to me, this taste like a bigger version if sixpoint's sensi. earthy and a little dank, the hop profile is very tasty. this has a good malt profile that really helps balance this and make it much better than I had anticipated.

Don't know what's going on with my palate, but several years ago hoodo and lake Erie monster by great lakes were 2 of my favorites, know I really don't care for either. It has a nice Golden copper color and decent smell but each year it's less and less appeasing to me. Maybe it's because they are so many other hoppy ipas out there. I don't know. It's ok at best.

This is a slightly hazed orange=brown evoking old but polished bronze. The head caps at just over a finger and falls slowly. As it does, it leaves some solid patchy lacing.
The nose is pretty aromatic, heavy on woods with a sort of potpourri spiciness. It's very earthy, must and dank, maybe even a little mossy but in a rustic way that isn't bad. It's almost cottony, somehow, with a fruity sort of undertone.
The taste follows pretty closely with woods strongest and a sort of cheddary note along with the savory spicing and no emphasis on sweetness, just enough to balance. As it is, it leans pithy but not harsh or astringent with lots of that rustic earth coming through again.
Crispness bites yet it doesn't lose it, not to mention smoothness or carbonation even, with a good deal of time. The body is a solid medium and runs semi-dry, perhaps bordering drier.
