Looks like a dingy, pale-ish ice tea with a less than enthused white head that ends up as a fizzy little sheet. Nose is primarily like a candy tangerine or something. Finishes off a touch hot, which predictably enough is exactly how it starts off tasting. So, fairly astringent and messy heat is the overwhelming taste up front but does allow some of that sweet fruit to creep in eventually. Finishes thin but angry (I mentioned the heat, ya?) with just not a ton of depth.

I get a lot of sweetness from this IPA. A little caramel and very light hoppy notes on the finish.
