P: Orange copper body big creamy offwhite head. Slightly hazy.
S: hopped up nose with fresh citrus and tropical fruit hops with wood and hints of earthy/floral hops. The glass has somewhat of an aroma and makes it hard to dissect. Crisp and fresh.
T/M: Super fresh grapefruit, juicy tropical fruits, pears, mangos, pineapple, hints of honey, fresh pine needles and pine resin. Malt is toasty and doughy hints of sour dough. Creamy delicious mouthfeel with prickly carbonation. Finish is smooth and dry with a pleasant explosion of hops from start to finish.
O: I was glad to see this on tap at a restraints while visiting South Carolina a for my relocation. First Stone beer and I can say it was freaking great. Everything I look for in an IPA. Fresh and hopped up. I look forward to living in this state. Cheers!

This is my favorite IPA and a goto beer for me.
Pour - excellent voluminous, frothy pour; leaving a gorgeous three finger, frothy, sea foam head.
Appearance - Very nice, clear amber. Lacing is outstanding.
Nose - The nose is not powerful, but does bring up a nice light grapefruit/pine/resin scent.
Taste - Yummy. Not thick and or over the top; but rather a perfect balance. Ruby Red grapefruit juice, pine resin, yummy sweet malt.
Finish - perfect. Bitter, long lasting, citrus sour.
This is truly a world class beer.
