355mL thanks to beerandblues2. Clear orange with a medium, yellow head with sheets of lace. Nose is cheese and soap. Pretty muted. Taste is a bit boozy with citrus peel and resinous and sappy hope. Not bad.

Nice sweet high alcohol IPA. Good sugary hop flavor and a decent amount of alcohol to warm.

Reviewed from notes.
Pours a moderate copper color with a white head and a bit of lacing. The nose is some light citrus and pine hops plus a bit of pale malt. The taste is mild bread without too much hop bitterness. A bit of citrus makes its way through. Pretty decent balance though the hops are not enough. Easy drinking but not terribly flavorful.
