I poured this one from a 12 oz. can into a 12 oz. glass. The generous head sticks out of the top of the glass but does dissipate rather quickly. There is some moderate lacing on the side of the glass. The beer presents a few large bubbles. The color is orange with a slight haziness. It looks very much like real honey. Can I spread this beer on my toast? But wait. This IPA already has a heavy bread character. I am reminded of the fresh Country white bread that my grandmother used to make. The beer has slight buttery qualities. There is also a flavor of marmalade and oat. This IPA is really well balanced. The malts stand out with exemplary character and are backed by a good dash of both spicy and citric hops. This is a very unusual beverage that is much easier to drink than your average pine bush flavored IPA. I really enjoy this full bodied beer which dissolves slowly in my mouth and finished with a slightly delicious caramel and orange aftertaste. It taste like breakfast in my mouth. An excellent beer which may be appreciate by some IPA drinkers who are afraid of hops. My only criticism would be that the malts overpower the hop aromas (perhaps there isn't much there). A good solid beer.

A delicious American IPA with a plethora of citrusy hop character, backed by malty richness to support. Delicious with fruity and caramel undertones, this beer puts the hop plant on display.

Pouring a mildly hazy light copper, light orange color, the beer's carbonation builds a frothy off-white head with tremendous staying power and intricate patterns of lace. A sturdy and strong look overall.

Citrusy aromas abound: chocked full of red and white grapefruit, orange zest and tangerine, pineapple, herbal notes, pine and resin... There's a lot going on with the hop character, to the point where any one characteristic in indistinguishable from the next. Fortified malt aromas come alive with a backbone of caramel and bread crust in a stronger than expected portrayal.

Citrusy flavors also dominate taste, but not without an early rebuttal of malt richness, sweetness, and overlay bready, crusty character with cashew-like nuttiness. But then the citrusy flavors quickly build with everything from citrus pulp and pith to earthy grasses and herbs, with a sprucey, resiny flavor that deliver a consistent fade to bitterness in finish with a weakening malty front. A delicious beer throughout.

Medium full in body, the combination of ample carbonation with malty richness make for a very creamy upstart. But the hoppy dryness and building alcohol warmth transition nicely into a malty-dry and fleeting sweetness in finish. Only a linger of crust and citrus bitterness last into the next sip. A very appetizing and rewarding beer with its effortless in drinkability and overall hop complexity.
