Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium to dark bronze-coppery amber with a thin off-white head and a thick ring around the glass leaving light lacing. Aroma of spicy caramel and bready malt, tropical fruit, subdued citrus and piney hops, a hint of ginger. Flavor of caramel malt, resiny pine hops, light citrus and grapefruit rind, tropical fruit, almost a red ale profile, but hoppier. Long lingering resiny hop bitterness in the finish, a bit astringent as the flavors recede. Medium bodied with good carbonation. A nice malty, hoppy IPA that leans towards a malty, fruity red ale, which doesn't hurt it in my book. Hops are still well present, but seem a bit tired; this could be an older bottle. No bottling date. I think this is a rebranding of this brewery's Crystal Springs IPA, which has the same ABV. However, since another BA created a new listing, I never tried the older version to compare and they have definitely rebranded this with new name, breathless run away train comparisons, and labelling I'm reviewing it here as seems appropriate. I have to say that normally when breweries use extreme comparisons for their IPAs they rarely live up to the hype. However, while this not quite an out of control behemoth, it's chugging along quite nicely. I'll look for more from this brewery.

s- highlight of this beer is the brisk smell of citrus, earth, and hops

t- a robust ipa with more malt than usual

m- creamy and not as dry or bitter as ipa tends to be
