While in South Carolina for my son's wedding we stopped at Coleman Public House in Mt. Pleasant or Charleston SC to have some fresh oysters and seafood and try a few east coast brews. I ordered a Flat Top Black Rye IPA and was hit with one awesome freaking beer. Definitely and IPA as I could smell the hop notes and taste them but then the coffee/espresso/mocha flavors hit you and.......damn what a beer. I'm a huge hophead an just recently started trying the Cascadian/Black IPA's. Flat Top Brewing is from Banner Elk North Carolina, not sure how readily accessible this brew is but if you see it have one, definitely worth it.
