Clear aged gold color with a nice offwhite head. Very lovely smell, as well. Malts bursting through the ottin hops. The hops smell piney with some citrus notes. Also smells pretty sweet. Taste does not really match the smell, in terms of the hops. Alcohol is also present. Taste is heavily malted with a bitter aftertaste that lasts. As for saying "not completely an IPA," that is totally not true, as this has the character of an IPA, maybe not the overtly aggressive character that some think are outlining the style these days, but matches quite well with the idea. A nice IPA, though nothing to write home about.

Pours a clear copper with a big and very persistent head. Lots of lacing on the side of the glass. Smell is big citrusy grapefruit hops. Taste is mellow toasty carmel malt upfront. A little underlying malt sweetness throughout. Finishes with an herbal hop bitterness. Heavy creamy mouthfeel. This is a very rich tasting IPA. And by that I mean it has a fantastic maltiness behind the hops and even challenging the hops for center stage here. Also the heavy mouthfeel. Maybe the drinkability suffers a bit, but this is a great, and unique, IPA.

overall a good beer. This IPA seemed to have a little more sweetness than most but overall it seemed to balance out quite well. I like the way high IBUS but was pleased with this one also. Just a touch of creaminess added to the balance. Overall happy with this one. After reading other reviews, I was kind of mixed about trying, but once I did, I was glad I did...
