4.04/5  rDev +5.5%

Appearance - Pours copper in color, huge off white head and leaves monstrous lacing! The sediment is a nice touch!
Smell - Not bad, but not great. Floral, piney notes come through towards the end of the glass.
Taste - A good tasting IPA, but several out there are better.
Feel - Good hop bitterness and decent carbonation.
Overall - Fantastic for the price point ($6.99)/6 pack) and wonderful to look at! Plenty IPA's that I would prefer, however.

12 FLUID OUNCE bottle
Served in a tulip glass

L - It is amber with golden highlights. There is suspended yeast in it. It is topped with three inches of off-white head.

S - I get a medicinal smell with some earthy and citrus aromas.

T - The taste is much the same. It is unique.

F - Medium

O - This is a weird IPA. I am glad I tried it for the flavor experience. It is unlike any IPA I have had before. It is medicinal and earthy with a little citrus and pine. It has left me kind of speechless.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, herbal hop, and slight nail polish remover aromas. Taste is much the same with pine, herbal hop, and slight floral flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop and floral bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with an odd nail polish remover aroma, but the flavors are solid.

Serving type: bottle.

When fresh, this stuff kicks butt. If after three months, my recommendation, don't drink.
Okay, well here's the rest.
I poured this into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice looking hazy amber to orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light simple speckled lacing.
The smell had a nice sweet spicy citrus hops with a light burnt - ness to the hops.
The taste was mainly sweet with a crafted spicy to roasty / is that burnt hops?
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the palate. It does have a decent sessionability about it.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good sessionable AIPA that I could have again.
