Pours amber with a 2.5" ivory head, which lasts. Heavy lacing.

Aroma is floral, pine, grapefruit, caramel.

Taste is malty, grapefruit, caramel, pine, slightly sweet, resinous.

Medium body, vigorous carbonation. Dry, resinous finish.

Very heavy carbonation, cost it a bit, Overall, a very tasty IPA.

I gave this a try at my wife's birthday diner at Limoncello in Greenville where it's brewed. Knocked me out with it's excellence. It may become my IPA of choice.

Read the prior reviews. I generally prefer hopper and less malt as well. Getting spicy malt nose with a nice bitter after taste. Nice coppery color no head but glass had some lacing. Refreshing carbonation. Overall a nice surprise at the airport!

Pours hazy medium amber producing 2+ fingers of frothy, off-white/pale tan, somewhat lasting head that leaves wispy rings of lace. Aroma is floral dankness, citrus & resinous pine hoppiness balanced with caramel malt tones & a background hints of dog urine. Taste like the nose is floral, citrus & pine with a lively spiciness, backed by sweet caramel malts. The dog urine hints are present high on the palate. Starts hoppy & slightly sweet, balancing toward bitter hops/sweet malt in the middle, finishing with smooth caramel sweetness but rapidly gravitating slowly towards bitter again transitioning to a full bitter hop bite & slightly astringent aftertaste. Enough malt sweetness here to call this brew moderately balanced. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation, spicy & a little slick with a moderate chalkiness in the aftertaste. A nice example of the style.
