Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. The beer pours a hazy yellow-gold, with a considerable thick, dense, foamy head. Smells of green spices (oregano and basil), hops, and sweet taffy. The beer has a slightly sour malt taste to it, with the hops being overpowered in the background. Almost a Flanders style sour characteristic. Some light citrus and spice notes to try to balance, but end up overpowered by the sour, as well. The beer is light and dry in mouth, with a sour aftertaste. The finish is lingering, and again, overpowered by the sour notes. Interesting beer, but I personally feel it misses the mark for an IPA, especially shooting for an American IPA. I had no real urges to reach for another one, so I'd say that ranks low on the drinkability scale.
