The site says "retired" but I just had this on tap in Boise, so I shall need to note that.

Anyway, this is a strongly characterful, hoppy, but rather intense and unbalanced IPA.

Hazy orange amber, it has a smallish foamy off-white head soon shrinking to a foamy ring, with a little lace.

Aroma is candied citrus, marmalade and grapefruit, sour green grapes.

Taste is resiny and bitter-sweet candied citrus with light caramelly raisiny sweetness at first balanced but quickly overpower by the astringent, medicinal bitterness of bitter leaves and citrus, which dominates the aftertaste and lingers. This brings down drinkability a lot. It is, though, at least somewhat different from the norm and the medicinal quality has promise if it is reigned in and balanced, etc.
