3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden brown on tap with thin white head that leaves good lace. Aroma is big on the piney west coast hops, earthy and floral. Taste follows, medium bitterness, just barely a hint of pale malt. Solid, but nothing special.

Pint can. Pours lightly foggy orange-amber with a big spongy head. Nose of caramel, toasted grain, soapy citrus zest and evergreen resin. Tasty front of earthy-leafy hop, toffee and dry cocoa. Finish turns to a mushy mess of sodden wood, cocoa, minty resin, booze and citrus zest. Near-medium body has a medium-high carbonation that’s nearly too fizzy.

Pounder can from trio. Pours clear golden with a plus size head that has outstanding retention. The aroma has big bright tropical fruit, grapefruit, very citrus forward and light on the malts. The Taste has some spicy, herbal character, big citrusy juicy flavors, low to medium bitterness. Very hop forward and very well done.

Copper, with a huge head. Smells really clean and grassy, with a nice hoppy aroma. Taste is a bit of toasty malt at first, then piney hops. Nothing too fancy here, but well made and tasty.

Pours a clear coppery yellow, heavy lacing. Pine and citrus aromas. Heavy dose of hoppy bitterness all the way through; some resin and pine, hints of lemon and grapefruit. Sure to please hopheads in the Greenville area.

On tap at Thirsty Monk Biltmore Park. Sort of disappointing. Was expecting more based on deScription and hop overload that went into this one. Pours dark golden, somewhat hazy. All the IPA flavors I would expect are there- citrus, pine and tropical notes but balance is off. Too much earthiness (not the good kind) and vegetal notes. Maybe weird notes from different malts? Somewhat muddled. Appropriately bitter finish. So close to being really, really good but not quite there. Underachiever.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the Quest, Greenville, SC.
Hazy brown dark golden colour with a tiny white head.
The aroma is a bit strange with vegetables, hoppy bitterness, mild yeast and malt. The flavour is yeast, dark resiny hoppy bitterness and malt. A bit messy and unbalanced.

Hazy gold, white lacing. Wet earth on the nose and strong earthy hop flavors on a full-bodied palate. Spot on for a west coast IPA.

Hazy gold pour with off white head and lace. Aroma is dominated by citrus hops and some caramel malt undertones. Sweet caramel malt with a touch of fruity esters and a good citrus bitter. Medium bodied with good carbonation.

Draft. Pours amber with decent white creamy head. Aroma is pine/spruce, bread dough, lemon, tangerine. Taste is light/med body with some lingering hop bitterness. Malt variety adds a nice complexity. Overall, decent.
