This IPA is a hazed brown-orange with a creamy off-white head with good strength. Lacing is in a thick and heavy layer on the glass before dissipating to a lighter but still plentiful patching.
This beer has an interesting profile for sure, hops easily detectable enough but certainly resting beneath the malts. The bitterness is akin to rind, a bit of citrus to it, and some of the earthy nature could be hops. Otherwise it's extremely doughy with lots of toffee and a little spiciness to it. What makes it most interesting is the strong tobacco-like note that comes off all the way from beginning to end and incorporates itself into every other aspect. The finish is sort of minty in the back off a tangier mint more forward.
This one is very creamy and smooth as well as being crisp, and it's a solid medium body holding it together. Chewy is the key here, as the doughy nature it shows translates to the feel.
