Doesn't really stand out much from anything I've had to drink IPA wise.

L: Clear copper red color with a creamy white head and no lacing on the glass. Pretty dark color for an IPA.

S: Pine, a little bit of tropical fruit and a strong nose of alcohol, especially for the abv. Some caramel malt in the background.

T: Pine and caramel malt, also has a kinda apple cider taste to it. Very odd tasting for an IPA. Restrained bitterness. Very sweet on the stomach too.

F: Medium body and carbonation.

O: This IPA has a really weird taste and doesn't remind me much of an IPA. This bottle didn't have a bottling date so it could be old.

On tap. Look is a light yellow orange more like an APA. Smell doesn't deliver much for me. Taste is pleasant but not spectacular. I love my hop bombs, while this one is more restrained. It does have good hop/malt balance and some lingering bitterness. Feel is similarly restrained. Overall this might be a good session IPA, but not one that would excite me on a tap list
