The pours a creamy off white head that quickly dissipates. The beer's color is a brownish orange instead of the usual amber variation. The beer is filtered and clear. The beer's smell is unusually malt forward with very little hops coming through. The malt's smell is caramel malt. The hops that do come out are an orange and floral smell but are covered by the heavy malt presence. The taste is very similar to the smell with a stronger caramel malt presence than the hops. After the beer warmed up a little bit, the hops emerge but barely. The hop taste becomes a grapefruit taste but is still dominated by the malts. The hops are not as strong as one would expect from an IPA. The beer is medium bodied but on the heavier side because of the malts. Also, very little carbonation. The IPA is okay but it is very unusual in that the malts have a much heavier presence than the hops. I probably won't pick this one up again because of the lack of hop flavor. Given the name, I expected more hops.

Poured from a 12 FL. OZ. bottle into a pint glass. Best if enjoyed by 2nd week of December 2013.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden body. Thin off white head and a lot of sediment.

Smell: Heavy sweet caramel malt aroma. Honey and molasses. This is an IPA? Where are the hops??

Taste: Again, very malt forward with only a slight hop bitterness. I'm guessing this is past its prime based upon the best by date. It is a malt bomb.

Mouthfeel: Thick and syrupy, but little to no aftertaste beyond the bitterness.

Overall: Not terribly impressed, maybe need a fresher example.
