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!

1/19/16. Can. Pours hazy orange w a nice two finger head that sticks around for a little while. Light pine and fruit nose. Bitter doesn't hit right off but it warms up over time. Not an aggressive west coaster but a nice middle ground.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ Westbrook. Hazed burnt orange colored beer with some soapy white foam. It’s got that sort of typical old school/midwestern IPA character to it with a lot of bread, caramel, and high bitterness. Some decent enough citrus character (grapefruit) to make it palatable, but too much sweetness and bitterness for my tastes.

It tasted very fruity and sweet, grapefruit but not sour. The white foamy head is medium large, the body is dark orange. A light bitter taste, a little bit fruity. The body is light, dry and creamy with a flat carbonation.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Slightly hazy orange color with off-white head. Aroma is balanced with a nice underlying malt sweetness and some juicy hops. Taste starts hoppy and slightly sweet with caramel malt and ripe fruit notes. Finish and aftertaste are quite bitter with lots of grapefruit and resiny hops. Body is medium and has good carbonation. A more classic approach of the IPA style but very well executed.

Orangey smell and taste. Medium body and medium bitter finish. Pretty strong malt presence in the taste. Definitely not hop forward but above average ipa.

Light yellow with a big beaming white head this lightish herbally ipa. Not big on the palate but light and delicate. Good as a training beer but a tad underwelming for this old vet.
