4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle from Greenville Beer Exchange, Greenville, SC. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of pine, wet grass, and grapefruit rind. Nice assertive hop taste of...pine, wet grass, and grapefruit rind. Long lasting bitterness. Very little balance (and that’s ok with me). This really walks a thin line between IPA and DIPA and is an outstanding beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy burnt orange with a big soapy white head. Spicey notes on the nose, light piney hops, ripe fruits like orange and mango, and a nice bready malt character. Really bright tropical fruit bitterness on the taste, sweet biscuity malt, resinous pine, and just a hint of spice. Really well rounded, love the citrusy and piney hops.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled on 11/15/13. Pours a medium amber against a golden hue. Average head and lacing. Nice nose of balanced pine and citrus hops. Almost medium body with good carbonation. The taste is artfully balanced of hops against a light malt background. As the nose, the flavor profile is pine hop followed by grapefruit citrus. A nice bitterness, but this brew focuses on hop flavor. Clean finish with a lingering grapefruit flavor and slight bitterness. Hats Off to my brewing brethren on the SC coast and the guys at Greenville Beer Exchange that recommend this. This is an art of using hops and is better than SN Celebration in a side by side.
