Bottle from 5 points. Bottled on 11/26 so it’s fresh. Everything that a sculpin or duet is not. Hoppy bitterness predominates. This is a good beer, but not my favorite choice of hops.

ksurkin (1022) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - NOV 28, 2009
22oz bomber from whole foods in greenville. pours a very cloudy, light orange-gold with a long lasting, thick, bubbly, light khaki head and nice lacing. aroma is very nice with sweet, juicy citrus hop notes of grapefruit and tangerine with hints of pineapple, candy sugar, grass, and toasted malts. flavor is very tasty as well with bright, assertive citrus notes of grapefruit, orange, and lemon peel up front with mild, sugary floral notes and light, bready, crystal malts on the back end. palate is medium bodied and nicely carbonated with a dry, citrus hop finish. overall, a very easy drinking, solid IPA.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 10, 2009
On tap at the BSP Hop Harvest Fest. Pours a cloudy golden amber with a thick creamy white head that shows great retention and lacing. The aroma has a nice juicy sweet hop character with lots of pineapple and orange peel. Maybe some toasted bready malts as well, and the hops are very sweet with some sugary notes. The citrus hops are more aggressive in the taste with some astringent bitterness up front from the hops. The middle is a battle between the hops, the bready malts and a solid sugary sweetness. The finish is slightly dry but with plenty of fruity sweetness lingering on the palate as well. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and overall this is an extremely drinkable IPA. Solid stuff.

Draft at Mellow Mushroom Charleston during our recent trip with Vince & Elise. Quality IPA. Easy drinking and solid all around. Vince brought home a growler of this from CBX, I have the altbier which I’m going to drink tomorrow.

thill25 (231) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2009
Draft from Mellow Mushroom in Charleston...Poured amber, but was poured to reduce head...the residual head looked off-white. Great aroma of grapefruit and pine. Grapefruit, citrus, caramel dominated the flavor. Medium bodied and very well balance...Very easy drinker for 7.7%...

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JUN 9, 2009
Growler from Charleston Beer Exchange. Clear copper/amber with a big off white head. Very floral and piney hop aroma, hints of honey and toffee. Medium body, mildly resinous, lightly carbonated. NOt overly bitter, but nicely dry and well balnced flavors of caramel, toffee, and the piney hops. This is a very nice IPA.

Coltrane (108) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 26, 2009
Nice IPA with strong earthiness/grassiness. Its hard to taste the 7.7 percent alcohol and it is very easy to drink. Can be inconsistent on tap, but that might be an age/bar thing. An absolutely must for any visitors to Charleston.

aracauna (2997) - Georgia, USA - FEB 14, 2009
Pours a cloudy medium amber. The aroma is fresh American hops. A solid maltiness backs up a less bitter than expected hop flavor. Good and satisfying, but not a hop bomb. Enjoyable and drinks quickly.

Oakes (11842) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 9, 2009
Hazy beige with a thin head. Very pleasing woody dry hop nose. Slightly herbal bitterness, some notable yeast character and a hint of breadcrusty malt. Interesting balance but a tasty beer.
