As one other reviewer noted..."good drinking beer". It runs along the lines of Alchemy Ale to me, and very smooth easy to drink IPA that doesn't hit you hard in the mouth.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into an IPA glass.

Look: The body is a dark honey color with a foamy cream colored head that doesn't recede too soon. Nice lines of lacing.

Aroma: Cedar, spices, wood, hops.

Taste: A ton of bitter grapefruit rind, woody cedar, bitter hops, and black pepper.

Mouthfeel: Thick.

Overall: Sticky and really bitter. Not my thing.

Pretty good beer. Poured with a large thick cream colored long-lasting head, good leasing and a slightly hazy honey amber color. Aroma is fresh beer, malt and hop resin. Flavor is like aroma and all qualities of sweet bitter and acid are well-balanced. Body is very good perhaps just a touch soft. Good drinking beer.
