Poured from a bottle into a tulip.
Appearance - a dark rye, amber looking brew. A lot of carbonation that forms a huge, frothy beige head that remains throughout! Decent, but splotchy lacing.
Smell - Earthy, piney, some grass. Biscuit, caramel malt is present.
Taste - Hop forward with exceptional balance; this tastes like a perfect Fall IPA! Hops want to dominate, but malts come in to help settle it down. Hops eventually win out in the mouthfeel.
Feel - grapefruit bitterness, but paired nicely with caramel-like malt!
Overall - Very well done, a lot going on here!

A: lovely coppery red. Off white head with nice retention. Lacing leaves a great sponge patterned lacing.

S: stale, bread, slightly skunky with a hint of pine, honey and floral undertones.

T: Wonderful hop bitterness quickly followed by pine and finished with a bread floral aftertaste.

M: smooth, nicely carbonated.

O: Enjoyable IPA.
