Odd to say about an IPA but there is a nice solid caramel backbone on this beer reminiscent of an 80-shilling ale. On top of the obvious caramel, there are light fruit esters blanketed with a faint earthiness. Its hard to ignore the obvious malt character in the aroma of this beer. It doesn't smell like a pale ale, but it's a very good aroma, so I give it high marks.
To the eye, The Bitter End is a clear dark orange color with a beautiful stream of carbonation bubbles rising to the top. The head is a tan color, but doesn't last long and falls quickly into the beer. Decent lacing too, Its a pretty beer.
Steady bitterness throughout, despite what you think is coming from the aroma, it's bitter. Flavors are a bit of a muddled variety of peach, nectarine, apricot, and caramel. It's an interesting beer, it's not a hop-forward pale ale which I think is what I've come to expect these days. It's slick in texture with low carbonation and a medium body. It's a good beer, just not what I was expecting.

2.98/5 rDev -20.5%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3
Appearance: Pours amber with about one finger of foam,light beige that does not retain and leaves minimal lacing. Clear with decent carbonation showing.
Aroma: Light citrus hop aroma but I did not detect much anything else.
Taste: A mild citrusy hop flavor but not big like a lot of APA's. Overall this beer is pretty mild. Crisp and clean, the hops do linger.
Mouth Feel: Smooth and crisp with a light to medium body. Finishes dry.
Overall: Not a bad beer but I was hoping for a little more out of it. Certainly would drink it again.
