The head is two fingers' worth of weighty pale orange-tinted cream settled atop a brassy clouded medium orange sort of brew. The head falls very slowly and never much, sticking some patching and thick rings that develop to torn sheeting as the beer falls.
Pith, weed and some sourdough make up the aroma, along with flashes of something like dry kibble. It's not bad, but it's unusual.
This IPA drops the pretense of balance for hops, though it's not a hop assault. The hops do overshadow the malts to the point of making their presence negligible. The hop profile itself is, again, unusual, as citrus pith, weed, stem, not-quite-smoky grains, tobacco, cheesecloth, and earth hit the palate. It's hoppy, though not most peoples' preferred hop profile, and it works for me as a hop fix and a well constructed brew.
The body just makes medium, interestingly, and it's crisp with a certain smooth softness. It leans on the dry side, though a sort of juiciness keeps it even. It does thin out at the very end of the sip, where a sort of huskiness kicks in.

Appearance: This IPA pours a darker golden color and is topped with ½” of white colored head.
Smell: Hops dominate the smell but there is malt in the background.
Taste: The flavor of this beer is hops and that sticky resin that all Hopheads love.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and a little sticky would be the best way to describe this beer.

I do now consider myself a fan of this brewery. They produce good stuff. This one is slightly misclassified as it is a borderline light american IPA.

The odd part of this one is that although it is canned, it is funky looking, but it is supposed to be that way. The aroma is good but a little weak. Hoppy, malty and funky.

The taste is outstanding. Hippy, bitter, not clean. It has loads of character. The aftertaste is bitter, malty, and funky. It's a little nasty, but interesting.

Recommended, and note I will now try their on blind faith.
