I did not enjoy this beer at all. The bitterness is incredibly unpleasant, and contributes to a horrible flavor. I got a four pack, would not buy it again. I ended up giving the last one away because the beer was so bad...

Darker amber color with a thick beige two finger head with good retention and leaving laces.
Somewhat malty aroma with notes of bread, mild grapefruit and grass, and caramels. I was expecting it to be more intense and citrusy.
Flavor with predominant notes of caramel malt, lots of spices and herbal and earthy hops, pineapple foam from juice, citrusy more toward peel rather than fruit, pine and tea leaves. Dry aftertaste with a long lasting bitterness.
Medium towards full body with mild carbonation. Alcohol of 8% is well hidden.
A bitter IPA on a maltier body, this felt more of a DIPA to me. I hope had more of the citrus character of their APA, which is a reference to me. That said it is still well crafted.
