On draft at Big Storm. Pours a hazy brown with an off-white head. Nose is roasted malts, some toast, earth, and some piney hops. Flavor is similar with roasted malts, some toast, some earth, and some pine. Light to medium in body and interesting overall.

Not very hoppy, kind of weak for an ipa. Hints of coffee and caramel. Best beer I’ve had from Big Storm.
