3.44/5 rDev -3.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Poured from can to imperial pint
A- pours a clear and deep amber color with some ruby hue, two-finger creamy off-white head retains long after the pour, leaving a nice presentation
S- sweet bready malt with some caramel aromas, herbal & earthy hops with some woodsy notes
T- caramel malty sweetness with a big nutty backbone, bready, herbal and fruity hops on a dry finish
M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel and a smooth finish
O- this is so malty that it drinks like an amber ale, rather than an ipa. Still very drinkable though

3.73/5 rDev +4.8%

A: Pours a relatively clear medium copper in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass rather quickly and a faint amount of amber highlights. The beer has a two finger tall foamy light beige head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of caramel malts with some brown sugar sweetness and moderate aromas of citrus/grapefruit pith + pine hops.
T: Upfront there are moderate to strong flavors of caramel malts with light to moderate amounts of caramel, toffee, and brown sugar sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of citrus/grapefruit pith and pine/resin hops which impart a moderate amount of lingering bitterness.
M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness in the finish.
O: Maybe more of a hoppy amber/red ale than a traditional IPA but this one is pretty good - nice combination of hop flavors that are well balanced by the sweetness of the malts. I would get this one again.
