I poured this bad boy in to a fluted pint and discovered some serious olfactory joy. The beer smells like fresh hops and sweet malt, with the latter coming through almost moreso upon consumption. Unearthly poured almost deep copper...practically redish but still retaining some shiny hues. The head was perfect...a solid one-inch of lacy goodness. The beer is balanced, complete, sweet and bitter...one of the best IPAs have tried 'new' in a long time. If you happen upon one of these, definitely pick it up. I can only imagine how good the oak-aged Unearthly is...

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: amber colour; clear; egg white head, full and average length

Aroma: caramel malt, some citrus hops - orange; something earthy like a damp forest floor

Taste & Mouthfeel: heavy, sweet, caramel and molasses flavour coupled with a thick, syrupy body; finish lends some bitterness, but the malt weighs it out; slightly medicinal in the end - like a light version of Buckleys (pine or spruce); over time begins to grow more balanced on palate, but still too sweet

Overall: a woodsy syrup that would go well with savoury dessert; could be improved with more balance
