look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, opaque, copper-orange coloring, with some sedimentation and carbonation throughout, and a low profile, clingy, foamy, white head. Aromas of tart citrus, cut grass, pepper spice, and a bready backbone. Subtle aromas overall. Flavors are tangy citrus forward, with a blend of lemon, lime, and tangerine. The backbone is subtle, bready, and not overly impressive on the overall palate. Roasted notes, with some caramel sweet and rich, and some extremely subtle bitterness. The bitterness builds as you drink, with a resinous tilt to it. Smooth, mid-bodied, with a tangy sweet and bitter aftertaste. The finish is smooth, and slightly dry, with a tart citrus linger. Interesting take on the IPA style.
