Poured a copper body with dense head that dies slow and there's some lace. A mostly citric hop aroma but there seems to be a little sweetness from both malts and fruits in the nose. A drier, hoppier IPA than most but not a taste bud killer at all. Mostly citric hops but the balance and taste of the sweet malts (caramel is all I really detect) is pretty good and a little spicy, crisp finish complements the medium bodied beer. Pretty good beer and one that is a little sweeter than your average IPA but still packs a crispy hop wallop.

P: Murky dark caramel body that looks similar to unfiltered pure apple cider. A massive cloudy of khaki clouds perch above and micro bubble chain male wrap the edges.

S: Belgian candy sugar, sweet plums, dark cherries, moldy oak, pilsner malt, medicinal yeast, raisin pound cake, toffee and honey sticks.

T/M: Thick sticky sweet malts, loads of barley, toffee, sourdough toast, tea tannins, dark fruits, with an abrasive chalky yeast and hop bitterness medley that cuts straight through the sugary start. Soda pop carbonation in medium body finishing with a dry rustic linger.

O: This was an interesting brew to say the least. Harsh bitterness with a huge sugary malt profile. This almost comes across as a hopped up quad. I think I might grab another bottle. Cheers!
