I have to disagree with the poor reviews - I have had a couple of bottles of this so far and I have enjoyed it both times. It is not a West Coast IPA or a Imperial or Double IPA for sure -- but it doesn't claim to be.
Bronze / copper penny color with a 1" head that retains well at a 1/4" and hangs around all the way down. Nice, thick fresh lacing left on the sides of the glass. Aroma is mild pine, floral, some citrus and a sweey malt backing. Hops are restrianed up front and then kick in mid-pallete and on into the finish - more of an herbal, grassy hop finish. Same sweet malt backing to balance it out. The mouthfeel is creamy and medium bodied with a lower to middling level of carbonation. Overall drinkability is very good.
