COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A base of pale, Munich, and Carapils malts is just enough to contain the massive hop flavor and aroma packed into this highly drinkable IPA. A blend of four American hop varieties is added four times in the kettle and twice in the fermenter for a complex and layered hop experience. Best served at 45-50˚F in a tulip or English style pint glass.

South Carolina needs some good breweries to pop up and Westbrook is making a name for themselves with this one. Citrusy, grapefruit and the hops blow your skirt up. Maybe SC has struck gold with this IPA, and basically has become my favorite SC brewery over RJ and Thomas Creek in a short time. Cheers!

Massive hop profile is a good way to describe this beer. Piney flavor, decent bittering, not too bad an aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Foxbush (1320) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 31, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2014 12 oz can This was given to me by a friend of SC beers. The IPA poured a hazy golden color with small white head and modest lacing. The aroma was a piney hop mixture. The flavor is nicely bitter with a good citric pine note. The carbonation was average for this medium body ale. The aftertaste was nicely bitter with some pine nuts..

Draft at Sweet Grass Dairy. Slightly hazy golden pour with a small bubbly white head. Mostly grassy, floral and citrus dominated aroma with a touch of sweet pale malt backing. Flavor is grainy maltiness and grassy hops with some grapefruit and orange. Medium bodied and a lingering bitter finish.

JLLSU (238) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - JAN 11, 2013
12 oz. can from Ale Yeah! Roswell----> Goose Island stemmed glass. Pours a light orange with a small loose white head. Smells of heavy grapefruit and a small bit of caramel. Tastes of muted citrus with a good deal of bitter on the back end. Kind of thin on the tongue with little carbonation. Average at best IPA.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Can from hopcity: Golden-orange color with a frothy white head. Bright, citric hop aroma with lots of grapefruit pith and pine notes. Low carbonation. Flavor is fairly mild. Lightly toasted malts, pine-like hop bitterness. Finishes fairly dry. Middle of the road IPA. Not sure how fresh it is and they may play a part in its overall impression.
