Poured into a tulip glass.

A: Half a finger of rapidly vanishing head. Coppery orange body.

S; Alcohol. Fruit. Biscuit.

T: Meh. For a beer that claims to have 6 hops, this one really doesn't have much hop action going on.

M: Thin, slick, light-bodied.

O: I would not get this again.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle poured into a teku glass

A -hazy bright copper with minimal creamy head.

S - Fairly strong carmel scent with hints of grapefuit and pine.

T - Very robust sweet carmel taste with quite a bit of hops. The floral taste is very subtle but pleasant. For me, it helps subdue the pine taste.

M -Slightly heavy, but smooth and medium bodied. Has a somewhat dry finish with minimal carbonation. Smooth and creamy, medium bodied. Low carbonation, dry finish.

O - Overall, a decent IPA. Was expecting a little more hops given the six hops used. Would definitely try it again and recommend to any fans of IPAs.

Pours a clear medium copper with a foamy half inch cream head that dissipates somewhat quickly, leaving minimal lacing.

Pine, resin, grapefruit, and toasted caramel malt form the initial aroma. Onion and soapy floral hops emerge.

Fruity hops are initially a surprising flavor mid palate. Citrus pith begins the profile, which turns bitter and resinous fairly quickly. There's substantial bready, cloyingly sweet, toasted caramel malt forming the backbone. But the fruity character is intriguing and difficult to describe.

Body is a tad syrupy, fairly full, with low carbonation, significant alcohol warmth, and a fair bit of astringency at the finish.

Cloyingly sweet at the backbone and eventually becomes more bitter than I prefer. Alcohol is a bit overwhelming. Hop flavor is somewhat odd.
