On a fairly gentle pour into a pint glass this pours with a huge (2/3 of the glass) of white billowy slightly tan head. Lots of cascading from the bottom. Brew is a golden color with some cloudiness.
Earthy notes on the nose with a bit of sweet, sugary caramel. Some sugary floral hops aroma comes to my nose as well. Nice.
Sipping reveals a less sweet flavor than I anticipated. Instead it is more bittering with hops flavors. A bit of cascade hops come through toward the swallow. The swallow brings out a bit of sweet caramel along with the hops, but this is mostly dominated by some bitter hops. A bit disappointing really...not as flavorful as I hoped.
Very tingly carbonation up front on the tip of my tongue with a mid-body feel overall. Semi watery finish though.
Fairly drinkable brew. Not the best IPA I've had in my life, but also not the worst by any means. Easy drinker really.

A - Holly crap this stuff is over carbonated! A medium pour gave me more than two inches of head that seems to fizz out rather quickly with little head. Big clumps of sediment means either its old or just unfiltered. Either way not good so far.
S - Smell is mild not getting much hops or malts. Smell if anything is just of an average English pale ale.
T+M - Man that carbonation makes it hard to drink! My first sip gave me strong unbalanced pure hop bitterness in all it's unforgiving glory. Very little sweet or crystal malts for balanced just bitter and drain cleaner harshness.
Overall it's a real shame since I love their imperial stout but they can't seem to make anything else that impresses me. Pity.
