This tasted like a DIPA. Very good offering from an unknown brewery to me. Hope this is a taste of good things to come. I love beer trading and extras!

On tap at A Taste of Carolina at CLT. Clear medium amber with a two finger off white head that fades slowly and leaves some patchy lace. Nose has lots of pine and citrus. Light sweet malt with a medium+ bitterness. Mouth is medium slick with average carbonation. Decent.

Tallboy can from Craft and Draft in Columbia; first from this brewery for me. Pours a clear gold color with a nice, foamy white head and lacing. Aroma is sweet, fresh, green hops with a little spice plus caramel malt. Nice flavor with some dank earthiness and almost a melon trait too. Pretty interesting and tasty.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 7/18/2016. Pours slightly hazy orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, light caramel/nuttiness, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, light caramel/nuttiness, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, lemon/orange rind, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and minimal lingering hop astringency after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, and fairly creamy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Minimal warming alcohol for 7.2%. Overall this is an excellent IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink, despite the aggressive bitterness. A very enjoyable offering.

16 oz can poured into an IPA glass. Hazy light orange color with a medium off-white head that mostly dissipates. Aroma of citrus, pine, bread. Taste is pretty well balanced with tropical fruit and hop bitterness working in tandem with biscuity malt. A bit thinner in body than I was expecting. Finish is bitter and lingers. A very tasty IPA and one of the better ones I’ve tried from NC.
