This is not your every day IPA. Exploding with tropical flavors of ripe mango and passion fruit, and aromas of citrus and apricot, this brew is a great alternative to a world full of ordinary IPA’s. Who says we can’t brew great IPA’s in the south!

theisti (3590) - Kansas, USA - JUL 14, 2015
Shaker pint draft at one of the outdoor bars in the Harbour Town area of Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. The pour is copper with a well formed ½ inch off white head. Head is quite lasting, with nice lace. The aroma is citrus, tropical fruits, some pine and fresh cracker malt presence. The taste is a nice balance between the citrus and pine hop notes and the mild sweetness of the malt. Nice resin character in the finish. The palate is medium to light bodied, active carbonation and a clean mineral resin dry finish. Well made, quite tasty.

A good IPA for just about any time of year. Strong citrus and fruity after taste. No complaints about this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

In draft pours medium brown amber, hazy, small cream hued head that reduced to a cap, leaves a thick lacing coat. Some pine and hop resin in the nose. Taste is balanced, some toast. Resin comes during the finish. Dryness lingers long after the sip. Medium body, feels thin at times.
