Bottle poured into a flute type glass.
The appearance of this beer looks good and is a pretty standard color for an A-IPA. I poured this beer rather hard and vigorous to generate a nice and rich white head that lingered for quite a while and let nice lacing while receding. The color of the brew is a nice dark orange/light amber color. The aroma is way sweeter and maltier than most A-IPA's I have had or reviewed. It smells very sweet and somewhat like honey, not really what I was expecting, but it doesn't smell bad. The hops are hard to pick up in the aroma. The flavor delivers a very balanced brew, but the aftertaste is a little metallic and iron-like. The initial flavor is very light and rather sweet. There is just enough hops in this beer to balance it, but I don't find much of a bitter, citrus, or floral/herbal flavor in this brew. The hops seem to only balance the malt and not really pop as a flavor of their own as they should in an A-IPA. The MF is rather standard and a medium bodied brew that is easy to drink.
This is a good beer, but not what I would expect for an A-IPA. I think that it needs some more hop presence in its flavor profile. Otherwise appearance and MF are spot on.
