This beer has a lot going for it. It has a thick mouthfeel and pleasant honey flavors. It has a very bitter flavor while sipping that lingers as a strong aftertaste. This is something I am not particularly fond of in beer, though it's something that others sometimes look for. I finished drinking the beer I used for this review but I wouldn't buy a 6-pack of it. If you like hoppy IPAs then you might love this beer. It's other flavors are quite nice.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Pours two fingers of head on an almost clear medium straw colored body.
The aroma has some apricot, banana and orange. A nice departure from the normal IPA but too faint.
The taste is malt forward, but maintains a mild to moderate bitterness from the middle to end. The finish is a longer bitter.
The texture is softer with moderate carbonation.
Excellent balance and tastes great.
