I sincerely hope this was just a bad/old bottle. It was the ugliest looking IPA I have ever seen. There was zero hop character in the nose or the flavor. It was loaded with sweet malts and only a vague hint of bergamot and citrus.

I thought this was one of the best beers. The beer is unique and has a lot of flavor.

Aroma is yeast, citrus, complex tropical fruit and a hint of hop resin. The flavor is citrus, fruit, grapefruit, light pine needles, hop resin, malts and a very tangy/bitter finish.

A: Pours a hazy brown with a small amount of off-white head. Some film retains, along with a ring around the edge of the glass, leaving a few splotches of lacing.

S: Sweet fruit and citrus; while the hops are certainly noticeable, the malt backbone seems stronger. I wouldn't expect this to be an IPA based on the smell.

T: Also primarily sweet, with a good balancing hop flavor. Again, though, it's not as hoppy as you'd expect an IPA to be; it's more of an American style strong ale.

M: Medium to full body, medium carbonation.

Overall, quite good, but not really what I'd call an IPA. It's dark and sweet and not that hoppy for a modern American style craft beer. It's tasty though.
