Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Great looking brew, a deep and crystal clear copper orange body, just real impressive color. Head manages an off tan to yellow color with a soaped retention and island cap. Pours a big four fingers, but settles quite normally and falls easily with an island clumpy center.

Real nice nose. Hop front has a smoke weedy, and woody splintery pine action. Some juiced tropical qualities matches a bit, but much of this earthy quality seems to dominate. Dank a bit here but with good spice, I really like this angle, may not be for everybody.

Big juicy body on the palate, with some good honey coating and not too thick. Just a great oily feel to make the hops coat all over. Hop action brings woody and smokey quality. Hints of smoke pine and earth seem to come out, with a very minimal bitterness, and good caramel light toffee crispness. Mouthfeel has a little tip of the tongue carbonation to be playful, but disappears to make the flavors come out on their own.

A real nice IPA take, not a fruit forward, not a quite dank buster, but a real unique one that has a distinct hard to describe and inviting character. Really dig this beer, but it may not be everyone's cup of tea.
