I was not able to discern any aroma from this draft pour. It had decent head, but just no scent whatsoever. Taste was definitely more malty than hoppy, but the balance was done well enough where you could get both. But definitely more malty than I like my IPA's. Feel was medium-bodied and easy drinking. Overall, a drinkable beer with decent flavor.

From 22 oz bomber to tulip glass

An interesting IIPA...not sure I've come across one quite like it. Definitely more malty than the examples from So Cal, but it doesn't have that cloying cling that many huge IPA's impart between sips. The malt-backbone is big, but it's in-line with the floral hops, and forms a perfect caramel flavor.
