look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Bottle into pint glass. Pours a hazy copper color with a off white head that fades fairly fast but leaves a lots of lacing.

Smell: A totally original candied orange hint never encountered before and it's not bad!
A strange and original take, this candied orange peel, with core of caramel aroma and earthy hops.

Taste: Following the smell, this candied orange, citrus, track plays along with the caramel malt core shifting to a pleasant bitterness; the finish is a nice balance of caramel, malt, candied orange and hops bitter. A different IPA.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, almost creamy, (orange creamsicle) with much carbonation

Overall: A highly original, rich and complex IPA in the European style? This is a nice change that I'd like to turn my friends on to. A good finish, and good with orange slice. Good last beer of evening.
A bit sweet.
