Pours a finger of head on a clear dark straw colored body.
The aroma is floral, barnyardish and ripe grapefruit and apricot.
The taste heavy on the malt but the sweetness is contained by the lemon and pine bitterness. Good balance.
The texture is thick with moderate carbonation.
It's a big malty IPA.

As a fan of IPA beers I like tasting all kinds of different ones, this one wasent bad going down but then came the nastyness... The after taste is like cough medicine, it's the type of beer that you have to drink holding your breath and chugging it in order to be able to keep it down. If you're a fan of this beer then good for you, all I'm saying is that I was not a fan and will never buy it again.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into a pinot noir wine glass. Best by Nov 14 notched on side of label and 3284 on bottle neck. Single purchased at Total Wine (Norwalk, CT).

A: Ruby-amber and clear with 1-finger of oatmeal-colored head with good retention and a widespread smattering of lacing.

S: Aroma is lacking with not much aroma -- mostly a bit of dark crystal malts and herbal, earthy, lightly floral hops. A light buttery note from the yeast.

T: Flavor is pleasant but uninteresting with some dark crystal malt sweetness and roastiness coupled with benign floral and herbal hopping. Yeast again brings some butteriness, and alcohol is light to well-hidden. Bitterness is light-moderate.

M: Smooth but lightly tacky and with medium-full body and relatively low carbonation.

O: A benign but boring beer with good ABV kick but not much else to say. Flavor fits the balanced DIPA style, but the hops are too subdued and crystal maltiness is too much or the style.
