A- It has a nice deep amber color. Well carbonated.
S- I got piney, herbal and earthy, even a little resiny.
T- The malt background is certainly apparent and balances with the long bitter finish.
M- Accurate to the style. Perhaps a little heavier on the palate than desirable.
O- This is not the best IIPA I've had. The bitter finish is overpowering and the malt backbone seems a bit too strong. Good attempt, but they should keep trying.
