I canít get over how beautiful the head is. Itís two-toned, between a dense, off-white color and a more frothy, medium brown. Even the lacing, which is so thick that it reminds me of frothed eggs stuck to the side of a poaching pan, has moments of white and others of brown. The color and frothiness reminds me of one of those foam mattress covers.
Underneath that strong, long-lasting head lives a bold, deep burnt orange colored ale that appears to be bursting with douhy sweetness. The nose is soft, and although sweet not as sweet as I expected, with a slightly citrusy hop character that really reaches up into your sinuses. The beer is wickedly smooth in the mouth, almost creamy, but more porous. The beer looks like itís loaded with residual sugars, but itís really kept well under control. It could be that this beer is nearly a year old now, and for that accident I am grateful. Itís earthy in the mouth, with flavors of rustic grains and husks present throughout. Thereís a nice bitterness that really only shows its face in the finish, and even then it inherits a blunt smoothness from the distinctive body.

12oz bottle shared pours a medium to dark copper color with white head and nice lacing. Aroma is creamy malty goodness with some pine and citrus hops. The flavor is full bodied rich texture in the maltiness. The pine and orange/citrus is quite flavorful. Overall solid beer very drinkable and not overly bitter for the amount of hops.

From bottle. Pours a hazy light mahogany with a small white head and a little lacing. Aroma is a lovely citrus pine hops. Taste is bitter at first, but with nice malts in the background that come forward as the beer warms a little. Slick medium mouthfeel. Bittersweet aftertaste.

A really nice IPA. A great hop flavor which changes slightly throughout the beer. A nose of hops. Flavor is balanced well with the bitterness upfront which settles to some slight spice and sweet malts. Finishes clean.
