Pretty good. Aroma's mainly hop with a hint of malt. Appearance is excellent with a huge, long lasting, tan head, lots of lace, and a clear dark garnet color. Taste is similar to nose, good balance between malt sweet, hop bitter, & carbonic tang. Good body. Finish falls fast at first and then tapers very slow at the last. Fairly drinkable beer; wouldn't mind another.

Always if in liquor store, grab this BIPA. Just wonderful, fruity, caramel, toffee, chocolate, bitter, plenty of carbonation, dark dry finish. Thumbs up.
