3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: The pour is a clear amber color with a finger of sticky off-white head that leaves some nice lacing.
S: Quite heavy on the caramel and toffee maltiness. The hop character is there, though in the background. It’s mostly spicy and herbal with a decent grass note, too. Just a hint of fruitiness on the back end.
T: Strangely toasty in nature with lots of bready malts and caramel. A slight bitterness to it with lots of woody/herbal hops and a light spicy note, too. There is still a fair amount of sweetness, too.
M: Medium in body with a medium level of carbonation.
O: Too sweet without the real intense and citrusy hop profile that I tend to look for in an IPA.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle... This beer rocks!... Lightly hazed orange ale with a mid-sized, frothy, off-white head. Lengthy, creamy retention. The aroma is a churning eddy of malty aromas... brown sugar, caramel, praline and toffee with some type of mystery fruit working its way into the mix. Full-bodied with a chewy mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. The sturdy malt backbone (and there is certainly one provided here) is needed to even attempt to balance-out the acrid and bitter plethora of hops thrown into the boil. Finishes bitter and then dry. A malt head’s IPA! World class, under appreciated brew! Kudos to pepsican for shipping this liquid happiness to me!
