COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
While respectfully following the guidelines of this traditional British ale, we added a truly American twist. Using 100% U.S. grown hops throughout the brew, a complex variety of imported and domestic malts, and a truly unique British yeast, the result is a well balanced India Pale Ale. One that exemplifies the classic style, yet brings with it the flavors and aromas of our American hop innovations without forgetting the barley.

Pours a clear amber, with a thin white head. Aromas of the usual grass and pine notes but not very potent. Flavor is that of a rather tame IPA. Itís a Charleston brew though so I canít say too much bad about it, but itís just a run of the mill IPA.

nothing special about this one. Bitterness not used to itís advantage more of an afterthought. No bright flavors like I would want from an IPA. Just an average IPA IMO.

zizzybalubba (1420) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - MAY 21, 2013
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Greenville, SC. Golden orange pour with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma of light floral hops, caramel, and toffee. From the aroma I was expecting a malt-forward IPA but rather this is just muted floral and grassy hops given very little in the way of bitterness. Light citrus on the finish. Meh.

chinchill (1880) - South Carolina, USA - APR 4, 2011
Bottle label indicates this one is from Greenville SC, not Charleston. Perhaps contract brewed by Thomas Creek? Pours a clear copper gold with one finger head of nearly white head. Citrusy and piney hops dominate the nose, with some sweet malt also evident. The flavor largely follows the aroma, with a bit more sweet malt balance than a typical Amer. IPA. Medium body and moderately carbonated.

Braincage1 (147) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - NOV 1, 2009
Bottle. Copper orange beer with a large pillowy head. Fairly strong aroma of grapes and a herbal spiciness. The initial sweet grain flavor leads to a piney bitterness. Feel like it has a lot in common with a Sierra Nevada IPA with some minor positives and negatives.

TURDFERGUSON (3954) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 12, 2009
Bottle. Orange with a small white head. Nose is earthy, hay, citrus. Flavor is pretty weak and I donít want to drink anymore. Easily forgettable.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 31, 2009
Bottle courtesy of durhambeer. Pours a hazy copper with a thin white head. Smells of pine, citrus, some sage. Tastes earthy and spicy with some caramel and a peppery finish.

emacgee (4026) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUL 13, 2009
Pours a translucent copper gold with a one finger offwhite head. The nose is mildly citrusy, corn/malty sweetness, earthy. The flavor is mildly citrusy with a present citrus rind bitterness, some sweetness, corn, earthy. The palate is mildly carbonated.

fiver29 (1035) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2009
Bottle pours clear yellow color with white head. Aroma is pine. Just straight pine. Medium light mouthfeel with the right amount of carbonation. Flavor is more pine and finishes dry. This is a pretty good brew.
