Pours a smaller fizzy slight creamy 1/2 finger head that fades semi slowly at least, decent lacing, a slight hazy amber orange-red color.
Nose is like a basic IPA, a mild earthiness, some orange peel and notes of citrus, a bit piney, mild resinous like notes, some caramel malts.
Taste starts with caramel malts, a toasty reddish malt and mild sweetness, with a little candy syrup flavor. Then hops, fair bitterness, spicy earthy hops with some pine, hint of orange rind bitterness, and a little candied hop note. Finish is drier at least, fairly bitter and gets more bitter as it dries, bit of a spicy hop note, little pine, little rind, and bit of that caramel malt lingering.
Mouth is med bod, mild syrupy note, decent fluffy carb.
Overall OK, nothing great, at least nothing really wrong either, a bit too much on the caramel candy malts, and hops are not my fav for an IPA, although if I had this 7-8 years ago I may have liked it a lot more.
