12oz bottle poured into Spiegelau IPA glass. Pours a slightly foggy golden copper color (as advertised) with adequate head and resilient lacing. Pine in the scent. Slight texture to the feel. Throughout the taste there is some malt sweetness to balance the hop bitterness. Well-balanced. Very drinkable. (8.5)

Pours a medium-deep golden in color with a slightly haze in the body. A small and frothy head forms and retains pretty well with decent lacing. The scent and initial tastes follow the same profile of moderately aggressive and piney hops flavor. After the hops bitterness there is a touch a malty sweetness before the hops kick back in. The bitter hops ride out the rest of the taste and linger on the tongue for a good while. This is an easy drinking IPA and is smooth on the palate and not overly bitter for its body weight.

Overall, this is a very, very solid IPA. This will satisfy the hop head without destroying the palate with said hops. Really delicious.

Maybe I got a bad bottle? Muted aroma reminiscent of an AAL, with an odd flavor profile that tastes like a stale IPA. Not even 2 months old...disappointing.
