Served from a bottle to a pint glass at King Street Grill Charleston, SC
A- Nice golden haze with good carbonation and just the right amount of cloudiness...virtually no head whatsoever though, but this may be due to it being served to cold
S- probably the highest point of the beer. Absolutely loaded with hop spice that immediately fills the nostrils. Follows with that nice citrusy scents. This is what and IPA should smell like.
T- Follows through on the nose. Delicious hops fill the palate, but do tend to fade off towards the aftertaste leaving something to be desired. That being said that specific note does make this brew more drinkable over a long period of time than some other as it does not inherently blast your palate.
F-Nice, decent amount of texture nothing to really write home about
O- This is an IPA that is easily accessible throughout the states and more often than not should be your choice when opposed to the selection

Poured from a bottle with a hazy golden yellow color and a decently foamy white head. Has a very nice hoppy floral aroma. Taste is kind of sweet up front, dominated by floral notes with touches of citrus. The finish is a surprising amount of bitterness that lingers a while. The beer has a nice full body feel with some carbonation. This is very refreshing and enjoyable.

Light amber to brown in color. A minuscule bit of white head partially covers the top of the beer. A bit hazy with Brussels lacing. Incredibly enticing aroma of pine like hops reminiscent of pineapple greets me. The mouth is a little sticky and the bitterness prickles my tongue. When I take a sip I get a short but sharp burst of pine like hops and then some light malt to back it up. I get a nice gentle bitter fade.
