A - Pours a muddied copper gold-ish color with a solid finger of near white head, decent retention, very nice lacing.
S - Plentiful caramel and biscuity malts up front, defnitely some citrusy hops and a little boozyness. A little malt heavy, aromas arent very potent.
T - Citrus notes up front, strong caramel/toffee like presence. A nice sweet (not super dry) citrusy bite comes in nicely. A wee boozy at the finish, not enough to hinder the drinkability.
M - Medium bodied+, a little malt heavy for an IIPA. Still quite refreshing, low/appropriate carbonation.
O - Very solid offering, much like the IPA it is a little malt forward so I dont know why I was surprised with this one. A nice malty IIPA
Serving type: growler

Pours a golden yellow color with a two finger foamy white head.
Aroma is bready, malty, caramel, toffee.
Flavor is much milder than the aroma. Malty but you get a good hop bitterness with a lingering flavor is apple and citrus.
You can't taste the alcohol but you can tell its a heavy hitter beer.
