This pours slightly hazy rich amber, with a fluffy head that does not stick around very long - a small foamy ring and slight foam film remains. The ring laces a bit but goes away and does not regenerate, so the foam is completely gone from the top by the end of the glass.
I can't quite describe the smell. Floral and hoppy, somewhat ascedic. Though I cannot place what is going on here, it actually does smell fairly good.
taste is really good, slightly sweet, a mild hint of pine hops, some dryness in some other kind of hops, notes of banana and mild spices. It balances well, with a hint of alcohol overtone, maybe slightly burbon like.
It has a creamy mouthfeel that goes dry in the back of the throat and turns oily as it dissappears.
It leaves a very slight bitter aftertaste. Very slight.
To me, this is a strange swing for an IPA. Not sure what I would classify it as, though. If you sort of like IPAs, but are looking for something with a little less bite than usual, search high and low for this and give it a try! If you are a staunch IPA lover, give this a try anyway - it will be an interesting sample. Overall, I do recommend trying this if you can find it.
