Even with a small pour there is a nice one finger head. Really beautiful, rich copper/orange color. Lots of webby lacing. Very attractive.

Wonderful caramel malt notes up front, slightly bready. The hops don't stand out in the nose. What's there is crisp and piney. The sweetness of this brew dominates the nose.

Wow the malts in this are outstanding. Bready, and caramel sweet. The hops finish the swallow with mostly bitter notes. Just a tad of astringency on the finish.

Mouth is creamy with soft and large carbonation. This is a thick brew which could be expected at 10.4%.

This is really a great beer. It's not as hoppy as you might expect for an ipa but its hoppy enough and very malty. I wouldn't mind having another one in the fridge.
