Some caramel and lots of pine/citrus hops in the aroma. Flavor starts with a solid caramel base beer, with some bitter hops and drying alcohol finish. Not the best double IPA you can find, but a fine beer.

Aroma - floral, citrus, funk

A very nice beer. Pours Amber with a thin head. The aroma is malty sweet with a bit of bread and some wood. The flavor has the sweet malt, a bit of wood and a nice bit of bitter hops. No alcohol to be found until you have to get up.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Poured alight amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of bitter earthy hops with dry caramel malt notes. Taste is also dominated by bitter hops notes with limited complexity and some lightly sweet malt backbone. Body is about average with good carbonation. I thought there was too much malt and limited hops presence with a lacks of complexity in the hops profile.
