16 oz. can. Pale hazy golden body. Big sudsy white head. Smells of lemon and pine hops. Light grain behind it. Tastes of lemon citrus hops, a bit of honey sweetness, and a light cracker malt. Drops off in the finish leaving a slightly soapy lemony finish with just a little bit of a pine hop bitterness. Simple and pleasant IPA. Could use a little bit more bitterness for my tastes, but drinks pretty well.

I'll start off by saying I've never had an IPA with this kind of nose. It''s uniquely tropical CANDY, like a Pez. While that might not sound appealing this beer from Edmund's Oast is nothing but appealing. Light haze and head on the pour and the aforementioned nose reels you right in. While there's plenty of nice hoppy notes in this brew, there is a decent maltiness to it as well. Something you don't frequently find in IPAs. Follows with a nice bitter aftertaste. Really nice ale at 7% APV.

Pour this 7% IPA from Edmund’s Oast and prepare for a fruity, citrusy blast to your olfactory lobes. Hazy golden color and a hop-forward, malt- middle, hop-finish make this beer a winner. Especially refreshing on a 90° day, this nicely balanced IPA will not disappoint either IPA purists or NEIPA lovers.

This clear amber can pour is fruity in the nose. The flavors include strawberry and melon with a bit of pine resin. The hop bitterness is moderate. This is a balanced, and quite pleasant IPA.

Canned 12/19/18.

The pour is a really nice bright golden yellow. Hazy in appearance, with a thin but frothy head of white foam that rises up to about a half a finger in height. Thick patterns of lace are left around the inside of the glass as the beer falls.

An abundance of light, citrusy aromas greet the nose. Grapefruit, lemon, tangerine, and subtle hints of pineapple are all easy to pick out. On the back end, hints of sweet citrus and floral hops round it out.

Crisp and refreshing, similar to the nose I get a lot of citrus, predominantly grapefruit with hints of lemon. To balance it out is a more prevalent hop potency, not overwhelming but instead soft and complimentary to the citrus predominance.

Light, smooth, and soft mouthfeel on this. Very refreshing, with a subtle profile that drinks really easy and never finds itself unbalanced.

DATE: January 18, 2019... OCCASION: preparing for tomorrow's storm with a fun night and a new beer--my first from South Carolina in a while... GLASSWARE: HopDevil nonick... pours a hazy, near New England-style haze that is sallow yellow, sparsely bubbly, and frothy... its white head settles to nice, single-finger lacing the glass and a thin film over top--promising... man, oh, man, oh mango here... papaya, pineapple, and stone fruits also invigorate the nostrils... first sip is smooth, slightly oily, definitely bitter (70 IBUs?) and protects its alcohol well... in fact, this lists at 5.1% ABV, but as Liquor Factory and the E's O website both clock this at 7%, I compliment them on a solid executive decision--this presents robustly and bitterly, full-bore at the teeth, but softly (and a little warmly) at the throat... chewy, of course... besides the mango and pineapple, stone fruit, light vanilla and pepper, apple and pear, with a subtle hint of honey... this kicks, confidently delivers its tropical fruits and resin, and works well as a stand-alone... the first E's O is a win, and a nice introduction to the brewery... definitely will check it out if I am ever in South Carolina...

Hazy pale gold with a medium haze and a head a couple of fingers high... Immediately impressed by what I'll characterize as a crisp, fresh aspect - had an almost crackery pilsener-esque feel and flavor... Citric, herbal, grassy, with notes suggestive of biscuit and fresh-cut grains... amply carbonated, mild sweetness and a mild-moderate bitterness... Something of a "classic" beer character, but soft and smooth... No canning date...

Had from can purchased at Lowe’s Grocery Myrtle Beach. Not sure when made but super fresh.

This is an awesome beer. A real hop lovers beer hidden in the new juicy stylings. Super fluffy head, tons of citrus on nose and a blast of hop flavor on the pallet. Go get this beer and enjoy. Reminds me of MIA MegaMix super-hopped

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that gradually died down but consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose—orange seems to stand out in particular—with hints of mangos.
T: The taste follows the smell, except that there are stronger flavors of mangos to pair with the citrusy hops. There is a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA is packed with lots of aromas and flavors of citrusy and tropical fruit hops. It drinks quite easily as it masks any traces of alcohol from the taste.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Pours a relatively clear medium golden honey in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and faint amber + medium golden yellow colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense sudsy foamy white head that slowly reduces to a medium sized finger thick cap in the center surrounded by a large patch of medium thick film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of citrus/orange and tropical/mango hops over the top of light aromas of biscuit + caramel + toasted malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness.

T: Upfront there are just shy of moderate flavors of biscuit + caramel + toasted malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by slightly stronger than moderate flavors of citrus/grapefruit zest, pine, citrus/orange and tropical/mango hops which impart a light to moderate amount of lingering bitterness.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly soft/fluffy mid-body with a hint of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol. While the aroma was not as pronounced as I would have expected (or desired), this beer delivers some really nice hop flavors and a solid mouthfeel.

Average IPA. Looks good and goes down well but the aroma and flavor are just too understated. Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow color with a big foamy/bubbly head. Head retention is excellent and there are wide thick rings of lacing on the glass. A slight bit of hop bitterness in the aroma...hardly anything else. Taste is somewhat better. Some mild piney and grapefruit/citrus hops, there is more biscuity malt presence than hoppiness. Level of bitterness is fairly good. Mouthfeel is crisp and rich enough. No hint of the alcohol. Looks like a pretty well crafted beer. The aroma and flavor need to be ramped up though.

Appearance - Pours slightly cloudy straw color with big foamy white head and lots of lacing.

Aroma - Light orange and mango with just a hint of pine. The aroma is not very strong hard to pick up much of anything.

Taste - The taste is much different that the aroma. On the front end big hit of pine and grapefruit, citrus peel, very light mango. The taste is more bitter than sweet but both are there, the bitterness does not overpower it is just strong right up front and then flows into a light sweet citrus taste.

Feel - Medium bodied, well carbonated pretty dry finish as the bitterness lingers

Overall - The aroma was a big let down on this but the taste is really solid. Nice to have a solid hoppy IPA with a nice mouthfeel.
