Pours a very hazy gold with plenty of fluffy head. Aroma is rather muted with some herbal notes and maybe a hint of citrus and what I would best describe as bread. Taste is orange citrus and bitter with some caramel malt eviddent. Medium bodied and very easy to drink.

Citrus aroma in a hazy golden pour. Restrained hop forward balance with sweet fruit body. Finish is surprisingly absent and letís the brew down in the end.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 3/17/2016. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 2-3 finger dense and fluffy off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, melon, lemon/orange peel, pine, honey, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of juicy citrus/pine hops, moderate bready malt, and fruity yeast notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, melon, lemon/orange peel, pine, honey, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, melon, lemon/orange rind, pine, honey, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/pine hops, moderate bready malt, and fruity yeast flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, that increases through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/pine hops, moderate bready malt, and fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
My time in Charleston is coming to an end, and while there are few things I will miss, this is one of them. One of the few 6 packs i can justify at $11. Pours cloudy copper. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, buttery biscuits. Flavor is supper smooth orange and citrus with healthy candy and bready sweetness. This beer will always be a go-to if available. Cant overstate its drinkability. Itís an IPA version of mac and jacks amber.
