Extremely bitter to the point of it being spoiled.
Different batch proved this to be a much better beer then previously experienced.

I have mixed feelings about this one. It started so promising. It poured a beautiful combination of light copper, amber and dark golden. A modest head dissipates into a thin lace that retains throughout. The aroma was my favorite aspect. It smelled of malts, sugar and tropical fruits. I was excited to taste this one, however, the aroma and taste did not really correspond. Althought there is a slight bready, fruity and malty backbone, the intense hops finish is overpowering. The bitterness does not seem to render this a very balanced drink. The feel is good however; a stinging carbonation, medium body. This is a drinkable beer that I would not mind having again, but overall not my favorite.

A: [4.50] Beer is a dark honey color. It has a nice full finger of head. The head is white (with maybe and orange tinge). I have to say this looks great in the glass. The beer leaves nice lacing on the glass. The ABV is listed at 8.3%. It has a best by date of tomorrow!

S: [4.00] Citrus and pine scents. Some dank and earthy tones in there too.

T: [4.25] Mellow hop presence (maybe tamed by the duration in the bottle). Muted citrus hop notes. There is a solid malt mid-palate. Then a slight hop bittering at the end.

M: [3.75] Good carbonation and mouthfeel. Slightly dry finish - but appropriate for the style.

O: [4.00] This is a solid IPA. It doesn't try to kill you with bitterness - but still highlights nice hop flavor with a good balance of malts. The beer looks nice in the glass. All around a really solid IPA. Will drink again.
