Amber color with a bit of haze. Frothy, but small head which settles to rim bubbles. Webs for lace.

Harsh cactus-like hop bite to the nose. Very little malt nose.

Earthy start, a bit like dirt. The hop bitterness stays in the background until the swallow. Better balance than the smell would indicate. The aftertaste lasts a moderate time.

Poured from a bottle dated best by 4/16/16. Slightly amber gold beer, with a big frothy white head and bigger bubbles that I'm not used to. Very Nice webby lacing that makes its way all around the glass. Little bubbles rising up to the top throughout the entire duration of the drink.

Smell is faint and lends itself toward a heavier hop profile than expected, mixed with some pale malty aromas. Not much citrus or zest going on or anything else bright. Taste confirms the above and brings out the heavier feel in this beer. It is light bodied, but is leaving an unpleasant syrupy taste on the back of the tongue and throat, maybe I'm just feeling sick (I am), but really kinda disappointed. The drink is carbonated so its easy to take a big gulp but wasn't very rewarding after.

Maybe it's not the right batch but it seems like a really syrupy, standard IPA even though it looks pretty. I'll give it another try one day, haven't been totally turned off of the brewery quite yet either.

12oz bottle poured into an IPA glass.

A: Red-orange in color, and on the darker side. Very mild haze. Thick and creamy off-white head retains well. Sheets of thick and sticky lacing.

S: Passion fruit, pomegranate, melon, blood orange, mango. Sweet bud. Bubblegum. Caramel and candy shell malt.

T: Earthy and leafy up front. Sticky bud in a big way. Melon and kiwi. Blood orange, sugared grapefruit, mango, peach, passion fruit. Medium level of bitterness. Bubblegum. Yeast comes through a bit. Malt base counters with a big caramel character and some nutty toast. Juicy hop finish.

M: Sturdy medium body. Full in the mouth with a sense of heft. Creamy and chewy. Plenty of fine, expressive carbonation adds a good bite.

O: Well rounded and well balanced, but it still manages to fully showcase the sexy side of the hops used. Hop complexities are deep and delicious. Mighty fine drinking.
