Poured from bottle into tulip glass

Appearance – Pours a brown color with some red highlights shining through. Upon pouring there is a big and thick off white head. The head had wonderful retention but eventually faded to give a very nice amount of lacing. Overall quite an impressive looking brew.

Smell – The smell was a nice blend of roasted malt and hop. The roasted aromas are big brown bread. The hop aroma is mainly composed of a sweet lemon aroma, almost hard lemon candy like with some other hop aromas of grapefruit as well. Overall the two blend very well together.

Taste – The taste begins with a nice smooth and roasty malt flavor. Big in chocolate and roasted malt that begin the taste are quickly meet by some of the hop flavors that were in the nose. Right after the initial roastiness, a strong grapefruit hop bitter meets the tongue. At first the roasty and bitter seem to battle out, with a not so smooth transition, but quickly they seem to settle their dispute to meld very well together; creating a roasty and creamy bitterness. A t this time a very light yet persistent alcohol flavor comes to the tongue. All these flavors last to the end where some pine hop tastes as well as a light amount of floral hop are also detected, mixing to leave a pleasant smooth (from the roasty malt) yet bitey (from the hop) flavor on the tongue.

Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is creamy and smooth with the carbonation level being rather average but very fitting for the roasty flavors of the brew. The boozy flavor in the taste furthermore produces a nice warming flavor on the tongue. Overall the Mouthfeel is quite nice.

Overall – A tasty IPA with a wonderful roasty and hoppy flavor. It is relaxing with its slight alcohol booziness and roasty flavors, yet exciting at the same time due to its nice hop presence. Quite a good brew for either or.
