L - Pours a hazy orange body with a one finger head. Good retention and not much lacing.

S - Balanced nose of citrus, bitter orange rind and sweet malts.

T - Tropical fruits, sticky sweetness, malty and a medium hop bite.

F - Medium bodied and medium carbonation.

O - Very solid IIPA here. I would definitely drink again.

2 oz bomber purchased at the source in No. Charleston.

Body is deep reddish gold. Thick, sticky white head.

Nose is fresh citrus and sweet hops, crusty with resin and oils.

Flavor is heavily sweet, but also intensely hoppy and complexly flavorful. A real mouthful!

Mouthfeel is chewy and sticky. Serious carb gives extra body.

Overall: A really, really nice East Coast DIPA. A touch too sweet for my personal taste, but not enough to lose marks.
