3.58/5  rDev -11.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Hazy, golden-orange color with one finger of head that fades slowly with thick lacing.

Aroma: Caramel malt, floral hops, some grassy earthyness, a little pine

Taste: Just a flash of creamy malt sweetness, then a rush of strong, piney bitterness. Some sweetness reappears on the the back end, but that trails off in the lingering, bitter finish. There is a definite green hop, slightly harsh quality to the finish which boarders on unpleasant.

The Rest: A decent IPA lacking in the balance department. Not enough else going on to balance out the massive hop bill. Drinkablity suffers a bit from the harsh finish as well.

3.89/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

16 oz. pint poured on tap at the brewery; unknown brewing/bottling date; drank over 30 minutes

A: 2/3 - yellow-orange coloration; initial frothy white head settles into a subtle glass lacing; medium alcohol legs

S: 9/12 - some moderate citrus and pine aroma; distinct malt character - toasty, bready, doughy; some mild alcohol notes as well

T: 15/20 - moderate bitterness up front that opens up for a balanced hop and malt battle - some grapefruit, pine and resiny characters - with some malt character and alcohols; the malt character continues to develop in the middle of the mouth; finishes generally dry and inviting

M: 4/5 - light-to-moderate body, moderate carbonation, some alcohol presence but not fullness

O: 8/10 - don't think that this is a 90+ beer but it's a solid IPA for those who like balance in their IPAs; for $5/pint at the brewery, the price point is right too

TOTAL - 38/50

Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, hazy, copper-gold coloring with a bright, white halo of bubbly head. Nose of pine pitch, caramel backbone, and subtle grapefruit notes. Flavors are toasted forward, with resinous hops, dank, and a blast of tropical fruit. The aftertaste is more bitter and resinous, with hints of tropical fruit. Light bodied and smooth, with a bitter, tropical fruit linger on a smooth finish. Good brew.

Bottled on 11/15/13. Pours a medium amber against a golden hue. Average head and lacing. Nice nose of balanced pine and citrus hops. Almost medium body with good carbonation. The taste is artfully balanced of hops against a light malt background. As the nose, the flavor profile is pine hop followed by grapefruit citrus. A nice bitterness, but this brew focuses on hop flavor. Clean finish with a lingering grapefruit flavor and slight bitterness. Hats Off to my brewing brethren on the SC coast and the guys at Greenville Beer Exchange that recommend this. This is an art of using hops and is better than SN Celebration in a side by side.
