellowish amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that has good retention properties and hardly died down, also leaving lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste is citrusy with flavors of oranges and grapefruit and also has a light to moderate amount of carbonation.
M: IT feels medium-bodied and relatively crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a nice basic IPA and has nothing over the top in therms of hop flavors or too much bitterness.

First had: on tap at LAB, Asheville

Clearish amber pour with a small cap of white head that receded to a ringlet and left a bit of lacing on the glass. Light citrus hops in the aroma, distant biscuity malts. Citrus hops were the dominant factor in the taste, but still fairly muted, sweet caramel malt base with a touch of honey. Light-medium body, okay mouthfeel. Drinkable, but nothing great going on here.
