3.68/5 rDev -4.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
From a 355 ml bottle (bottle March 31, 2014) into a tulip.
A-A slightly aggressive pour produces about one and one-half fingers of dirty-white foam. Retention is not great, but the head leaves a nice layer of sticky lacing on the way down. The beer is dark orange in color and mostly clear. I can see a stray bubble or two in there.
S-The smell is a malt-forward (for an IPA) mixture of caramel, bread, and toast. The hops are pretty subdued with a little bit of citrus, floral scents, and leafy notes mixing in with malty sweetness. I do not get much oak.
T-The taste is similar to the smell with a heavy-for-the-style malt presence of caramel and toast. The hops are lightly citrus-flavored and I get a bit of bitter leaf and pine, as well some floral, tropical notes. Very little in the way of oak.
M-The feel is a nice, medium body with a lightly crisp carbonation and just a bit of oily coating.
O-I cannot say this is my favorite IPA. While I all for balance between malt and hop, this brew was just too heavy on the malt; the hops were mostly background chatter. I also did not get much in the way of oak on the nose or the palate. On the plus side, this beer is good-looking and has a nice, easy-drinking feel.

Poured from a bottle a little over a month old. Looks Amber in the glass and got a finger of off white head that dissipated quickly.
Smells like caramel from the malt and just a very slight smells of vanilla. Not a lot if hops smell on the nose.
Taste reminds me of Titan ipa. Slightly more bitter and I do pick up the oak and vanilla characters slightly
