The unique thing is a kind of toasty almost smokey savory flavor. Spicy. The bitterness is frankly too much for me to enjoy it (95 ibu?) but the flavors themselves are fine.

Pretty solid stuff. Nice flavor profile. Not too much bite as other similar ipa's. You could make it a good full bodied, sessionable ipa. This last sentence is 150 characters.

Poured a clear, golden orange color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of citrus, pine and toasted caramel. Good toasty flavor with a piney bitterness and a hint of smoke.
