Poured from the tap at the Renaissance Hotel in Charleston, SC. The appearance is a cloudy orange color with a large white head. The aroma is a very good mix of malt and hops. The taste matches the aroma

Had this at the Oyster House on Market Street in Charleston. Poured into a pint glass from a 12 oz. can, this beer is a hazy bright orange color with a fairly small, average lasting head (chilled glass). Some bands of lacing on the glass. Aroma and flavor are slightly sweet caramel and bready malt and piney and earthy hops. Fairly balanced brew with some understated bitterness. Mouthfeel is rich, smooth, crisp with some bitterness. A solid East Coast IPA, but not a hop bomb.

A 12oz. can dated 13 SEP 16 poured in a twelve ounce snifter/tulip for the review.

Look- Pours a cloudy dark gold with a brownish tint leaving a generous finger of white foam. Some medium lacing is left behind as it slowly settles.

Smell- Pine, grapefruit and something mint-like. Some weak floral aromatics and malt emerge in the back.

Taste- Very floral to begin, followed by grapefruit and a healthy amount of malt sweetness.

Feel- Slightly creamy to start, then finishes quite dry.

Overall- A good beer, but it falls a little short for this hophead. While it leans on the maltier side of the IPA spectrum, the pleasant floral notes give it a degree of redemption for me. If you prefer your IPA's more malt forward, this is your beer.

Received in a can as an extra. Dated 8/30

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a nice slightly hazy honey amber hue with a three finger off white head that faded slowly to leave sticky side lacing and a nice blanket.

S - Aromas of light malty sweetness and breadiness, decent soft pine, decent earthy hops.

T - Taste is similar to the nose. Fair amount of malty sweet and crackery grains, loads of generic bitterness. Caramel, some fainter earthy hops.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, some thinness, very light alcohol.

O - Overall the appearance on this was very nice but it was all downhill from there. Rather heavy malts mixed with earthy hops created a rather lackluster flavour.

Serving Type: Can

12 oz can. Hazy deep orange color, two finger head fades slowly, rings of spotty lace. Aroma full of melon, toasted bread. Similar taste with sweet malt and melon, plenty of hop bitterness comes in, herbal, oniony, piney. Very solid IPA, lots of flavor.

Can > Tulip Pint

A - Clear orange gold with a thick foamy two finger head, medium lacing.
S - Nice aroma, lots of grapefruit, floral notes, tangerine, big resinous hop notes, caramel malt.
T - Fairly balanced, caramelt and bread malt are pretty predominant then you get some big bitter citrus and pine, light floral notes, orange juice, some grape.
M - Kinda chewy, lingering bitterness, a little more intense than your average IPA.
O - Aroma is good, but it doesnt match up in flavor.
