Pours a Amber/orange with minimal head. Nose is of light pine bark and light citrus. A little malty on first taste, a bit like a APA. Light pine and minimal light citrus on the back end. Medium body with a semi wet finish. It was okay

Had on-tap at the Vegas brewpub. Poured into a pint glass.

L: Pours a semi-opaque golden orange color. Two fingers of off-white head. Modest lacing.

S: Evergreens and biscuits.

T/F: Reasonably malty up front... bread and biscuits. The hop profile tends towards the evergreen with faint citrus. Reasonable hop bitterness gives it a drying finish. Not overly resinous... medium carbonation and mouthfeel.

O: A slightly above average IPA. Nothing spectacular, but better than I was expecting. Probably helped that I was thirsty but would definitely have again.

Good copper color on this one, very turbid appearance, 1/8" head. Lacked anything resembling hops, even for an EIPA.

Taste was pretty brutal by IPA standards. Bitterness but no flavor. Burton yeast? Tea? Toffee? It isn't that they used too much malt, its watery, it has me wondering how did it get this color and bitterness without any hop or malt flavor really? This beer was a mess.
