On tap at barley's Taproom in Greenville, SC...
Orange in hue, relatively clear. A gigantic, pillowy head with a sticky lacing. Great aromas from the hops varietals used. Sort of soft on the palate, but a bit thick and viscous, almost syrupy in spots. Flavor was good, but not awe-inspiring. I was hoping it would have been a bit more snappy.
I don't know. Not terrible, but not stellar. A good offering but I am a bit nonplussed by it.
Serving type: on-tap

4.11/5 rDev +1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance is a bright, transparent rust orange and pours a fluffy off-white+pink head.
Smells of citrus, floral, and slightly spicy.
Tastes slightly of pineapple, caramel, and spicy hops.
Mouthfeel is a well balance between malt and hop, slightly spicy up front with a bitter, then sweet finish.
Overall, a good IPA but nothing spectacular.

4.01/5 rDev -1.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Clear copper. Big, cream head.
Smell: Floral, citrus, alcohol, and perhaps pineapple.
Taste: Floral and citrus.
This is great. It certainly does have a fresh taste...I think. There is a good bit of alcohol
in both the smell and taste; much more than what the ABV hints. Also, I think I'm getting some malt as well as citrus rinds from the taste. Total package, this is a great brew. I would definitely get it again. For whatever reason, I'm having trouble describing it.
