Great, great dark reddish appearance like a Moroccan sunset. Nose is wonderful; like an orca clearing it's blowhole of pure, yet light hop juices. Taste is a bit different; not harsh like listening to a Katy Perry record, but deceiving like Katy Perry with makeup on. It's a bit "sharper" than most IPA's, but still smooth.

Yeah, like Katy Perry, it's a bit confusing. I mean, it's ok and I would order another, but, would I?

Bless your hearts, my children.
