Reviewed from notes. Poured from 750 mL bottle into a Russian River pint glass.

A: Pours a dark amber, very hazy, with a 1 1/2-finger white fluffy head with good retention. Average visible carbonation. Surprisingly dark for an "IPA".

S: When first smelled after pouring, there's caramel sweetness, resin hops, some booze heat, bready malts - it smelled nearly like an American barleywine. Through the drink however, the impression of the high alcohol and heavy malt presence dissipated somewhat.

T: Orange citrus fruit and sticky resin, light cracker malt (more delicate than the aroma suggested), a touch of caramel malt. The back end is citrus-forward, reminiscent of the bright tangerine of an orange drink from camp. Lightly bitter in the hang.

M: Minimal alcohol presence, especially compared to the initial aroma. Lighter body than the appearance suggested. Carbonation sensation fairly low.

O: This had a weird dichotomy between the appearance and initial aroma impressions versus the flavors found while drinking. I drank a Lagunitas Daytime directly before this, and it's possible there was an effect on my palate. Overall, this was enjoyable, but the orange juice flavor I could have done without. I'm curious as to whether another bottle would have the same experience, but I didn't like it near enough to justify purchasing another bottle to find out.

Hazy amber pour with 2 fingers of foamy head leaving behind great lacing. Smells fruity, citrusy, and slightly oxidized. The flavor is soapy bitterness up front followed by a toasted malt backbone.. Bready and caramel notes make up most of this beer with a zesty citrus hop profile that is still present. Medium/light in body with higher carbonation.
Not sure when this one came out but it honestly held up fairly well with the hops. Didn't even know this was an ipa til I tasted it.. Says malt liquor on the label.. Heh
