Pours a clear copper with a frothy half inch cream head that dissipates somewhat quickly, leaving spotty lacing.
Resin, skunky hops, muted grapefruit, and fresh cut grass form the initial aroma. Onion and pine add complexity to the bready caramel malt backbone.
Flavor is initially very malty, becoming resiny and moderately bitter mid palate. Minerally hops are present throughout, with hints of muted citrus.
Body is moderate, with moderate carbonation and slight alcohol warmth. There's a bit of astringency present.
Minerally and bitter, the flavoring hops lack somewhat in citrus character. Fairly bready and earthy, but not really enough complexity to merit a better score.

Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into a pinot noir wine glass. Bottled on 02/10/14 on bottle neck. Single purchased at Total Wine (Norwalk, CT) for $1.99.
A: Crystal clear orange-amber with 1-finger of nearly white, small-bubbled head with good retention and plenty of lacing all over the glass.
S: Mosaic-y hops aroma with a lot of berry and melon aromas mingling with some floral and lemon-lime citrus. Maltiness is crackery and bready. No yeast or alcohol component. Great nose overall.
T: Unfortunately the flavor doesn't measure up to the nose with the maltiness falling flat, flabby in nature, which doesn't mesh too well with the floral and minty soap-like hoppiness. No alcohol or yeast esters though. Something happened with the combination of caramel malts and hops which really didn't work. Not horrible, but the soapy aftertaste is a little astringent and a little tough.
M: Drinks a little more like an amped-up APA than an IPA with a smaller body than it should have and softer carbonation.
O: Pretty disappointing beer from Weyerbacher overall -- there is a recipe or fermentation problem with this beer, as it has a soapy quality -- probably mor eint he hops-malt combination that is not working.
