From 2d2despuma. In Tekug glass. After dinner, extracting beer labels. All I expect in an IPA: great smell and tasty bitterness not overwhelming and without unpleasant fruity profile

The good amount of hops is overshadowed by sweet malt. West Coast IPA lovers should likely avoid.

Appearance - This beer has an epic "psychedelic" label and "may the beer be with you" stamped on the back of the cap lol, It pours a dark semi hazy copper color with a finger of white foamy head that fades quick leaving a thick film

Aroma - Grapefruit, orange peel, some lemon zest, some pine, earthyness, toffee and caramel malts.

Flavor - At first you get grapefruit, orange peel and lemon followed quickly by a swift pine bitterness, some caramel and toffee notes a little brown sugar then the sweetness dissapears and the beer finishes really bitter.

Feel -this beer has a nice medium body, with some lighly prickly carbonation, finishes bitter. not bad

Overall - This is a decent IPA, design wise I love the bottle and the beer itself is pretty good. I have a personal preference for more citrusy ipas and the pine takes over in this one. but overall its one of the better pine IPA's ive tried.
