Nice smell, toasty taste, not so bitter, a little sweet.

Pours crystal clear pale gold producing 2 fingers of frothy, white, shortlived head that leaves webby lacing. Aroma is citrus, honey, oaky vanilla & thin caramel, the hops are restrained for an IPA. Taste is sweet fronted but quickly gives way to balance with the wood & hops & then a bittersweet finish that becomes mostly a bitter-oaky aftertaste. Citrus & floral/herbal hops, boozy alcohol, vanilla, sugar & just a hint of butterscotch. Alcohol is prominent for a brew of this ABV. Mouthfeel is moderate-heavy bodied, low-medium carbonation, tongue coating thickness, oily. This puts me more in mind of an ESB instead of an IPA.

Hazy bright orange. Fruity and woody smell and taste. Too sweet and very low bitterness for an IPA.

I liked this one. I got mine at Jungle Jim's near Cincinnati. It came in a bottled 4 pack...none on tap anywhere in the area I could find. It has a clear bright golden to orange color, no haze at all. The aroma was very hoppy and pleasant to me...though it has that strong green onion-grassy smell that some European beers have ( sorry...that is the only way I can think to describe it ) to it that some might call skunky...which surprised me. I repeat i found it pleasant and pretty complex. You can also discover the woody notes. The mouthfeel was a little lighter than I expected. The head was a bright white that started strong and dropped away after a minute or so to a thin lacing. It was not as hoppy on the tongue as most IPA's. I will buy again....

Not one of my favorites. With so many choices, there are much better brews.
