Had on-tap at Appalachian Vintner Asheville. Served in a Sierra Nevada pint.

A- Pours a light amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains very well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam. Frothy resilient lacing slides slowly down the glass.

S- Super fresh smelling vegetal hops with just enough cereal grain sweetness to deliver that awesome IPA smell that reminds me of hops in the boil when home brewing. Marvelous.

T- Taste offers much of the same with a clean but powerful shot of earthy hop bitterness. Delectably drinkable with the bitterness at a near-perfect level: not too heavy but still assertive. Great hop burps.

M- A bit sharp and oily with medium carbonation and a lightish body.

O- A damn fine IPA. Now I see what all the hoopla's about. Will be sure to try more offerings from these guys when possible.

Canned 08/18/2014. Thanks to @bsyoung!

Poured into a Unibroue tulip glass.

A: Pours a deep orange body with slight chill haze, forming thick, off-white head that eventually recedes to a light cap. Leaves plenty of legs and a bit of splotchy lacing.

S: Huge hop aroma right from the opening of the can, including notes of pineapple, resin, fresh leafy hops, and a bit of dankness. Each sniff demands another, longer one.

T: Leafy bitterness, tropical fruit (pineapple), light malt sweetness, giving way to a lingering hop bitterness. Great, cohesive complexity.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, with a little alcohol warming.

O: HDNR is completely deserving of its GABF gold medal. Best IPA in the southeast region, and a go-to when I can get it.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: Dark orange color. Hazy with really noticeable sediment

S: Pungent mango and candied fruit, light caramel sweetness with a hint of pine.

T: Fruity, mostly mango with some resinous pine notes. Moderate bitterness, through the longish finish. Mild sweetness but works.

O: Really love the candy like aroma and flavor with the pine undertones.

Thanks to n2185 for the can. Tasted 10 January 2014.

Pours a mostly clear orangey amber. The top of the can is near 100% clear, but the bottom has a hefty amount of sediment. One finger of off-white head, okay retention, decent lacing.

Smell is a fantastic burst of citrusy hops, with tropical fruits, sweet malts, and a soft bitterness lurking in the background. Fantastic.

Taste is half really nice clean citrusy IPA, half kapow of chalky bitter. It's the astringent bitterness that really gets me, like someone's dropping some kind of drying powder on my tongue. I know some people like that element, but I don't. It's a tribute to the other side of the beer that I still rate it this highly.

Feel is medium-bodied, a touch sticky, and there's that powerful drying aspect again. But it keeps feeling dryer and dryer.

A really solid IPA, with excellent citrus and tropical fruit character. Wish I knew what causes the chalky bitter flavor, as it's one thing that brings a lot of IPAs down for me.
