Hazy medium brown with a big stable cream coloured head. When the head finally starts to recede it leaves a bunch of lacing.
Very clean fresh aroma, hop dominated. Citrus and pine. Expected it to be a little more fragrant, but smells nice enough.
Taste is also very fresh. Not as dominated by the hops, there is a fair amount of malt presence giving a caramel covered biscuit impression. Citrus rind finish. Good.
Body is on the lighter side and the carbonation is a little coarse. It is not far off how I like IPA's to feel though.
I think this is a pretty good brew. Not the in your face bitterness some might look for, but a pretty drinkable beer all together.

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...
