In my opinion a very unique IPA. A very pungent citrusy smell mixed in with grapefruit aromas. On the first sip you taste the hops right away tingling the tip of your tongue and giving way to that very nice tongue puckering citrus mixing in with the grapefruit tongue puckering bitterness all really well. Somewhere in between all that you get the cake like malt.

At first in comparison to a lot of the similar tasting high rated IPA's I had my thoughts about this beer but then I opened up to it a lot more since I have a 12 pack from the brewery and can really say its like Ashville's Dogfish Head 60 minute IPA. Easily rivaling that beer in my opinion. I was able to acquire this beer from family that vacationed there. Hopefully some more beer from Asheville including this brewery comes to NJ soon..

A: A light gold with a chill haze to it. Thin white head.

S: A big citrus hop aroma with some toasted malt and a slight herbal hop aroma in the background.

T: The toasted malt really provides a nice base for the beer. The citrus fruit flavors and citrus hop blend really well together. A little citrus peel bitterness in the finish.

M: Light and drinkable with less than average carbonation levels. Slight bitterness in the finish.

O: This is a very drinkable and refreshing IPA. Tailored more to the citrus side but with a nice toasted malt to add depth.
