In The Glass: Candied orange color with a heavy amount of suspended sediment.

Aroma: Fair amount of malt presence with slight hop/floral/earthy aroma.

Taste: Good balance of hop/malt flavor with a surprising bitterness afterwards. Very little body.

Feel: Very watery.

Not very good at all. Maybe I've been drinking too many good DIPAs, but I don't smell anything. Like an unscented candle. Taste is meh. Too much malt. Got on sale for $4.99 a sixer. Wonder why.

Pours amber, a bit darker than the typical IPA. White head quickly dissipates. Hop aroma is subdued for the style. It has a decent bitter bite but is also pretty malty. Mouthfeel is average. This beer is a bit different than the average IPA. Darker, maltier, and less hoppy. Still a good beer, but not necessarily what I want when I grab an IPA.

looks murky amber with head that stats a few minutes then leaves thick lacing.

Bit of hops for the nose,not much.

Pleasant , not overpowering, hop bite.

Smooth mouth feel, not that much substance.

Not spectacular, but I could drink a few of these.
