Bottle to glass. Pours a hazy amber orange color with a light tan head. Aroma is a light citrusy fleshy fruit hops, apricot. Flavor is much more potent with a moderate citrusy bitterness and some light malt sweetness. Very assertive. Light to medium in body with a lingering bittersweet. Delicious.

2014 RBWG Grand Tasting. tdmuel (251) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Medium gold with white head. Light pine resin aroma.
The flavor is moderately bitter with a dry finish.
Pours a hazy burnt orange with a big soapy white head. Spicey notes on the nose, light piney hops, ripe fruits like orange and mango, and a nice bready malt character. Really bright tropical fruit bitterness on the taste, sweet biscuity malt, resinous pine, and just a hint of spice. Really well rounded, love the citrusy and piney hops. jbruner (5401) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Bottle shared at RBWG grand tasting! Pours a hazy golden orange with white head. Aroma of resinous new world hops with a slight pale make back. Taste follows, OK, but an odd balance. Medium carbonation, mild bitterness. BeerandBlues2 (13871) - Escondido, California, USA - FEB 8, 2014

Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness, light malt, fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Bottled on 11/15/13. Pours a medium amber against a golden hue. Average head and lacing. Nice nose of balanced pine and citrus hops. Almost medium body with good carbonation. The taste is artfully balanced of hops against a light malt background. As the nose, the flavor profile is pine hop followed by grapefruit citrus. A nice bitterness, but this brew focuses on hop flavor. Clean finish with a lingering grapefruit flavor and slight bitterness. Hats Off to my brewing brethren on the SC coast and the guys at Greenville Beer Exchange that recommend this. This is an art of using hops and is better than SN Celebration in a side by side.

16oz pour at The Lodge, HHI, SC. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a large head that fades to ample lacing. Aroma is fairly mild with some malt sweetness, fresh grain, bit of fruit and a trace of spice. Taste is a nice blend of some caramel sweetness, fruit and fresh grain. Has a nice easy bitterness and a dry finish. Fairly medium body, nice crispness and smooth. Very well crafted.
