Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, yellow-copper coloring with a filmy, clingy, white head. Nose of citrus tart and sweet forward, with a toasty backbone. Light and crisp. Flavors are resinous forward, pine pitch and tassel, with a dank overtone on a light citrus and cracker backbone. Tasty brew. Light and smooth in mouth, with a resinous pitch aftertaste. Smooth, slick finish. This one could sneak up on you. Damn tasty! (467 characters)

On tap.
This is a solid West Coast style IPA, Moderately bitter, at most, with lots of citrus notes from the hops. Good level of malt balance. More complex than the average IPA. Aroma approaches 4. (201 characters)

Poured from the tap at Holy City Brewery into a pint glass.
Aroma- Big citrus smell with a followup of hops and malt.
Appearance- Pours a murky golden yellow with a small white head.
Taste- Nice citrus flavor with hops and malt, real good flavor.
Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. this beer has a slightly oily texture that goes well with the flavor.
Overall- Another strong candidate from Holy City, if in Charleston, SC I recommend trying this beer. (474 characters)

Good malt balance but nothing to write home about. Borders on west coast bitterness but doesn't quite hit the marks, seems lost in translation. (143 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Look - Relatively dark gold color. Slightly murky looking

Smell - Malts and citrus, piney/earthy smell

Taste - Malt heavy, not very bitter just that chewy malt taste. Aftertaste of orange, grapefruit and a little lemon.

Feel - Smooth, lightly carbonated. Thick for an IPA

Overall - Average beer. If you like malt you will score it higher than I did. (357 characters)
