Pour - dark amber color with a soft appearance and a loose rather foamy head that clings tightly to the glass. Darker than some other IPAs but certainly just as appealing.

Aroma - orange, caramel, honey, brown sugar, some light floral hop notes. Faint hints of pine and fresh cut grass. The aroma comes and goes. I'd love to get a lot more of that fresh hop smell and as this warms a bit it does come out but you may need to be patient.

Taste - oranges and lemons with some flavors that come aross as apricot and peaches. Plenty of malty, caramel flavors without any sort of hop astringency. Not a super hoppy or bitter IPA with a lot more going on with the malt side of things. Perhaps the honey that this is brewed with plays a part in all of this?

Overall - an IPA that may come across as more on the malty side than being overly bitter and super hoppy. Not a bad brew by any means but it can come across more like a strong amber ale with a solid hop profile. Some floral and citrus flavors are there and as it warms there is a bit of spiciness from the hops.
