Poured an attractive amber color with frothy white head and beautiful hoppy aroma of Cascade hops. Mouthfeel was perfect. Flavor was hoppy along with rich caramel flavors. This was a nice hoppy IPA that was smooth and easy drinking. Wish I could get this on a regular basis. Thanks to my friend Gary in Duluth, MN for this one.

look: 2.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass.

2.5 A: Lightly hazed medium orange color. One finger of frothy/foamy off-white head. Retention is lacking for an IPA and no lacing is left.

4.5 S: This is super malty without being a big, syruppy type DIPA. Tons of caramel and even some toffee and toastiness. Floral and citrusy hops. Quite nice.

3.5 T: The malty complexity is still there, but it lacks depth in the taste. The caramel, toffee, and toastiness are closer to a tease than a focus. Floral and herbal hop flavor with the slightest citrusy tinge. Despite my complaints, it's not bad.

3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. I wish this had a bit more body and could use some more creaminess as well.

3.5 D: Decent beer that would be awesome if it tasted like it smelled.

Appearance is dark amber or dark copper. Head is small.
Odor is fruity and floral.
Taste is sum what complex. Has malty sweetness and caramel in the middle but ends with hops. Nice build from beginning to end.
Mouth feel is pretty smooth. Carbonation is light.
