look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Bottle purchased from Beers of the World in Henrietta, NY.

Pours a copper amber color, with a half inch head, and a little bit of lacing down the glass.

Smells like sweet caramel malt, with some pine and a bit of grapefruit.

This one of the maltier IPAs I've had, to its detriment. Fairly astringent bitterness, plus sweet syrupy malt character. Tastes stronger than the ABV suggests, which is weird. Just doesn't work. The hop flavor is more in-line with pine-sol.

Medium bodied, syrupy, rough mouthfeel. Not all that drinkable.

Maybe I need a fresher bottle of this, but it just doesn't quite work for me.

The beer comes in a dark reddish copper.

The aroma has toasty malts, a bit of citrus, and pine.

The flavor follows with a bit of grapefruit, but lots of earthy pine notes. The finish is quite bitter of earthy, resin, and pine. The beer almost tastes like a lager with its balance of malts. There's a lot of caramel and toasted breadiness behind this beer.

There's a generous medium mouthfeel.

A beer with a good amount of a flavor for its ABV. It was described to me as a "copper" ale. Not your traditional IPA if that's what you're looking for.
