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.

This was good, but not as good as I thought it would be. Nice malt backbone, I do like getting some malt through at the end after the hops come at the beginning and that's what you get here. Nice lace on the glass, yellow brown body, not too impressive looking overall. Nice carbonation, and served at the right temperature. I'd drink this again.
