A - Pours a clear golden/slightly copper with nearly a finger of near white head that dissipates relatively quickly. Decent lacing is left on the glass.
S - Pretty fantastic citrusy aroma, mostly grapefruit/lime although the description provides a bit of a spoiler. My mouth is almost to the point of watering from the wonderful smells, it probably was when I had the first couple but I've actually had the pleasure of enjoying several of these during the week. Mild caramel type traces come through, some hop bitterness but it is really mostly out shined by the citric fruits. Alcohol is detectable.
T - Fairly dry up front, a nice hop bite for sure... immediatly followed by flavors of orangeish/grapefruit and a very mild/complimentary lemon/lime type tasty tartness. Minor alcohol presence at the finish into a dryness that lingers for maybe 15 seconds. Really ideal IMO
M - Light+ or Medium-. Very drinkable for the abv, appropriate carbonation
O - Was really looking forward to this one, huge fan of the Charleston Beer Exchange and citrusy hop bombs so this is 100% up my alley. It did not disappoint, easily one of my 5-10 favorite IPAs. I fully intend on getting as much of this as I can while I can.
