This IPA is a thickly clouded dark yellow-orange color. The head, tinted yellow, is almost one finger tall and shows some substance. Retention is good, and stick is quite good as well, some patchy lacing left nicely.
It might be a little strong on the malts, but it has a solid hops presence overall. Toffee and caramel sweetness balance the mostly resinous hops, some orange in there as well. There's a doughy biscuit note in the malts, too, and a bit of musk.
The falvor carries over pretty much the same. It's pretty good, but could use a more hop-forward approach as well as depth.
The body is medium and there's a firm crispness. It's also pretty smooth. The one thing that detracts is that there's a bit of slickness to it.

Poured into a perfect pint.

3.0 A: Moderately hazed light orange brown color. Just under one finger of frothy off-white head. Retention is below average and just a few wisps of lacing are left.

3.5 S: Citrusy hops - orange, mango, and papaya. A touch of sugary hops as well. Light caramel maltiness and some bready yeastiness. Smells good, but doesn't stand out among the myriad others.

3.5 T: Moderate bitterness. Citrusy hop flavor with the fruits mentioned above. Bready yeastiness and a mild caramel sweetness.

3.25 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation, but a little bity. Light creaminess and a bit chewy from the yeast.

3.25 D: Again, solid all around, but it loses some zeal from the style being ubiquitous.
