2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Typical golden orange color with a small white head. Aroma hints at bitter hops but seems a little grainy. The flavor is aspirin bitterness with a touch of pine and a cheap graininess.

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
