From a diconic,

Very nice foamy, pillowy head; loads o' lacing. Typical deep amber
color for an AIPA.

Very potent nose with plenty of hops but much more malt
smell than almost any AIPA that I have had. It's a complex of
aromas hence I gave it a higher than average score there.

The foretaste is kind of citrusy(?) but rapidly followed with those buckets of malt then a bitterness at the back of the tongue.

The feel is just average, not notable.

Very worthy beer and more complex than most AIPAs. If you
are looking for fresh hops to dominate, this is not the AIPA for
you. But, if you like maltiness with a good portion of bitter, then
definitely check this out.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Clear copper color with great clarity and a one finger white head that fades fast and leaves ok lacing.

The aroma is a clean, bready malt backbone with a touch of caramel dominated with floral and citrus and a touch of pine.

Clean malt bottom. Hop flavors dominate with sticky resiny pine notes cutting through floral and citrus flavors. Out of balance. Needs a touch more sweet malt.

Refreshing, crisp, and medium bodied.

Overall, an easy drinking beer. Out of balance, but not bitter. Interesting, but not my favorite IPA.
