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

a little bit of a different take on the most overproduced style of beer on the market these days (surpassing the annoying middle of the road American saisons, a welcomed, if underwhelming, switcheroo). this one pours a lighter than copper red tinted color, clear for the most part, with a frothed up milky white head a finger or so high, maybe two, and fine retention. the nose is sort of cinnamon spiced, a bizarre characteristic for a big ipa, but its got my interest up. an oily hop profile, flirting with fruity, and a lot of alcohol, fusel heavy and I already know this is going to be a slow bottle. the flavor is not spiced at all, but more resiny, not hop resin per se, but almost like resin from my one hitter, sort of charred and sweet and bitter and more like something leftover, a byproduct, than something I want to consume first hand. this doesn't taste bad at all, but is certainly unique in that way. the alcohol is also very robust, more so than I really care for, as it dominates any interesting hop subtleties that I might otherwise be digging on. there is some malt balance, and a moment of clarity right before the swallow as the bitterness sets in, but the booze is just too much to overcome. fuller body, decent carbonation, not something im really getting off on, but my local shop just got a bunch of their stuff in, and this is good enough to make me want to check it out...
