From a bomber into a wine goblet, dark, nearly opaque brown. Firm pour yields a towering head of brown foam with great retention and clingy lace. Precipitating carbonation keeps the head solid straight down to the bottom of the glass. Great looking brew. Nose is complex with sharp hops-citrus and floral; some malt but no discernable alcohol; floral character overall. In the mouth, it's bitterly hoppy up front with a nice burnt toast malty character behind it. Strong hops presence with a bit of sweet malt for balance, finishing on a bitter, acrid note. Very nice flavor profile. Mouthfeel is slightly chewy, very smooth, with light carbonation, complementary of the flavor. Drinkability is very good; a bit stout for mass consumption but definitely an enjoyable sipper. Overall, this is a complex and delicious brew and a nice departure from standard "orange" IPA's. I'd definitely try this one again.
