A - Cloudy caramel amber with a finger of white thick frothy head, medium lacing.
S - Tart orange, sweet roasted caramel malt, a little honey, pear, pine, somewhat astringent.
T - Very very sweet caramel malt, bready, slightly tart, orange, a little nutty, very sweet and kinda singular in forms.
M - Clingy sweet chewy bleh.
O - Big disappointment for me, overly sweet, not enough balance with the hops.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 750ml caged & corked bottle into an imperial pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick but spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, honey, citrus and a good amount of hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of caramel, honey and citrus. Then a hearty malt character comes in. The hops presence is a bit subdued for the style but it’s complementary and provides a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a very solid beer to drink for a long time if you want an IPA with less of an edge than most.

11.2 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a slightly hazy pale orange color with some vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Some citrus fruitiness, pungent, floral, toasted, and caramel malts.

Taste: Herbal, citrus, chewy toasted malts, and sweet caramel to balance things out. Mild tingly bitterness in the rear.

Mouthfeel: A bit smooth, chewy, light to medium bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: For an EIPA, this is probably the best one that I have had so far. Hoppy, herbal, malty, and delicious.
