First had: on tap at their brewpub
Clear, copper color, bubbly carbonation, topped off with a finger or so of foamy white head; nice retention and lacing. Hops in the nose, leafy, citrusy, bready malt backbone. The flavor reflected the aroma--this was standard stuff--nice balance of sweet bready malts and mildly bittering hops. Medium body, fairly dry. Nothing new and amazing, but solid and drinkable overall.

A: Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a massive head that fades quickly.
S: Sweet caramel malts mixed with a spicy hop twang.
T: Malty sweetness up front along with a bite of piney hop bitterness, nicely balanced. Aftertaste fades to a slight honey flavor.
O: Solid brew here. The only thing I didn't like was that the beer was a bit over carbonated, it came spewing out of the bottle when it was opened.

Appearance- Pours a clear, amber with a dismal head and medium lacing.
Smell - Warm, bready malts and little hops here. Slightly watered down.
Taste - Pretty smooth drink. Flavor is almost nothing. Reminds me of a Yuengling. Not impressed.
Mouthfeel - Really smooth stuff. It's a little creamy after a bit. Carbonation is mild, so that makes this beer really drinkable.
Overall - This beer is okay. I would give it another go. It Has mild flavor and isn't crazy.

A - It pours a drab copper-yellow hue, fairly translucent, with an initially huge head that collapses, leaving ridiculous lace.
S - The aroma is fairly muted; what is there is basically a lemony-citric hop and a small amount of minerality.
T - The taste can be summarized as hop and metal, mild on both accounts. Though I would say this offers something like tinny lemongrass flavors, it is strangely not horrible.
M - The feel is light enough, but not particularly special.
D - I would not seek this out, but it is a decent, inoffensive brew.

No IPAs on tap, but the server said this would satisfy my hops urge.
Served in a pint glass the beer was a hazy orange color. It had a medium-sized white head and lots of lace.
Sweet malt aroma. Citrus and floral hops.
Hops up front, mostly grapefruit but a little bit of piney hops there too. Biscuity background.

Thought this was a brewpub and I guess I was right. This beer was contracted to South Carolina. Poured golden with a nice head and the head lasts a while. Light hop character with a dry apple finish. It is crisp beer that goes down nice.
And that's all I got.
