Aroma is resiny and piney, with a caramel malt sweetness and soft citrus.

Flavor reveals a fairly sweet caramel malt backbone initially, becoming toasted and less sweet mid palate, and fading to resiny, moderately bitter hops in the finish. There's a bit of muddled fruit at the beginning, but this is definitely more about the bittering hops. I like the malt character, but not my kind of ipa.

22 oz bottle, best by 01/14/2015 so cutting it close on freshness, but very well balanced between malty and hoppy.

Not much as far as aroma. The flavor profile is malt forward with strong toffee notes, although the hops do not take a background, showing some punch throughout. A good, if a little different AIPA that has fresh hops in it.

Pours a copper color with a white head. Lace is left down the inner side of the glass. The aroma is hoppy, with grapefruit and citrus notes lofting above malt sweetness. The flavor is balanced between sweet malt and the biting, bitter hop. Some citrus and pine qualities make for an overall nice IPA experience. Pretty damn solid beer here.
