A nice earthly IPA with a heavy malty balance with herbal hops.

A - Deep old fashioned burnt orange, haziness, creamy heard
S - piney resin hops with a dark malt nose without being roasted. Not really inspiring but here goes nothing
T - Big sweet and nutty malt character hits of pine and a bit of the dirty hops & slightly citrus
M - Medium body and a well rounded lasting mouth feel
O - I had this with a Vietnamese noodle, sweet/sour/hot sauce and stir fried pork was one of the best pairings I have ever had. It was great and really opened the beer up.

I wish my bottle tasted as good as other reviewers notes indicate. I presume my bottle was old and the hops had faded. I have to go out of state to get it, so it may be a while, but I'll re-review when I can.

A: cloudy; a deep bronze; 1 finger off white head that receded slowly to a thick cap; really nice lacing;

S: muted; a little flora. a little tropical fruit, and a little pine; hard to distinguish; I can see how this would be really nice if there was more of it;

T: follows the nose; difficult to get anything specific; moderate bitterness from mid-palate through the finish;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: the potential was there, it just didn't come out;
