Year of New Beer: Death Defying, Hi-Wire Brewing (Asheville)

Written By: Dion on 04/04/2018

Pretty standard IPA here, with nothing really exceptional standing out. Tangerine and grapefruit on the nose with a late arriving herbal note, as well as a touch of toasted grain. On the tongue, the hop bitterness comes in on the high end of medium, presenting pithy with a bit of spiciness. Little bit of toasted bread crust along the middle with a hop bite that lingers well into the finish. Probably would've been better a little fresher, but not a bad brew for the markdown price of $5 for a 6 pack.
