I really like other Thomas Creek brews and I'm not a regular IPA drinker, so keep that in mind. Unable to pick up any chocolate or orange taste, it was all hops, no balance.

Good in theory ... This thing poured all head. Taste was like a black ipa but also a bit sour. Did not detect significant chocolate or orange notes. Despite that the flavor was decent with some hoppiness and general citrus. May have had an older bottle.
