Poured a honey orange clear color with two fingers of khaki white head. Good amount of even layered lacing along the sides of the glass. Nice and foamy. Very good retention on the top.
Smelled wet soapy hops. Kept getting dish detergent. Also got floral hops, soap, light pine and light lime. Soap I tell you.
Was not pleased with the taste. Gave it a “what the hell is that?” face. Tasted boozy, some cologne, some bad liquor, malt heavy, citrus hops, orange and very bitter. Did gradually seem to get better, but still not a lot of flavor.
Medium body. Creamy texture. Lively carbonation. Bitter finish.
Just did not like this beer. Very unbalanced and very few highlights.

This IPA is a slightly hazed amber. The off-white head is an unusual combination of fluffy and dense. It reaches a solid finger of height. Moderate retention leads to the eventuality of a strong island that leaves a ring of lace at the top of the glass and thick spotting below.
The aromas show a sort of C-hops profile, while malts add caramel sweetness and biscuit without overcoming the hops.
In the flavore it's somewhat stemmier and pithier with a chalky, slightly aspirin-like dryness along with honey-drizzled biscuit and caramel. Sweetness is set aside in the middle, where a hint of herbal leaf, dried grapefruit peel, and a ghost of mint come out.
The feel gives a solid mix of crisp and smooth with a drier middle to finish, while the end thins out very slightly.
Don't be fooled; even big breweries can make decent stuff whether craft beer hipsters like it or not. True, it rarely overwhelms, but this, at least, is solid.
