Had on tap at Barley's Taproom, Asheville

A- pours clear and golden in color, creamy white head with lacing all down the side of the glass

S- citrusy and grassy hops, mint leaves, slightly danky-yet-fresh

T- citrus hop with some grapefruit notes, mint, clean and dry on the finish, just a bit of toasted malt on the finish

M- light-med body, med carb, foamy mouthfeel , crisp and dry finish

O- this pale ale reminds me of snpa, citsidy-hop-forward for a pale, very good overall

look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: Clear filtered golden with a copper tinge, 2 fingers of off white head that fade leaving a nice lacing that sticks to the glass. Little carbonation.

S: Spicy, piney, floral, medicinal, astringent, tropical fruits, sweet candy caramel, pineapple, passionfruit.

T: Milder on the tongue than nose initially, with a subdued phenol character, followed by the tropical fruits, spicy red pepper heat, floral, caramel characters. All are unpronounced in comparision to the smell. It ends in a piney spicy numbing heat that is not overwhelming but lingers. Herbs like oregano oil.

M: Resinous, a little oily, medium low to low carbonation.

O: Found it in Chiangmai, loving it for its scent, taste and American flavour. Rare find in these parts, takes me back to travels in the US. Would pair well with spicy food but is great by itself.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bought as a mixed six single to try.
Poured into a tulip glass from the 12 oz. bottle.

a: A nearly transparent medium amber. Flat. I am taking that into account in the rest of this review. Apparently not properly capped.

s: Fragrant pine.

t: Nicely hopped, like a medium strength IPA but darker color. Very enjoyable despite the lack of carbonation of this particular example.

m: Smooth, light to medium heft.

o: I'll have to get more of this to try fully carbonated, because it was so good. Another winner from Luganitas.
