Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Clear copper pour. Finger of white foam quickly fades, and deposits some nice sheets of lacing.

Nice, hoppy aroma. Big citric hops and sweet malts. Also some resin. Very enticing nose.

Lightly sweet up front, then empty bitterness. It doesn't taste like the hops actually contribute any flavor; just bitterness. Reminds me of Sweetwater 420 in that the nose promises this great citric hop character, but it just never really materializes in the flavor.

Medium bodied, appropriate carbonation. Simple drinker. Not great, but a solid, crisp IPA.

This is served from a grolwer from Charleston Beer Exchange in Charleston, SC. Pours from the grolwer into a pint glass a clear copper color with a small white head. The head quickly recedes into a film and leaves a very thin veil of lacing.

Aroma is hoppy yet strangely musty. Smells like someones under arm or pit sweat. Not exactly redemming but oddly enough, not a complete turnoff. Citrus and grapefruit hops with minimal malt presence in the nose.

More of that armpit juice flavor but a sweetness follows. Quite bitter but well balanced, even without much of a malt flavor or feel.

This one is in the hoppy realm. It is bitterly hoppy without being over the top or out of whack. Nicely carbonated but finishes stark dry. Slighlty thin on the mouthfeel but I think the dryness is to blame for that. Not a bad beer. I actaully like it pretty well because I dig slightly-out-of-balance-towards-the-hops type beers.
