From a 355 ml bottle into a wine glass.

A-The beer is on the darker side of an IPA (or IIPA, in this case). The color is a murky honey and there are some serious floaters visible in the beer. The head is thin and tan. It fades to film pretty quickly, but leaves some nice waves of lacing on the glass.

S-The aroma is towards the malty end of the IIPA spectrum with a good amount of caramel and sweetness to balance the citrus twang, pine, resin, and dank, earthy hops. The bitterness is medium to high and the alcohol warmth is apparent but not over-the-top.

T-The taste tracks the smell pretty closely. There is a caramel and honey sweetness that balances a serious hop punch of citrus (orange, mostly), resin, pine, pepper, and mint. The beer is more earthy than some, but it isn't "dank" compared to many beers in this category and a warming alcohol flavor lightens it up.

M-The feel is medium to full in body with a moderate amount of carbonation and a slightly sticky finish.

O-This is a pretty good beer. The balance between the hops and malts will appeal to those who like their IIPAs with more than just hop juiciness. The feel is also on the heavy side, so the beer drinks a little more full than many IIPAs. I don't think this ranks above numerous other IIPAs, but it I would drink it again.

This IPA does not have that normal bite, but an almost softer taste the whole way through
