Pours a clear copper color with a rocky white head. It has a nice fruity hop aroma that is typical of IPA’s and APA’s. Medium bodied with good malty chewiness up front and finishes with a slight hop twang. A very nice American style pale ale.

hey, sure it didn’t open to anything amazing nor did it seem to be made from the choicest ingredients but it was ballsy and offered more of an IPA experience than a lot of what I’ve had recently. Fairly dry, non-estery, bulbous and unified bitter of EKGish ilk, slightly dusty but not oxidized. I say RIGHT ON.

Lighter than I like in an APA, but still flavorful and well-balanced. An impressive beer from a ’non-progressive’ beer region. Has some juicy hop flavors that seem to complement its semi-sweet malt presence; I only wish there were more of both. Nevertheless, it’s very easy to drink and I found it to be one of the better (bottled) offerings from South Carolina.

A very good beer from the Carolinas. Pretty cool label also.

Nice malt but not enough balance, a bitter aftertaste lingers for awhile afterwards.
