Pours a medium coppery amber with a half finger, slightly off-white head that dissipates to patches and a ring around the glass. Odd aroma of caramel malt, light grassy hops and a peculiar estery component like an overripe tropical fruit. Flavor is thin caramel malt with fairly intense piney and resinous hops, but mostly as the bittering component without herbal flavors. Long, lingering astringent hop bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Possibly the least malt support for an aggressively hopped beer I've experienced. The color and body suggest that the malt is sufficient, but it does not support the hop flavor much at all. Hops too astringent and may have been adequate with some more malt flavors to balance them out. There are actully some interesting hop flavor interactions in the finish. I wanted to like this, but it's not a well made IPA. Satisfied to finish the bottle, but I'm not going to seek this out again. I'll give this small local brewery another chance, but hope for a better rendition of the next style.
