look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: a deep reddish orange. small off-white head that leaves little to no lacing. fairly hazy

Smell: floral and citrus hops. sweeter malts

Taste: strong hop flavor. florals and citrus. some spiciness. toasty caramel malts. as it gets warmer the spiciness develops into a strong crystal malt presence that takes over in a bad way.

Mouthfeel: pretty strong bitterness and fairly light for the content. strong spicy crystal malt left over

Overall: it was good at first but as it warms it becomes worse and worse.

Poured into McDonald's collector glass (I'm...away from my glassware at the moment). Slightly cloudy amber/orange with a thinner white head that sticks around and leaves nice lacing. Smell is attenuated fruity/herbal hops with hefty crackery malts behind it. Taste is a glorious mix of spicy, herbal and fruity hops with crackery malt with some sweetness. Very complex, alcohol is a little noticeable but it is a stronger IPA. Still incredibly drinkable, excellent beer. Mouthfeel is smooth and medium-full.
