Pours a burnished amber colour, decent foam but sinks quickly. Nice lace. Looks quite nice.

Smells a bit old, lacking hops. Malty but a bit muted. Touch of caramel, corn and brown sugar. Not bad but a bit lacking.

Taste is better; definitely more bitterness. Malty upfront - biscuity with caramel toffee and slight toastiness. Then a touch of citrus rind and bitterness is good. Bit of oxidation on the back, but decently tasty and retains remnants of a very decent IPA.

Decent body; not too much hop pull. Yeah, smooth.

Drinks ok. Full flavour could have been amazing. Just a bit weathered.

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.
