The beer is honey colored with a thick cream colored head that leaves thick sheets of lacing.

Aroma is honey, cedar, light pepper.

Tastes woody, spicy, slightly sweet with rich malts and honey, spicy woody dry finish.

Mouthfeel is thick.

Overall, malty thick honey bomb with low bitterness. Pretty easy to drink yet thick.

-deep amber can pour with a thin, tan foam film. The aroma is minimal, slightly caramel. The flavor is pleasantly fresh pine hop over a deep malt base. The hop bitterness is minimal and is most detectable in the back of the mouth. This is easy to drink.

Nothing that stands out here for me. Some earthy notes and some caramel malt, a very mild touch of citrus zest on the finish. It's an IPA because the label says so. Give me more hops...give me something that stands out.

Has a good amber color. But thats about all that impressed me. Not very hoppy or aromatic at all which made for a pretty bland IPA
