Bottle. Amber pour with a white head. Plenty of citrus hops. Good body and carbonation. A dry ending with slight bitterness. I was thinking this was a decent IPA, then saw the fine print. Amber!

12 ounce bottle pours a light raisin color very dark for style. Moderate off-white head that dissipates in a couple minutes. Lots of hop particles floating in suspension. Very nice piney and citrus aromas. Exceptional hops to malt balance with smooth bitterness throughout. Extremely well-crafted I PA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle into tulip: Pours amber with a nice white head with decent lacing. Aroma of slight caramel, resin, floral, and malt. Flavor is very dry resin / pine hops, a tiny bit of sweetness, and almost no trace of an amber caramel that I was expecting. It really is a nice European style dry resiny IPA, but I’m not getting the amber-type notes that I would expect (think Nugget Nectar or Red Wheelbarrow). Good beer but could have been great.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Amber with lots of floaty bits big light tan head and great lace. Aroma is strong earthy and spicy hops...more English I was expecting. Flavor follows with deep and round bitterness dominating light fruity sweetness. There’s a soapiness throughout. Feel is watery and not so lively but the bitterness is mouthwatering. As labelled.

Such love for this beer. It’s a mega US-style amber with loads of fantastic hop flavours and might be more correctly called an imperial IPA. The hops are so very, very smooth
