Surprised to find out I had not reviewed this yet. ....l

12 oz. Bottle 9/17/17 opened on 10/18/17

This appearance harkens back to the old days of darker amber hued ipa's. This is not your lighter, cloudy NE ipa....just a clear amber glow. The foam cap is clumpy and sparse, bubbly with solid rings on the edge.

The aroma has a dark, harvest wheat malt thing happening, under the obvious collection of pine tree sap, earthy grains and tropical, citric and tangy hops aroma's.

The hops are a tough, earthy and bitter effect, tangy and sour fruits, grapefruit mostly dominate the hop side. Amber style malts seem almost roasty and earthy. Acorns, dark wheat, dried leaves and serious earth tones prevail. A heavy, medium to full body and very crisp.

West coast style ipa all the way, big bitter and raunchy hops with a serious side of malty balance. Very healthy and robust, if not too bitter hop experience.

Must have gotten a less than perfect beer. It was cloudy upon pouring and didn't ever clear. After reading the other reviews, I'll give it another try.

Poured from 12-ounce bottle into a tulip glass. One of the prettiest pours I've seen: a thick, long-lasting head of white foam atop a deep, clear, copper-colored body, with lots of sticky lacing Strong malt presence, with quite a bit of sweetness to balance out the hop bitterness. Medium mouthfeel, with a finish on the dry side and a touch of lasting bitterness and alcohol burn. Overall, a very good beer.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass

L: Pours a clear gold/copper, with a 1-finger head that dissipates quickly, and only minimal lacing.

S: Mix of citrus hops, malt and bread. Not overly strong, but decent.

T/F: Citrus hops upfront, with the malt and bread following. A little bite at the end, but pretty well balanced. The alcohol is pretty well hidden, so it might sneak up on you.

O: Very solid IPA. Not spectacular, but definitely one I will go back to.

DATE: September 10, 2017... OCCASION: week one of football continues...Browns lose another opener.... GLASSWARE: Maudite snifter... pours a robust, prototypical amber body, with ample effervescence building a single-finger head that thickly coats the glass in white.... the lacing is irregular but tangible... caramel and grapefruit meet at the first whiff... light resin, dank basement, and doughy malts fight for air time... all in all, suggestive of balance... the first sip is medium-bodied, stocky, blunted at the teeth and rounded at the throat... deceptively hides its strength in a crunchy, chewy mouthfeel... the caramel almost usurps the resin, but enough citric fruits--grapefruit, most prominently--with lemon and apple also late... this beer is a sipper disguised as an easy-drinking IPA...

12oz bottled on 7/1/17 consumed 8/23/17

I regret finally rating this beer while drinking an older bottle. I've had fresher than this before - it was a bit brighter and hoppier.
That being said, this beer is still delicious. Has an amazing fluffly off-white head that stands like a rocky landscape and then laces like a dream along the glass.
The flavor is composed of orange pithiness, tiny hints of grapefruit and some lemon. The malts are carmelly, sweet, and biscuity.
Finishes low to medium dry.

This is a great brew, I will make sure to update this review with a fresher bottle and update the hop/malt balance and character.
