Served on draft at Craft Conundrum in Charleston SC.

I was so surprised by this one. Absolutely wonderful. Arrives in the oversized snifter a picture perfect, slightly hazy orange grapefruit color.

This could be a NE IPA with all the juiciness. Aroma is full on hop glory. Tropical, citrus, pine, rose hips. No earthy English hops here. Suits me well. Bright and airy aroma.

Flavor is god damn beautiful. If possible, there is a perfect balance of pine, fruit, floral, citrus, and juniper. Not sure how they did it, but it is nearly perfect.

There are many superlatives to describe this one. I was close to giving some fives, but stopped just short on the perfect score. A phenomenal beer! Not sure why this one is getting overlooked. Very similar to Jai Alai except better. Yeah, I said it.

On tap at the Pour Taproom (Greenville, SC).
Pours with a hazy amber body and a generous white head that has very good retention and lacing.
Aroma: mildly pungent and rather hoppy with fruit, herbal and pine notes. Citrus and other fruits are dominant.
Flavor: hops dominated with faint bready malts. Moderate bitterness for style.
Mouthfeel: near medium body with soft, medium carbonation.
Overall: A mainstream, well crafted American IPA.
