Draft. Caramel aroma. Way too candy sweet beer for a single IPA. Unbalanced with no hop profile and without any malt.

Ron and I split this bottle from Jay that was brought from South Carolina. Dry clean, not too hoppy, good finishing beer.

Draft while waiting for my food at One Hot Mama’s in Hilton Head. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor had a general pale malt base, lightly toasted, some resiny hops, mild citrus and floral notes, watery and pretty bland overall.

12 oz bottle. Poured with a huge, foamy head that rose up and over the edges of the glass even with a partial pour. This head looked like it belonged on a milkshake. Very appealing, sweet aroma seems a touch malty for an APA, but tasting reveals a hop-dominated, mild-moderate bitter flavor with alingering aftertaste from the hops. Very smooth and soft feel, with a medium body and medium+ carbonation.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Unibroue snifter. (from notes). A: The beer is a deep amber color. Poured quite clear although a small amount of sediment remained at the bottom of the bottle. Has a short white head that soon fades to a ring, leaving little lacing on the glass. S: The aroma is complex and malty for style. Features caramel malts and some pale hops and light hops with hints of vanilla, honey, and citrus. T: The taste has a crisp and spicy/herbal hop component along with a sweet malt base. Overall, mildly bitter by the finish. More malt in the finish and aftertaste than expected. Complex flavor components integrate nicely. M: Crisp; medium body; medium carbonation; semi-dry finish. O: A complex and flavorful APA. More malty than average due to the load or assortment of malts; not to any lack of hops. Recommended.

One of their better beers. This is light colored and a lighter beer. Nothing amazing in general but a decent taste.

An okay IPA. Citrus dominates in body and aroma. Hints of pine are apparent, particularly in the nose. Stale finish.
