2.14/5  rDev -42.2%

Pours a slightly hazy dark golden copper color with apricot colored edges and a two finger frothy, off-white head that very slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Very good retention, taking a while to settle and leaving streaks of soapy lacing in its path.

The aroma of this beer is pretty bland with a floral, perfume-like hop presence that's countered by a sweet caramel malt backbone. Somewhat earthy and resinous with dirt/soil-like quality along with grass and pine needle but the hop presence in the nose is surprisingly weak. Sweet malt character that's reminiscent of crystal and English malts giving off some caramel, toffee, toast and roasted nut.

On the fuller end of medium body with earthy hop bitterness that lingers over the sweet malt backbone into an astringent metallic finish. This beer starts off okay reminding me of an English bitter with some pine needle, grass and earthy soil countered by a sweet malt backbone but there's a really unpleasant lingering chemical flavor that comes in mid-palate which continues long after the finish. Some syrupy caramel sweetness with toffee and hazelnut followed by metallic adjunct like sweetness that kind of ruins things for me. The description of this beer is vague but whatever it is, they shouldn't have "dusted it off" in my opinion.

The website says American IPA,but man this has a big bready malt profile like an APA or American ESB,anyways a moot point.Pours into an imperial pint glass a glear lighter amber shade with a thinner lacey white head atop.Earthy and mild leafy hops mixed with toasted bread in the aromas,some caramel and fruitiness comes thru as well.Fresh bread dough on the palate with light toast,caramel lends sweetness,the hops are earthy and leafy in the finish,a German noble hop profile along with maybe some Chinooks?I don't know.I really like this beer it reminds me of some of the beers brewed around PA. that I drank alot of while I lived in Norristown 2002-2004 with it's breadiness and earthy hop profiles.Like an American ESB in my humble opinion.

On tap at the 2014 Secret Stash Bash (Atlanta).

Aroma of an IPA but has the milder flavor of an APA. Excellent balance.
Very soft in the mouth and mild bitterness given the pungent level of hops in the nose. Sessionable.

Feel: Dry and crisp. Near medium body lively carbonation.
