Hazey bronze color, about two fingers thick foam that recedes to a thick film. Bubbling is pretty good and the film leaves a little lacing after each sip.
Faintly toasted orange peel hop aromas mix with toasted caramel and biscuit malts. classic aroma.
Mineraly orange peel hops upfront and dissipates in its intensity as the beer flows over the tongue. The finish is dominantly bitter though. The malt is a subbued bread crust, water crackers, and biscuits. Dominant bitterness overall.
The mouthfeel is a little chalky and dry. But minus is alcohol percentage, the flavor is sessionable for sure.

A: Pours a clear amber with a creamy, thin off-white head.
S: Delicate aromas of biscuit, caramel, cream, and crackers are met by scents of herbs, grass, lemon rind, lime zest, kumquats, bitter orange, pine, spruce, and cedar.
T: Notes of lemon rind, lime zest, bitter orange, kumquats, pungent herbs, grass, pine, spruce, cedar, and minerals are subtly supported by cream, cracker, biscuit, and caramel notes. The finish is shorter than expected, displaying a clear balance of caramel, biscuit, cracker, cedar, herb, and bitter citrus flavors.
M: On the heavier side of medium, oddly dry, and more than a bit chalky in the mouth. Carbonation is incredibly forceful and never really seems to calm no matter how long the beer is held in the mouth. A bit of a challenge to polish off this bottle.
O: This is an interesting IPA, but I am not sure I can be moved to call it a good example of the style. It kind of straddles the fence between English and American versions of the style, and though it is not bad, it does not really capture the best aspects of either.
