A: Red copper. Off white head that should persist more. Spotty lacing.

S: Sweet toffee, grains, floral and citrus hops. Lots of molasses treacle.

M: A little rough, medium body. A scratchy sensation on the back of the palate. Moderate carbonation. On the drier side, but some malt creaminess is noticeable midway.

T: A whirl of flavors-sweet, bitter, tart. Orange peel, sweet grains, chewy dough, bright tangerine, lemon, bitter herbs, lots of dry hopping- good amount of scratchy pine that's piercing more than resinous in character. Tangerine and some complimentary chives in the end. Would taste nice with some nice sharp cheddar.

Notes are from 5/30

This IPA is copper for sure, clouded in the body and lightening at the edges. A deeply-pocked tinted finger maintains a height of just over one finger. Heavy spotting at the very top gives way to thick, heavy sheeting that's pretty impressive.
The nose is simple but strong, balanced and deep. It puts hops forward, showcasing them in a pungent earthy, floral and leafy bitterness offset by creamy toffee sweetness and that light sweet and pithy balance of orange rind.
Honey and caramel seem to even out that same bitterness, which goes gently and unoffensively briny in the middle and finishes lightly woody with a touch of caramel.
The feel is smooth and creamy with a crisp bite in a medium body.
