Poured from 12oz bottle.
A- Pours a semi-hazy golden orange brownish color. Half finger white head comes and goes quickly. Very light streaky lacing left on the glass.
S- Sweet caramel malts come and hit me in the face with this beer at first. I hope it's more hop forward in the tasting than in the aroma. A light orange citrus hop in the backing. A lightly offensive alcohol lingers in the very ending of the nose.
T- A light water like flavor is actually the first thing I taste. This gets covered quickly with a sweet caramel malt. Some light citrus hops in the backing finish this beer up along with a touch of alcohol.
M- Light medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is very light for the style and the beer in general. Sweet malts left on the palate along with some light alcohol in the aftertaste. Medium drying on the palate from the alcohol. Flavors were not balanced nor blended well. Not really crisp or clean tasting at all.
D- Did I drink this? Yes. Did I like it? I really can't say for sure. I wouldn't buy a sixer of it...that's for sure. It didn't set with me for the style but it wasn't that bad of a beer. Maybe if they labeled it as an amber ale I would have given it a better score.

The appearance of this IPA is actually quite stunning in a highly carbonated, cheap sort of way. The head was a tower of ivory foam with a dense cap. The body was a glowing, brassy color of copper but it was obscured by a torrent of tiny bubbles that clung to the glass.
The nose presents a strong malt base with caramel, tea leaves and barley. The hop scent is old world floral with hints of lemon, pine and grapefruit.
The flavor matches the scent nearly identically. Strong malt base, maybe tea leaf, with a floral, pine, tinges of lemon and a pithy grapefruit.
The feel is dry but it has almost no carbonated bite, despite the appearance.
Very simple IPA with stronger Pale Ale qualities than hop profile.
