citrus and pine resin hops. rich color. taste is citrus, bitter, but also malty and full. Really nice strong IPA sharkweek (120) - Statesboro, Georgia, USA - JUN 13, 2012
This beer is a delicious treat. It pours a cloudy golden with some white head. It smells very citrusy and floral. When you taste it you will be in IPA Ecstasy. The flavor is a very well balanced hop and malt note. I love this beer and wish I had bought more than one bomber. PINTandPUFF (4) - CHARLESTON, South Carolina, USA - OCT 12, 2011 does not count
With all the good IPAs out there this one is mentionable. Nice citrus hoppy blend with a dangerously drinkable body and nice head. Growler Chickencoop (188) - California, USA - FEB 17, 2011
Big amber pour, chunky fluffy head. Nice citrusy piney nose...taste was the same, but a nice sweeter maltiness that is sometimes missed in our beloved west coast ipa’s. This was way to drinkable, almost finished it without enjoying it. Overall, i have had a ton of the east coast ipa’s but this is up there with the best, and pretty close in my top 10 for all IPA’s.big thanks on this, need more. oobawa (1658) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 18, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2011 Drinking HopArt is akin to chewing on a fresh cascade hop. The hops concentrated into this single IPA are deliriously potent, with a smooth malt backing that keeps things from reaching Ruination-like levels of bitterness. HopArt is a dry, piney, gorgeous pint of beer, and it keeps us Charlestonians satisfied while we wait for the next batch of COAST’s nigh-perfect DIPA, Boy King.

Pours a cloudy golden orange/peach color with golden burnt orange hues when held to a light source and a two finger yellowish foam head. Very good retention, only slowly settling into a lasting cap that coats the glass with sheets of chunky soapy lacing.
Earthy floral hop aroma with lots of sweet citrus notes. Plenty of dank oily hops with hints of grapefruit, mango and lemon peel. Subtle earthy pine character and light malts.
Chewy resinous full body with lots of earthy dry hops and sweet citrus flavor. This beer is amazingly fresh with lots of luscious dank oily hops as well as both dry pine and sweet citrus notes. Lots of mango, grapefruit and lemon peel character with a ton of dry bitterness and dry earthy pine needle. Slight alcohol presence toward the end of the swallow that lingers into the dry finish. Nice biscuit/graham cracker malt backbone provides some balance but doesn’t detract from the glorious hop flavor at all. I loved this beer and wished that I had better access to it. Highly recommended! tillmac62 (756) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - DEC 9, 2013
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. zizzybalubba (1880) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 14, 2014
22 oz. bottle from Greenville Beer Exchange, Greenville, SC. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of pine, wet grass, and grapefruit rind. Nice assertive hop taste of...pine, wet grass, and grapefruit rind. Long lasting bitterness. Very little balance (and that’s ok with me). This really walks a thin line between IPA and DIPA and is an outstanding beer. Wizard55 (1) - Indiana, USA - AUG 6, 2014 does not count
22 oz bottle. Amber/Rust color with minimal head. Relatively mild bitterness and fairly well balanced. Big fan. rajendra82 (1101) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Andy Warhol inspired label on the can, but instead of Marilyn Monroe faces, it’s a bunch of hop cones. The beer pours out cloudy, amber, and forms a craggy head. The smell is quite an intense mix of juicy fruits like grapefruit, passion fruit, pineapple, and melon. The taste is also more of the dank, resinous hops, which are tropical in character, but have a little lower bitterness. There is a hit of big spice and earthy herbs in the finish.Body is quite dense, and the alcohol is not attempted to be hidden much. I picked up a four pack of this during a visit to Charleston. I hope they expand distribution to Atlanta area soon, because my first impression of this offering is quite good.
