look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A. A very nice oragne color. Clear. Remarkable head that stayed around. great lacing.

S. Aroma of watery oranges. Little in the way of any hops.

T. Watery. Didn't much care for it.

M. Almost like a watery Bass. Light carbonation.

D. I won't buy another growler, but will not pour this one down the drain.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Poured from a growler to a tulip glass. Had a bright orange color and a cloudy texture. There was an inch and a half of foamy, long-lasting head. Good lacing.

S: An underplayed aroma of malt, yeast, and some hops.

T: Tasted of Belgian yeast, malt, and a slight dose of hops. To be honest, the flavor here was pretty thin and mild, but did show some potential.

M: A fairly well-carbonated beer with a dry finish. Medium-bodied.

D: This is an uneven beer. Not to say it's undrinkable, but it does have some flaws. Still, it is drinkable.

Happy to be the first one to review this beer, the guys behind it are cool cats, and it's exciting to have another good local brewery. 32oz swing-top growler filled at Growlers in Hilton Head, SC. Poured into a pint glass.

A - Pours a clear, glowing orange-brown with a soapy white head that hangs around for a bit. Leaves nice sudsy lacing on the glass. Good-lookin' beer.
S - Very clean aromas of caramel malt, spicy esters, earthy hops and a bit of bubblegum.
T - Nicely balanced blend of caramel malt, spicy Belgian yeast, more earthy hops, and a touch of citrus. Finish has a pleasant grapefruit bitterness.
M - Medium-thin bodied with crisp, sharp carbonation.
D - Very drinkable, I had no problem with the 32oz, and will seek this out again.

Though not my favorite style, this is an excellent BPA, especially from a new brewery. I see great thing from these guys!
