This ale pours a very cloudy Orange brown color with a lot of sediment in the pour. It gives a small white head that gives way to a thin white film and very little lacing. The nose is extremely malty and rich but at the same time one note. The flavor on the other hand is much deeper and more complex than I expected. There is an abundance of malt up front (and some of it seems roasted giving a slight coffee bite to the beer). But behind that there is the bitter bite of a great double ipa. This is no west coast ipa but it still gives that pleasant bitter tingle on the tongue. There is also a slight alcohol bite that is pleasant and a great reminder of what this beer is. Id love to try another bottle of this, a little fresher next time to see if the hops take the foreground or if it meant to be malt forward. All in all a great pour from an unfamiliar brewery.
