Weathered copper orange in color with a slight haze. Poured with a short, dense off-white foam that reduced to a wispy cap that left wet sticky lacings down the glass. Sweet caramel malt aroma with a well-balanced citrus and floral hop presence and hints of toasted and lightly burnt caramel beneath. Medium bodied with soft, yet assertive carbonation and a light tanginess around the edges. Floral hop flavors up front with a hint of citrus hoppiness in the middle. Sturdy caramel and toasted malt backbone throughout. Floral hop and sweet caramel malt flavors stand alone at the end as this finishes dryly with a lingering bitterness. Very subtle hop and malt nuances with a pleasant feel and dry finish. Love the premise for the brew and the name....wish I could make a homebrew that was as good as this.

The website says American IPA,but man this has a big bready malt profile like an APA or American ESB,anyways a moot point.Pours into an imperial pint glass a glear lighter amber shade with a thinner lacey white head atop.Earthy and mild leafy hops mixed with toasted bread in the aromas,some caramel and fruitiness comes thru as well.Fresh bread dough on the palate with light toast,caramel lends sweetness,the hops are earthy and leafy in the finish,a German noble hop profile along with maybe some Chinooks?I don't know.I really like this beer it reminds me of some of the beers brewed around PA. that I drank alot of while I lived in Norristown 2002-2004 with it's breadiness and earthy hop profiles.Like an American ESB in my humble opinion.

On tap at the 2014 Secret Stash Bash (Atlanta).

Aroma of an IPA but has the milder flavor of an APA. Excellent balance.
Very soft in the mouth and mild bitterness given the pungent level of hops in the nose. Sessionable.

Feel: Dry and crisp. Near medium body lively carbonation.
