4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy orange amber with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out big time caramel malts, syrupy notes, and some resinous hops. Flavour is very much on the sweeter side, bringing out loads of caramel, red fruits, and loads of resinous hops. Not overly bitter or one-sided in the hops. Usually Iím not a big fan of such sweet IPAs, but this is wonderfully balanced. Excellent stuff.

Bottle thanks to my buddy jose for bringing this from la to dc for me to sample. Pours deep orange almost amber with a small off white soapy head. Nose is resin pine lite alcohol big carmel sweetness with resin sort of like a barleywine. Flavors of sweet carmel malt up front then finishes very dry and resinous. Long dry resinous piney finish witb lingering alcohol. Some heat in the finish. Not a bad iipa but not great.
