Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, hazy, copper-gold coloring with a bright, white halo of bubbly head. Nose of pine pitch, caramel backbone, and subtle grapefruit notes. Flavors are toasted forward, with resinous hops, dank, and a blast of tropical fruit. The aftertaste is more bitter and resinous, with hints of tropical fruit. Light bodied and smooth, with a bitter, tropical fruit linger on a smooth finish. Good brew.

Bottled on 11/15/13. Pours a medium amber against a golden hue. Average head and lacing. Nice nose of balanced pine and citrus hops. Almost medium body with good carbonation. The taste is artfully balanced of hops against a light malt background. As the nose, the flavor profile is pine hop followed by grapefruit citrus. A nice bitterness, but this brew focuses on hop flavor. Clean finish with a lingering grapefruit flavor and slight bitterness. Hats Off to my brewing brethren on the SC coast and the guys at Greenville Beer Exchange that recommend this. This is an art of using hops and is better than SN Celebration in a side by side.

Thanks to james582!

S: Raw, resiny, fresh hop aroma, some grapefruit candy.

L: Murky, yellowish brown, creamy whit head that dissipates.

T: Clean, hop laden maltiness up front. Candy like hop flavor. A very fresh hop flavor into a medium low, slightly spicy bitterness. A cracker-like maltiness in the background. Prominent herbalness as it warms, leafy almost.

M: Medium bodied, medium low carbonation.

Really interesting hop combo, cascade and Mt. Hood. Never had anything quite like it. Could use a bit more carbonation, but a very unique IPA.
