A: Dark copper, with brown and red tints. Clear with medium high carbonation. Surprising low head out of the bottle, however left a respectable layer of white foam for the long haul.

S: Wheat crackers, some rye bread and zesty citrus of orange rind. Maybe a little spiciness of lemongrass.

T: Cedar. Walnut. Orange rind. This brew had a nice chewy malt backbone. Nice long and slow pipe tobacco, malt vinegar and balsamic finish.

M: Starts off watery and juicy. Nice and Medium dry through the middle. Dryness lingers but remains mellow. Low acidity for your usual ipa. Really easy going.

O: Great everyday ipa. It's mellow and drinkable. The malt balances the hop nicely making it extremely versatile. The only downside to being a well rounded beverage means that it doesn't stand out in any particular way in the hops department.

Don't know why this beer garners such unenthusiastic reviews. I just had one, bought at random, and it's a delightful surprise. The flavor is citrusy without being over the top, and there is enough hoppiness and malt to be rewarding. True, it doesn't really come across as an IPA, and I think that's part of the problem: what is it, exactly? Honestly, I don't care - it's worth having on hand.
