Pours an orange-copper colour. Slight haze. Good, persistent ivory head.
Strong malt profile with lots of sweetness coming through the aroma. Backed up by a bit of piney hops but they aren't at the forefront here.
Sweet start with some caramel sweetness. The mid palate moves into a slightly unbalanced bitterness which lingers on. Hop character is pretty much limited to bitterness with next to no hop flavour coming through. A touch of fruitiness is present which plays well with the slightly toasty butterscotch malt character.
Medium body and moderate carbonation team well with this beer. Dry-ish finish.
A decent American IPA but lacking in the hop flavour that drives this style. Bitterness isn't enough to make a good beer.
