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.

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.

Underdogs88 (324) - New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2016
Low citrus character with notes of passion fruit. Appearance is a hazy yellow gold with an average head. Flavor has notes of grass, orange, bread. Bitterness medium, but harsh. Mouthfeel is medium light with medium carbonation. Overall, the hop character is grassy and harsh. Not a pleasant IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Zeswaft (1639) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 16, 2016
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. It’s an IPA version of mac and jacks amber.

Can served bar side at "Slightly North of Broad" while visiting Charleston. Lots of mixed hop flavors blended to create a more complex IPA.

Draft.. Aroma of green tea and citrus. Flavors of melon and honey, big sweetness, with a bit of granola as the thin malt backbone. Pretty darn tremendous.

From the Can poured into Spiegelau IPA Glass. Hazy orange color with huge white head. Nose is herbal citric, taste is intense bitter hops and Kind of spicy herbal notes. Finish is long lasting herbal bitternes. I tend to like it but the bitternes is Kind out of balance...
