355ml bottle.

Orange gold with large head. No perceptible lacing. Mild biscuit and citrus aromas. Orange rind dominates, and punches you with a dry bitterness that is slightly off-putting. Dry and finishes very quickly. They should paint a big white stripe up the label of this one as it is the dictionary definition of "middle-of-the-road."

Smell: grapefruit, citrus peel, caramel, bit of funk when swirled in the glass. Taste: starts sweet, orange rind, soft carbonation, hint of melon. Finish: pine resin bitterness takes over and finishes very dry. (bottled 03/20/16)

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.
