Sampled in tulip glass.
Appearance: Pours gold-honey in color with orange highlights with mousse-like, eggshell white head that persists for a few minutes. Head collapses after a few mins to a light ring around edge of glass. Pour is slightly hazy.
Aroma: Light malt sweetness; reminiscent of caramel. Hop aroma is spicy/herbal, but otherwise a little light. Upon warming, grassy and alcohol notes come forward.
Flavor: Caramel sweetness in a firm malt backbone. Not overly bitter at first, but as palate develops a nice crisp bitterness develops. This fades to a lingering bitter finish. Hop profile is much more bright at first sip, and evolves to a more "dark green" or piney/earthy hop flavor.
Mouthfeel: Light mouthfeel. Surprisingly light for a 7% ABV. Light carbonation allows malt to come through a bit more, but leaves a light slickness on the tongue from the residual bitterness.
Overall: Smooth drinker. Light carb is refreshing. Percived bitterness develops as bottle is consumed, but still seems a little light for a IPA.
Serving type: bottle
