Glorious dark copper color with thin micro-bubble head that retains well.
Nose is sharp/prickly citrus, maybe orange peel or tangerine. Enticing nose for sure.
On the palate is a notable (pleasant) black Darjeeling Tea taste from the malt sweetness with an ESB-like quality to the ale. This is very clean, refreshing, with most of the hop character towards the end.
Creamy characteristic across the palate. The nice head probably enhances this (good foam onto the palate at first, especially). More body than expected.
Finish is firm and somewhat dry with a smooth chalky, tea-like sweetness with hop dryness. Very satisfying!
One of my favorite and more unique IPA's. Worth seeking out!
