Pours dark amber with a fading white head.
Nose shows toasted malt, nutty malt, caramel and resinous hops. Not as hoppy as I expected.
Similar flavours. Perhaps the hops have faded. Too much malt and not enough hops.
Could use a bit more carbonation.

*Review taken from notes*

A: Slightly hazy amber gold color with eggshell head. Good lacing throughout beer.

S: Strong citrus smell. Quality aroma. Barley giving it some subtle earthiness. Not sour like some IPAs.

T: A cross between a citrus and earthy hop flavor. Nice finish.

M: Healthy carbonation. Heavy body.

O: A quality beer for sure. Not sure that it's better than a Dogfish Head 60-minute, or other earthy IPAs I've had, but this is good. Would certainly drink again.
