Nothing special here. More spice overtones than hoppiness.

First had: on tap at Earth Eagle

Poured a cloudy burnt orange color with a ringlet of white bubbles. Aroma was fairly sweet, candied orange peel, caramel malts. Taste was similar, more fruity and sweet than hoppy, flavors of candied zest and sweet malts, with a touch of pithy bitterness. Medium body, pretty slick on the tongue. I thought this one was a bit unimpressive, but it could be that since the Shepherd's Crook blew me away, this one just ended up seeming sub-par in comparison. Still good though.

Growler shared by Bowser, thanks for the opportunity!
A little sweet but nice hop flavor and aroma. Citrus and pine, nice brew.

Poured into an imperial pint from a growlerette. Color was a bit of reddish amber, with a minimal white head. Head lasted for a while, there just wasn't much of it. Aroma was primarily a slightly sweet floral hops. Flavor was slightly sweet, but with a malty hint in the backend to offset. A bit of hoppy kick occasionally at the end of a sip. A bit mellower than the aroma indicated. Coated nicely, a bit of tickle on the tongue from the carbonation. Went down well. Overall a solid IPA. A bit something to the flavor would have been appreciated, was a tad blander than the aroma would have one believe.
