Had a couple bottles tonight at Pour Richards restaurant in Bluffton, SC. 12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Slightly hazy amber body with bit of orange tint. One-finger white head that leaves solid lacing.

Relatively weak aroma. A bit of grapefruit citrus and light caramel malt.

The flavor is a bit better than the aroma and has solid citrus and pine notes. Good balance of caramel malt make for a solid east coast IPA.

Medium texture in the mouthfeel and very drinkable. Solid IPA overall.

Got this as a gift... and i think its pretty solid ipa... love the dark rich amber body. Really comes out with lovely malt flavors. Not west coast by any means. Like a hoppy amber ale, citrus and caramel. Very balanced. Nice head retention and good carbonation. Would drink this like crazy if i was a local. Nice overall beer
