Just tapped a brand new keg at Flynn's in Greenwood, SC. Served in a tulip glass so I could give this beer a full breath before I gave it a trial run.
A - Poured a nice burnt orange with about 20% translucence - really nice look in the glass.
S - Citrusy hops from the start, then I began to pick up some faint banana on the end.
T- The hops are there from beginning to end, but I do get a nice maltiness in the middle. Nicely bitter on the end.
M - Light to medium on the tongue. The bitter piece keeps it on the light side, but the malt fills the mouth well
O - Congatulations to the Quest Team - a really nice, drinkable IPA right out of the starting blocks.

Once again my brother comes through...he donated 1/2 growler for my tasting pleasure of the Ellida IPA from my neighboring county brewery-Quest.
Smells nice and hoppy- mostly pine with sutble hints of grapefruit rind.
The color has a very nice orange hue....slightly cloudy which I love (reminds me of unfiltered homebrew)...
Earthy pine resin is the dominate taste sensation w/ grapefruit rind, apricot and maybe pineapple?---but only a hint.
The bitterness is upfront yet subtle...and lingers a while after the swallow.Bitter yet smooth.
The taste is very good but one thing is off...the body is thin.
This nice balance of taste needs a heartier backbone, and that could easily put this beer around a rating of 4.
I will revisit this beer...and update this reveiw a little later....certainly want to give this one a chance to win....but until the next tasting I will have to rate it 3.75.

“West Coast style IPA with loads of hops and balanced out with five varieties of malts.”
Served from tap into a Raleigh Rare & Vintage Beer Tasting snifter. Poured a dark yellow-orange with a half finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, earth, earth hop, fruit, grass, and subtle onion. The flavor was of sweet malt, earth, citrus hop, citrus, onion hop, and grass. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. I really like on the flavor of this one how the citrus balanced out just about every aspect that was going on. There was quite a bit of earthiness going on here, but there was definitely a good balance for it in the form of the grassy notes and citrus. I was really quite pleased with this one as was my palate. Tick.
