Can poured into a pint glass

A: Pours a very deep copper, almost red hue. A very thick, 1.5 inch off white head erupts with the pour, and hangs around for a while. Extremely sticky lacing throughout the glass.

S: Dank, moist, grassy bitterness. Reminiscent of tea leaves to me. Has a slight piney aroma as well.

T: Taste follows the nose closely. Very earthy and dank. A piney grassy flavor, but with a sweet backbone. Slight flavor of honey. A bready quality to it. Just the slightest bitterness.

M: Thick and full-bodied for an IPA. Very creamy and rich. Not like the typical IPA

O: Tasty but not my favorite rendition of an IPA. Really lacks the citrusy, dry bite I look for in my IPAs. A unique take on the style for sure, but just not a top choice for me.
