Pours a nice copper, burnt orange color. Very light head, leaving a nice lace accross the back of the glass.
Smell: light caramel, rasted malt, very light hop aroma..expected more from a west coast IPA.
Taste: sweet caramel notes up front, alcohol accross the middle of the tounge, and just enough hop the clean off the pallet to take away the sweetness and leave a nice bitter dry finish in the mouth.
Mothfeel: Very full body, can really feel the heat from the alcohol in my mouth, I really like that! not a typical IPA in my mind, very unique without straying to far from the style.
Drinkability: Can see this beer being a problem for me! goes down very smooth and quick could lead to intoxication rather quickly.
Serving type: on-tap
