A simply beautiful IPA. Pours a uniquely orange-copper color with a two finger head that fades to a nice frothy cap which lasts throughout. Each sip renews the cap. Slight carbonation that lasts for the duration. Flavor matures as it sits in the glass. Wonderful aroma that isn't overdone as some IPAs can be. Not too floral. I've had some IPAs that are killer as far as taste goes but are nearly ruined by the floral aroma. Almost smells sugary without tasting as such. A little malty with a hint of caramel. Flavor stays on the back of the tongue but doesn't ruin the palate. Few IPAs are better and/or more balanced than this one. Very reminiscent of its sister beer, Double Crooked Tree, but not such a kick in the ass. Definitely one to have two or three of without feeling guilty. Can't find anything negative to say about this guy. Highly recommend.
