This one caught me off guard by the description of some modern american hops when it had a solid caramel, butterscotch, almost bordering on buttery maltiness. But the interplay of the fruity/floral american hops and the malt character is pleasantly disjointed and its depth of hop and malt flavor is intriguing. Grassy hop flavor and bitterness extend through to the finish which helps preventing this one from being cloying despite its sweetness.
As a modern IPA, this one kind of fails, but as an unique and interesting beer on its own accord, it succeeds greatly. I think of it like an english ESB made with american hops.
