Poured from 22oz bottle purchased at the brewery into New Belgium snifter picked up earlier in the day. Bottled 3/8/12 - that's fresh!
Pours a golden orange, slight haze; nice head and great lacing.
Smell is of piney hops, slight citrus, but not overpowering.
Taste is of bitter piney hops with a slight sweet citrus aftertaste. Very bitter and piney...it is very similar to a west coast IPA eventhough it was brewed within literal feet of the east coast. Its very sticky, and chewey, but has a lot of character. Really nice brew and by far my favorite from COAST.

Review from notes. Thanks to Jay for opening.

A: Pours a nice orange/copper color with a one finger off-white head. Decent lacing down the sides.

S: Some citrus aromas, mostly grapefruit and pineapple, with a good bit of caramel and bready malt.

T: Kind if a disappointment actually, not as hoppy as I was hoping. Not bad at all, just a bit on the malty side. Lots of caramel, graham cracker, and some bready malt. There was a little bit of citrus mixed in.

M: Medium bodied, slightly grainy, moderate carbonation with a slightly dry/sticky finish.

O: Had higher hopes having already sampled Boy King. Not sure on the age of the bottle, so would love to try it again based off other reviews.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

Got this beer from thagr81us in a trade! Thanks man!

Poured from bomber bottled 1-13-11 into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

A - The beer pours a hazy orange-amber color with a nice 1 1/2 finger nice white creamy head which slowly fades to a thin foamy film with great lacing.

S - Somewhat disappointed in the aroma of the beer. I didn't detect a whole lot aside from a mild piney hop aroma with a slight citrus note but not much.

T/M - The beer starts immediate bready/earthy hop flavor upfront with some mild caramel flavors hidden in the middle. Medium bitterness with good carbonation and medium mothfeel.

D - Solid.

Overall, I had never heard of this beer so it was awesome to try a local beer from South Carolina. It was a pleasure and this is a good IPA. It wasn't my favorite as it had a slightly unique malty character in the flavor but it was good and I would recommend it to try!

3.8/5  rDev -5.7%

A: enjoyed on tap at the brewery. Single finger head and nice lace. Cloudy golden with crimson hues. Nice head retention.

S: mild wet sock hop aroma. Some malt. Wood and vanilla but otherwise overall not a very strong aroma.

T: nice complexity to the hop character. Initially the pine is mild but it progresses to a sharply bitter finish. Caramel malt initially.

M: moderate carbonation and medium body.

Overall: nice hop character but lacking in the aroma category. The bitterness builds throughout the experience Which is enjoyable.
