3.74/5 rDev -0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
A: Pours a hazy brown with a small amount of off-white head. Some film retains, along with a ring around the edge of the glass, leaving a few splotches of lacing.
S: Sweet fruit and citrus; while the hops are certainly noticeable, the malt backbone seems stronger. I wouldn't expect this to be an IPA based on the smell.
T: Also primarily sweet, with a good balancing hop flavor. Again, though, it's not as hoppy as you'd expect an IPA to be; it's more of an American style strong ale.
M: Medium to full body, medium carbonation.
Overall, quite good, but not really what I'd call an IPA. It's dark and sweet and not that hoppy for a modern American style craft beer. It's tasty though.

Served in a footed glass at the Mikkeller Bar in SF. From notes. Reviewed 9 November 2013.
A: Red and deep with a finger of head. Hazy-auburn.
S: Raw pine cone. Rank citrus.
T/M: This is an interesting beer, mostly because of the wild, crazy-sour yeast. It works. But barely. If this were a railroad gauge, it would be problematic.
O: A beer that is hoppy and fruity and sweet. Sort of a fan.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottle: Poured a hazy burgundy color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of spicy rye notes with some caramel malt, some spices and light citrus hoppy notes. Taste is a kitchen sink type mix of spicy rye notes with some caramel malt and some citrus hops notes. The tangerine juice was hard to detect and didn’t play an important role. Body was full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. There is a lot going on with this beer and probably too much at the end of the day for my taste buds.
