On tap at Mellow Mushroom. Amber pour, small bubbly head. Aroma is rife with resinous and leafy hops, along with citrus notes. Flavor brings more evergreen and orange rind, along with an increased earthy presence. Sticky, slightly syrupy mouthfeel, and having finished the pint before my food came I definitely felt that 7.7%. Pretty good stuff.

Orange pour. Spicy hop aroma. Flavor is spicy and citrusy hops. not overly prickly on the tongue.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2011 Drinking HopArt is akin to chewing on a fresh cascade hop. The hops concentrated into this single IPA are deliriously potent, with a smooth malt backing that keeps things from reaching Ruination-like levels of bitterness. HopArt is a dry, piney, gorgeous pint of beer, and it keeps us Charlestonians satisfied while we wait for the next batch of COAST’s nigh-perfect DIPA, Boy King.

Big amber pour, chunky fluffy head. Nice citrusy piney nose...taste was the same, but a nice sweeter maltiness that is sometimes missed in our beloved west coast ipa’s. This was way to drinkable, almost finished it without enjoying it. Overall, i have had a ton of the east coast ipa’s but this is up there with the best, and pretty close in my top 10 for all IPA’s.big thanks on this, need more.

Perfect color for an IPA- really solid beer. Not quite excellent- really good, almost too simple. A solid IPA. Can’t decide what it is missing to make it excellent. Would definitely have again- available in growlers at Mt. Pleasant Whole Foods for 12$

22 oz bottle fr Charleston Beer Exchange. Huge hop aroma with notes of dishsoap. Very cloudy in the glass with noticeable chunks (bottle 2 weeks old). Body a little thin. Reminded me of a weaker version of Stone Ruination with aggressive, not floral, hops (nugget & simcoe). Lots of grapefruit but not much of the malt as promised on the label. Plenty hoppy but struck me as a one note beer. Certainly not bad but I was hoping for more.

Pours a cloudy yellow-amber color with a thin white head. The aroma is really nice with citrus and pine notes.The hops are not as prominent in the taste as I expected but it is still really nice.

Bomber at the 5th Annual Epic Beer Tasting in Richmond, VA, November 28, 2010. Pours a pale amber color with a thin head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus and resiny hops with some earthy notes. The taste is earthy, citrus and leafy hops with some toffee. Medium bodied.

Aroma:Sweet, malty, grapefruit, apricot. Smells really good. Appearance:Slighty hazy, gold in color. Great white head. Taste:Sweet malt flavor, mild hoppiness. Hops are citrus, apricot. Aftertaste has a lingering bitterness Palate:Medium body, low carbonation. A little creamy. No astringency. Overall:This one is an easily sessionable IPA. It doesn’t have hugely unique flavors, but it’s quite pleasant.
