4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours cloudy orange/amber w/ 1" creamy off-white head. Cirus fruit, pine and grass aromas mingle with a malty sweetness. Rounded mouthfeel and med body, almost syrup. Despite hoppiness it finished sweeter than expected. Caramel malt, banana balances well w/ pine/grapefruit bitterness - alcohol is well hidden. Excellent IPA.

Nicely bitter and astringent - with a good strong "bite" - Balanced with a juicy, citrus, resin taste (and aroma). Just a gorgeous IPA. (Draft, at The Local Pub, in Athens.)

Outstanding aroma with some fresh fruit, caramel, and pine. There is a nice deal of grassy hops in the flavor, which remains pleasant throughout. My first encounter with this South Carolina brewery, and there is nothing to complain about here.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Green colored 12oz can pours with a deep gold body and a bit of haze supporting an off white head of foam. The aroma offers up slippery sweet citrus with some resiny grass notes. The taste is similar with a pleasing thick resiny bitter citrus notes backed up by some malt sweetness. It gets a little earthy with black tea leaves into the finish which only enhances the experience. Darn tasty IPA.
