Just in at my local beer and wine shop what's up a caramel ruby hue with off white head leaves fine speckled lacing. Aroma has pine and citrus with caramel malt base riding along the way with the hops, flavor is where this beer goes wrong. Straight bitter hop pellets with a sour strange experience I can't get down with, seek better beer and go home. Raw horrible bitterness throughout the finish, I'm dreaming of good beer and this is getting dumped sorry guys I'm not the type of guy who likes a drain pour but this beer is exactly that.

I'm pretty sure I had this beer a little past its prime, so keep that in mind. Hopefully some day I can try a fresher bottle.

It looks thin just from the poor. Some beers are thicker than others...this one seems even thinner than water, if that's possible. While the beer is fairly dark for an IPA, it's originally a clearish brown color with almost no head. As it sits in the glass, what's there in the way of a head dissipates quickly, there's a cloudy haze that you can literally watch fall from the top of the glass to the bottom. The few bubbles that make up the head are very white, but gone in no time leaving the tiniest bit of lace.

Very malty nose. A bit disappointing that you have to search so hard for the hops, but they're there. The hop presence is so subtle that I can't tell the hop type...not even between citrus or savory. Slight piney-ness emerges as the beer warms.

Taste is similar to smell. It's got a bready taste with some earthy pine. Very biscuity from beginning to end.

It's very smooth for an IPA. The watery look described in the appearance is present as it takes the edge off the hoppy bitterness. No carbonation, crisp wet finish. Lingering bitterness, but never over the top. Alcohol is well-hidden.

It's not a great beer, but not bad either. The taste and feel make up for some deficiencies and enhance its drinkability. Would still like to have a fresher bottle.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber color with a moderate off-white head. Nose is really light for me - I can detect some faint whiffs of floral hoppiness, but the smell certainly isn’t strong. Taste is actually too balanced for me - only a very slight bit of bitterness, and not a lot of substance. Meh.
