This beer is extremely disappointing. Classified as an unfiltered IPA, but could pass as an IPL all day. Poured a dark copper brown and had very little hints of honey. Tasted more like hoppy cough syrup.

Pours a copper brown body with decent head and little lace retention for some lace patches.
Aroma is a mix of citric hops along with touches of sweet honey malt (surprised I even picked it up) along with possible caramel malt as well.
While this is a hoppy brew, naturally, the hops do not overpower beer like I thought they would and this is a genuinely sweet, honeylike IPA that hangs on to both sweetness and a prolific citric hop profile.
This combonation, or the sweetness in general, might irk some people but I really loved it and the over 10% ABV is well-hidden so I was able to really enjoy this beer.
