2.95/5 rDev -14.5%
Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.
A real nice simple copper amber body, quite clear, with some slow rising carbonation. Head has a nice light off white and tan color, swiss cheese like and some good retention. Falls slowly. Looks like a nice amber.
Nose is really off. Mud, bile and vomit slightly, with a good touch of caramel and sweet malts. There's just this obvious hint of a slight off putting really bitter aroma that doesn't scream obvious hop vein. No herbality, tea, not even citrus\. Good sweet malt hiding in the background though.
Taste is rather surprising. I was expecting pain, luckily there is a good thick and solid backbone of malt and sweetness to bring the flavor forward. Unfortunatly the sweetness and hop angle on this is really missing. Sweet brown sugar, a bitter finish, with a real dry hop aroma that has no angle. Just dry and bitter finish, almost cotton mouth feeling.
This is not really getting it done to style for me. It has some good qualities, mostly the mouthfeel, but the palate doesn't deliver and it does not smell very good.

A: Beautiful frothy light sandstone colored head is firm and well lasting sitting atop a darken reddish-orange body. A light spacious slow rise of effervesce within while a milky coating of lace sticks to the glass walls.
S: Fresh cut grass and oranges, dry caramelized bready-pine with a relatively low rate of aromatic sense. Low key, mundane, lacks enticement.
T: Flavor was bitter, dry pine, dry caramel with a bitterness of dried lemon peels. Mid-range level of dry hopping, lower end level of complexity. The bitterness is there, just not alot of flavor component. Some warming citrus flowers and dry bread crust, with a dry caramelized citrus twang on the swallow.
M: Malty medium heavy body, light range of carbonation presence, dry bready crust feel on the tongue.
O: Again, dry hopped, very linear flavor-wise, with a dry malting. Dry drinking, lacks excitment and range of clarity. B level of dry hop bitterness, C level of execution and delivery. Ok,

Poured into pint glass
A: clear deep Amber color with a creamy off-white head. Good head retention.
S: sweet and bready malt with a light tinge of bitter hops.
T: nice mildly sweet malt body, a little grainy, and lots of sharp hop bitterness. Very bitter and nothing else. Like bitter grapefruit extract.
M: creamy yet light body. Crisp. Very bitter.
O: decent offering. Won't be purchasing again tho.

Received in trade from mdaschaf, thanks for the opportunity.
Pours a deep copper color with a nice sized white head that exudes moderate retention and lace. Floral grassy and citrus hops are the first aromas to find their way into my nostrils. Hints of earthy minerals as well as some bready and toffee like malts round out the nose. Taste is more malt that hop. Lots of toffee and bready caramel with a fair amount of earthy herbal floral hop bite. Leaves a long lingering herbal earthy mineral flavor at the end of every sip. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet resinous mouthfeel. Decent beer, but not my favorite IPA by any stretch.
