I'm trying this at my Bestie's in Charlotte. It poured a clear copper with thin white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent had hints of bitter hop. The taste was east coast ups leaning...meaning more bitter than citrusy. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's ok.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass at River Dog Brewing in Ridgeland South Carolina. The appearance is a slightly cloudy yellow color with a medium sized white head. an excellent flavor.

Served from tap into a flared Pilsner. Poured a deep yellow-orange with a one finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, earth, caramel, spice, pine, pine hop, spicy hop, and subtle earth hop. The flavor was of sweet malt, pine, pine hop, earth, earth hop, and spicy hop. It.had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. The was a fairly nicely balanced flavor going on that made this quite easy to drink the aroma was more on the spicy earth side but still not bad overall. A decent IPA from the lowcountry. Tick.

Poured from a 12oz can.

Gorgeous orange body with only 2 fingers of head but excellent lacing. Fleshy fruit flavor, mostly orange. Bitterness in the back end with a bit of sweetness and mild resin.

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, clear, copper coloring with a sparse, filmy, white head. Nose of crisp and tart citrus, cedar, and subtle caramel. Very clean nose. Flavors are resinous forward, with pine pitch and grassy notes on a caramel backbone. Smooth bodied and balanced, with a great lacing on the glass as you drink. The finish has a bitter linger, with resinous ghosts celebrating your good taste in brews. Solid beer!
