A: A dark coppery penny coloring with a bready one inch oatmeal colored head that sat momentarily. A murky clarity, almost ice tea like. Toasted speciality malt colored.
S: Spicy nose, clean hopping, light in strength with a soft lemony and toasted speciality grain presence. Sugary grains, wort like, and ice tea notes.
T: A flavor of toasted graininess, sweet, with semi-dry lemon hops and ice tea. A hint of alcohol at 6.3% with some mineral earthy tea and toasty grains.
M: Medium body, malty tones that turns frothy on the hold. Low rate of carbonation from the tap.
O: Overall not as "juicy" as advertised. More of an old world ipa with a sweet grainy toasted backing with a session like helping of hops that add subtle spiciness without the weight of all the bitterness. Crisp, dry and refreshing for a nice break from the hot summer time weather.
Appears dark golden color, amber hues. White head. Aroma does have some fruity hop aroma, but not as much as expected from a beer labeled a "Juicy IPA". Same with the taste - hop flavor doesnt get much above the malt flavor. Not very bitter though. Medium mouthfeel.
