2.94/5  rDev -19.5%
look: 1.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

On tap at Husk.

Appearance - Murky pond water. Slight orange tinge to the brownness. No head. Just some lacing.

Smell - Minimal hop aroma. Some pine and grass. A bit of grain.

Taste - Much better, but nothing awesome. Some grapefruit hop and pale malts. Lots of grassy hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Very bitter.

Overall - Drinkable but there are plenty of much better local options.

Serving type: on-tap

Not much in the aroma department here. Clear gold with just OK foam. Surprisingly big piney hop given the aroma. Good balance with sweetness and a medium bitterness. Moderate carbonation and a light body as well. Overall and OK brew but without a lot of depth. There's better stuff out there.

Slanted Porch was promoted by the bartender as more of an IPA as opposed to a pale ale, but this is certainly a pale ale. This is a very good pale ale nonetheless, and to have it fresh from a growler was a treat. I prefer an IPA, but if you're a pale ale fan, this is solid!

Depending on when you get there is what could determine what version of this beer you're having. When I was there they had two versions on tap, one with centennial hops that came in at 5.5 and the version I had which included Amarillo and warrior hops with 5.3% ABV. Poured a golden body that is seethru with two finger head that dies quick with some lace and has a prevalent hop aroma and taste of citric but includes some grape as well. Hops are slightly stronger than any other part of the beer so gets to be drying and bitter as I finished the beer. Good hoppy beer that is just a little off balance.

Poured a wonderful honey orange hue with a nice thick fluffy white head that left sheets of lacing down glass.

A citric aroma laid with a touch of off grain husk. Odd but i wonder if it is water chemistry?

Nice clean bitterness that lays way to some grainy flavors, leading into more of a hop forward grapefruit goodness.

Medium bodied easy drinker.

Love the crew & what these folk bring to the table, just think that like many here in SC the water chemistry is trailing the creative.

A: Had this beer on-tap at Gene's Haufbrau, poured into a pint glass. Had an amber color and a slightly hazy consistency. There was a big, fluffy, creamy, long-lasting head. Very good lacing.

S: A surprisingly sweet, fruity aroma, with traces of hops and malt.

T: Tasted of hops (a fair amount - more than you usually find in an APA), a little malt, citrus, and possibly some pine. This beer borders on being an IPA, but that's not a bad thing. A tasty flavor.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a sweet, lively finish.

O: This is a solid, easy to drink beer. Well done and definitely drinkable.
