Appearance - This beer was gorgeous altho strangely dark brown in color. Other than that, the liquid was clear and the head lasted forever leaving a thick film along the inside of my pint glass.
Smell- I get some nice pine hopping up front, don't understand what all of these "no hops" reviews are talking about, but there is also a huge malt base here that does kind of take over the nose.
Taste - The malts definitely take over at the taste but I'm still getting some good pine and hop bittering with a smudge of orange. I would have liked to have seen a little sweetness from the malt but otherwise this has a very pleasing flavor profile.
Mouthfeel - This is a solid medium-bodied with strong bitterness from beginning to end.
Drinkability - This is not a typical example of the an AIPA as others have noted but IMO within range of the style with quality ingredients and high quaff ability quotient.
Serving type: on-tap
