Hazey copper color with tiny head. Nose of bready malt, orange, floral piney notes. Tastes of resin, orange and a little citrus, piney at back end. Clean finish. A good IPA but I think it lacks the piney bite I'm looking for.

Not sure if I got this old, off a dirty tap line, or what. Bad malt flavor masked everything, and I barely got any pine or tropical fruit flavor. A lot of that bad musty copper flavor going on. Thankfully it was at a company event so I took 3 sips and had a buddy check to see if I was crazy about something being off. He claimed it was just a bad brew. I'm unconvinced they WANTED the beer to taste like that. After that, just left the glass on the bar.

500ml bottle.

L: Slightly hazy orange with white head. Good lacing.

S: Grapefruit/spice resembling Chinook and Willamette. Some subtle noble aroma.

T: Firm bitterness upfront, followed by citrus/spice/noble flavor with lasting American hop taste. Enough malt to back up the hops but no malty/bready flavor.

F: Medium mouth feel with plenty of hop body. Gives me the hop burps.

O: Lower alcohol Imperial IPA (certainly not double the stats of an IPA), with a balanced blend of American and noble hops; I'd call it a solid IPA. Good to see a brewery that focuses on old styles bringing in a more modern recipe.

I've had this beer a few times, but this is the first time that I had the chance to review it. The beer is slightly hazy, golden, and with a huge white head. The aroma is malty, with lots of floral, resiny, earthy hops. Full in flavor, slightly sweet, strong in alcolhol and warming. The beer is engaging, fun, and solidly bitter. Full in body and drinkable.
