Little aroma or hop flavor from this one. Tasted and smelled of earth, caramel malts, and little else, really. As for appearance, it's a clear dusky Amber with decent but not great head retention; not particularly unattractive. Mouthfeel is the primary redeeming quality of this beer as it is drinkable and properly carbonated. Overall, this could make a decent amber ale with some recipe tweaks, but not much going on as of right now. Wouldn't buy again.

Good enough IPA, but the aroma and flavor could have been more for the style.
