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.
