Murky and dark copper/amber in color with an off white head.
Aroma is caramel and faint hops.
The taste is caramel and mostly bitter hops (not too much in the aroma range at all). The caramel and hops duke it out, caramel wins in the beginning, then the hops jump the caramel while it isn't looking and start driving for a while. Eventually they both aggree to disagree and start holding hands and learning to love each others differences.
This is quite drinkable and medium bodied.

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...
