Tried this brew a couple times. Just plain don't think to highly of it. Very hoppy and dry, not necessarily a bad thing, but it got a burnt flavor to it that lingers.

Bitter IPA, piney, burnt wood or dried pink grapefruits someone set fire to. Kind of a gritty dirt taste afterwards that lingered a long time. Did not really like this beer much, but it is hoppy, it is an IPA and some will like it. Not for me.

12 oz bottle poured into an imperial pint glass, tasted within 90 days of bottling.

Hazy pure amber color. Thick and foamy beige 2 finger persistent head with some nice activity.

Sharp aromas of fruity citrus and toasty bread like. Strong highly bitter flavors of smoky orange peel and clove. Slightly missing some freshness.

Medium slick body with average carbonation. Strong and long mouth puckering and astringent finish. Powerful smoky bitter mouth coating of cloves and orange.

Overall : It's like chewing an orange peel, interesting taste but way too bitter.
