Bottle. Haazy brown/orange color with a nice froth of tan foam. Aroma is heavy with pine and eathy spice and sweet malt. Taste is spicy hops with slight char and toasted malt and an herbal almost medicinal characters. Very bitter. Coasting mouthfeel. Different take on the IIPA style but was a bit to herbal and spicy for my tastes.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled sample via and shared with oakbluff. Orange in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of fruity caramel, pale and lightly toasted malt, and a hint of pine. A bit caramel and malty sweet in the mouth, with floral and fruity hop flavors mixed in. A bit heavy and lacking in both bitterness and hop character. Too mellow for my taste. Perhaps it was an older bottle?
