look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Had on tap at Liberty Tap Room, Myrtle Beach.

Appearance was a clear golden color, typical of the style. Minimal head and lacing. Slight smell of grapefuit/grassy hops. Taste was very, very mild (for me) on the hops. More like a mild Pale Ale compared to most others I've had. The taste was OK, just not much on the hops. Mouthfeel was average as best, but you culd drink lots of these, as they are mild tasting.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Light golden slightly hazy color with a small white head on it that fades quickly, malt is underplayed by the citrussy presence of the hops, bitter enough to remind you you're drinking an IPA but the aroma and flavor are definitely full of grapefruit, orange, and lemon tones. Fairly thin in body and light in alcohol.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

The last beer we were served at the brewery, and we were told it was more of an interpretaion of an English IPA, I grabbed a growler of it, so this is from notes taken on 6/25/2011

A: pours a clear gold into a Duvel tulip with a finger of off white head that leaves a fair bit of lacing.

S: hoppy, a lot of citrus and orange. a surprising amount of sweet caramel hitting the nose.

T: still a lot of citrus, flowery and orange hops, but what was a nice sweetness becomes too much even for an English IPA and takes away from the nice hop profile.

MF: heavy, good carbonation. crisp, sharp flavor transfers.

O: Good beer, but it could make some improvments with the sweetness.

Had on nitro-tap @ Mellow Mushroom in Myrtle Beach.

A - Since it was nitro-tapped, it came out almost looking like a Guiness. Had to settle out a bit. After settling, was clear, amber colored with off white frothy head. Left lacing and nice cap throughout.

S - Some floral, citrusy hop character, but not much. More malt then hoppy. A little unusual for an IPA.

T & M - Decent amount of bittering hops, but not as citrusy as I typically like with my IPA's. The mouthfeel again, was similar to a guiness - very creamy and smooth.

Overall - Decent offering - nothing special. I'd have again, but wouldn't go out of my way.

Very nice looking IPA. Creamy head and some decent lacing. It seemed nice pine and a little citrus I think. The taste was were this one fell short a little bit. Kind of average, nothing too distinct. The mouthfeel was good and it had the good carbonation. Overall, I would give this IPA a good overall rating. If you see it or can find it, give it a try.

On tap at Liberty Tap Room in MB.

Deep gold color. 1-finger intense thick cream head. Great retention and thick, thick lace.

Strong clean pine nose.

Thick creamy texture. Very nice hop burn. Almost solid pine flavor with some floral underneath.

Extremely tasty IPA. Nitro version dramatically improves this beer.

Pitcher from the Mellow Mushroom in myrtle beach.

Pour is clear amber with a two finger head that coats the glass as it recedes. Aroma is floral hoppiness, good aroma. Flavor is subdued, with a decent malt backbone but the hops don't really break through. Certainly drinkable, tastes great after a round of golf. Just wish the hops asserted themself a little more.

3.53/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Found this for the sampling at T-Bonz at Barefoot Landing in Myrtle Beach. It shows a dark amber color with a big fuzzy white head and outstanding lacing. The aroma is a vey mild earthy hop but nearly nondescript. The flavor says caramel and light citrus hops. Enough hop to qualify as an IPA but not enough to make this a high ranking entry. It has medium body with some creaminess but it is a tad watery in feel with minor carbonation. The hops grow on you, lemon biscuit. Not bad but not highly memorable.

Pours a golden Amber with a good looking head. Floral scents give off a great little bit of aroma, citrus is also very present. Taste is hoppy, but not too much. There is a strong caramel presence as well, which makes for a nice malt flavour to balance out. The carbonation is a little strong for my taste, which is not to say that it is bad, but simply not my cup of tea (or beer for that matter). despite the carbonation, the beer still goes down smooth, and is relatively drinkable. overall a good IPA, and fairly above average fare. A much better introduction to New South than their white ale. A very good IPA from my local brewery
