Look - fairly dark brown color and very cloudy. Great head and good lacing.
Smell - strong spiced hop smell
Taste - weird to say but it taste like it looks. Sweet bitter spiced hop taste with a good amount of citrus in there. Has a good carmel malt backbone to give it the sweetness.
Feel - creamy with a medium body and medium high carbonation
Overall - great strong red eye ipa. Great mixtures of the 3. A lot to taste here.
