This pours a hazy, golden amber color with a slight beige head. The aroma is bitter and slightly malty. The taste is bitter yet has a decent amount of malts and floral tones. A decent brew the delivers with bitterness but still is not what you expect from an IPA. Finishes with a very dry after taste.

Poured dark red-brown from a 12 oz bottle. Excellent, creamy tan head. Great retention.

Flavor: Orange peel, other citrus and some floral hop notes. Strong. High bitterness.

Feel: Full bodied with perfect , soft carbonation.

O: while partly tamed by a larger and darker malt load, this IPA has plenty of hop power to satisfy hop heads.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a murky dark honey orange with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Tiny chunks of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and dank herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and grapefruit juice flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a decent smell but better hop qualities in the taste in my opinion.

A: cloudy; burnt orange in color; less than 1 finger white head that receded to a thin film; some lacing, but not much;

S: caramel malt;

T: not much flavor; some muted caramel malt through mid-palate when moderate bitterness kicks in; bitter finish, but not a pleasant bitter;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: mild; nothing to get excited about, but not bad in any way;
