On draft, pours a very clear copper orange color. A very tho layer of head sits on the glass, lacing as the beer disappears.

The nose is spice, earthy hops, chives, not much malt. The flavor is earthy hops, with a malt backbone. A little cotton candy, spice, potato. This is old school ipa, but not a great interpretation. Unfortunately, my preferences have changed and this doesn't stand out like I am sure it did 10 years ago.

A. Average poor ½ inch of gold/white head that dissipates to lace around the rim. Little carbonation from bottom of glass. Orange in color.
S. Hops, yeast, and alcohol is evident.
T. Taste like it smells but with a metallic taste.
M. The hops bites back a little, slightly dry.
O. Taste like an English IPA. Average buzz for 6.8%. The label is awesome.
