Classic orange-amber with a lumpy off-white foam, this one is sharp and almost boozy with flavors of grapefruit, graham, pepper and orange via a big yet light froth through a medium body and a cotton dry, drinkable finish.

Tap

Pours mostly clear amber golden. White film for a head.

Smells of bright citrus hops and biscuit malts.

Flavor is of biscuit and maple with citrus and pine hops.

Medium body, tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Very nice, clean IPA. Good balance between the citrus and earthy hops. This is like an IPA you could get a lot of 5 years ago but has gone out of style and is missed. Definitely worth having and coming back to.

Poured from 12-ounce bottle into a Duvel tulip. Very pretty clear dark amber-colored pour, with a thick eggshell-colored head that left lots of lacing. Aroma is very malt forward, with big notes of caramel and dark bread and a hint of citrus. Lots of malt sweetness on the palate, with flavors of light caramel, orange, grapefruit, pine resin, and orange zest. Brewer claims 66.6 IBU's, and they're all there. There is a very unpleasant oily and resinous finish that coats the tongue and seems to hang on forever, the only negative quality to what is otherwise a solid beer.
