Pours a copper color with a finger of head that took some time to completely dissipate and left some lace behind when it finally faded away. The nose has both hop notes and malt notes. The malt backbone is not as prominent in the flavor profile as the nose might suggest. The finish is semi-dry and pleasantly hoppy. This is a solid IPA, but it simply can’t come close to its cousin – Sculpin.

Date: 3/19/14
Location: Hock and Hops
Draught/Bottle: Can
Glassware: Delirium Tremens Tulip
Appearance: An amber/brown colored beer with a huge head pour. The head stays for a while as you watch the carbonation settle down immensely.
Aromatics: The smell is of oranges, grapefruit the hops dominate my nose. Much larger smell of malts then Sculpin as well. Missing a lot of the aroma because of a cold though.
Flavor: The oranges are what hit me with this beer. I feel like they are all over my palate. I'm also getting a lot of the hops in a more resin kind of way. The tongue feel is more bitter because of the hops. The malts are there in the background a good bit.
Finish: The hop resin holds to my mouth and helps to keep the orange flavor to my tongue. I'm also getting a load of carbonation just sitting there also.
