2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft. Frosty, lemon copper color. Frothy, 1 1/2" head with slow dissipation. Hoppy, butter, light hint of grain, bread. Watery delivery that slides off the tongue, like the flavor is running away. Boo.

Had the India Pale Ale, not sure this is the same one. Thick white head, with hazy dark copper color. Nice looking! Creamy palate, mild grapefruit aroma, dry hoppy finish. Nice!

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught sample at the Mount Pleasant, SC location. Clear pale amber with no head to speak of....apricot syrup and a touch of leafy greens and dry herbs in the inoffensive, light nose....faint herbal dry hoppiness, syrupy fruits (apricots and mandarin orange) on the tongue, syrupy-sticky mouthfeel with low carbonation, too sweet but a touch of C-hops show up late to help prevent this from becoming a disaster.
