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.
