Bottled December 18

Pours a translucent amber, thin white head. OK lacing.

Nose is fairly malt forward, lots of caramel and toast. The background hop profile is mostly spicy hops, with just a hint of citrus/pine.

Flavor is more of the same. Hops come through more, but are muted a bit by a caramel, black tea -esque malt bill.

A bit too malt forward for my tastes. This is really bordering on a hoppy amber ale.

12oz bottle with no date.

Beer pours a brown with red hues. Full finger of off-white head and tons of lacing.

The smell is mostly caramel malts and some earthy, piney hops (not much here, as far as an IPA goes)

The taste is the same as the smell, but amplified. It is a malt bomb and no where near an American or English IPA in terms of hop presence.

It is well carbonated, but too sticky and under-attenuated for the style.

This is a very subpar IPA (would fit better as a brown ale), and doesn't have the dryness that I would expect/desire.
