Appearance: clear, golden appearance
Aroma: mild floral hops
Mouthfeel: medium, slightly sticky
Flavor: somewhat citrusy hop bitterness initially and a dry bitterness at the end with a sweet caramel malt flavor in between

Overall: Nicely balanced and not over the top. Very enjoyable.

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. Base of bottle says Filled 02/18/14.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before dropping to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring around the edge.

S- Hard to get a good whiff even with the Spiegelau glass. Mild hops and some faint bready malt. Slight alcohol fume and there's some strange chemical-like aroma I can't put my finger on. Kind of off-putting.

T- Taste is a bit better with some solid bitterness and more bready malt. Looking for some hop flavors but I really just taste bitter. Some honeyish sweetness going on.

M- Sharp and bitey. Medium carbonation with a lightish body.

O- Not sure what they were going for with this but it missed the mark for me. I did like it a bit better when I had it on tap but was still underwhelmed. For a better English-style IPA also brewed in Asheville, try Green Man IPA.
