Pours a dark cloudy orange amber with a medium off white head. Aroma and taste is citrus pine hops upfront becomes more earthy as it warms up with some mild citrus fruity notes, caramel malt and yeast. Palate is a medium body, carbonation is fine. Finishes with a good caramel malt and yeast background followed by some good earthy hops bitterness for balance. Seems slightly heavy on the malt but still good.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12oz. bottle poured into a curved pint glass.

A- Solid amber hue, with about a finger of off-white head. Unfiltered, you can see sediment floating in the brew.

S- some bready, caramel tones with a decidedly earthy/floral hop component. Perhaps a bit of citrus rind.

T- Big smack of bitterness up front, mostly earthy, floral and a bit minty. The caramel and bready malt bill tries to cut through, but this is largely hop forward, and pretty bitter.

M- Medium bodied, but fairly thick and slick. A nice dry finish.

O- Much more like a jacked up English IPA than an American Interp. Good, and I'd certainly have it again.
