look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Smaller fizzy slight creamy head covering fades at fair rate, little lacing, of course it's very dark for an ipa, murky iced tea brown maroon color.

Nose brings some sweet candy malts, little nutty brown malt and reddish toasty but not caramel, into earthy herbal hops, little black tea, bit grassy and leafy, little candied orange peel, etc, and touch of sugary iced tea.

Taste brings more sweetness, toffee, brown sugar, little candy syrup but not at all syrupy, sugar daddy, also not super sweet surprisingly. Then earthy herbal hops, grassy leafy, black tea, little orange peel and herbal tea spices, creamy smooth rich feeling. Fair to heavier bitterness attempts to increase on the finish, quite bitter on the finish, earthy herbal hops, more herbal tea, little dry but sticky, faint warming booze, candy flavours lingering too.

Mouth is med to bigger bod, rich creamy smooth like, decent carb, very faint booze.

Overall... well if this was a Hoppy brown ale it would be pretty nice, but an ipa?!! Nothing like it.
