The appearance is a hazy orange tinted amber in color. A thin wispy ivory white head recedes to a thin film that sticks around for a while. The lacing is a bit truncated, but nice eye candy nonetheless. The aroma is very exotic. It's musty. Smoky. Medicinal, in a good way. And naphthalene-like. (Reminds me of the mothball smell in my Grandma's attic.) Very unique and very nice for an IPA. This beer seems to have a somewhat harsh bitterness, but it's appealing to me. And it's different from your West Coast variety of IPAs (which are great in their own right.) First and foremost, I really do dig the bitterness of this one. After I cut through that, I get to a level of flavors I'm not totally used to in IPAs, but are very nice. For instance, there is a nice minty aspect. And also a coarse pepper-like presence. It's spicy as hell. The malt base is sufficient for a backing, but not real distinctive in any way. Makes no difference. IPAs are all about the hops and this IPA throws out a unique perspective of what can be attained from the almighty flower.
Many thanks to the Almighty Shit for this sample. Thanks for the effort Senior.
