This is my go-to year-round IPA. Always fresh from Greenville Beer Exchange and they just started dating the bottoms of the cans.
Pours Hazy gold with a foamy white head. Decent Lacing
Smell is slightly floral and spicy- hints of tangerine citrus and pine.
Taste is a collaboration of peppery, piney, citrus and light malts. Very hop forward and easy on the palate. It beautifully melds a bunch of American C-hop flavor characteristics without palate-wrecking bitterness.
Medium-high carbonation- lighter mouthfeel.
VERY refreshing IPA. South's closest thing to Heady Topper!

Wow! I didn't really like their 1st batch back in Feb. But they have been rumored to re-formulate this IPA and I believe it!
A: Slightly hazy, deep golden color with a fluffy, one finger, white head. Moderate lacing.
S: Mild citrus hop scent.
T&M: Mildly sweet up front with a wild hoppy citrus bitterness at the back of the tongue. Flowery bouquet of hops, hops, and more hops. Beautifully balanced with a grapefruit and pine prominence.
This stuff is awesome and I definitely will actively search for this now. If you are an IPA lover, don't miss this highly drinkable gift of original flavor in IPA's.

Decanted from can into my great lakes tumbler...
Was fortunate to come across this one while in South Carolina for a wedding...picked it up at the local Piggly Wiggly near Isle of Palms. PW had a very impressive beer selection of local, regional, international, and of course macro...they even had 6 or so beers on tap mostly local/regional...very nice job PW...
Back to Westbrook IPA...
A - hazy orange, creamy 1/w inch head, some good lacing...i love a cloudy unfiltered ipa!
S - initial crack of the can is of piney, grassy, herbacious and citrus notes...a beautiful combo...with some breathing the nose does dissapate a bit but leaves a nice sweet citrus and yeasty-bread aroma...very complex for an IPA
T - mimics the smell almost exactly with a creamy-yeastiness that you get from the unfiltered quaility...very great flavors happening here...
M - very nice smooth and creamy mouth feel, light carbonation, medium-light body.
Ovearll - An excellent IPA...a bit pricey but worth it...give this a try if you are in South Carolina or nearby! A great go too IPA and a refreshing one for spring and summer months! Cheers!

Appearance is gold haze with thick, fluffy carbonation that clings to the glass (when poured). Intense floral and citrus aroma. The hops overcome the three malts in the brew. I dislike malty IPA's and this flavor profile does not tilt towards the malty flavor profile. If anything, the malts sweeten the flavor. The finish is all hops with a dry bite.
I used to live in Michigan and Nebraska - this is South Carolina's cross between Two Hearted Ale (MI) and Crop duster (NE). This is a seriously underrated IPA from South Carolina. If served in a can, don't let it breathe - just pop the top and enjoy it.
