Bottle; dark caramel-orange pour with a fairly white head. Aroma of pine, earth, citrus, a good dose of caramel and slightly sugary sweetness. Flavor was maltier than expected; a good dose of caramel and some sugary sweetness in finish. Hoppiness creeps in a bit. A bit too malty.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours copper-orange with a one finger off white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, caramel, sweet malt,s and light herbal hops. Taste i about the same as the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a moderately bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty nice IPA that is named after a mountain in my hometown that I have ran/hiked so many times.

65 cl bottle. Dark copper color, lots of particle in suspension, thick white head. Hoppy nose of american hops. Aroma: dark bread, cereals, grains, nuts, wanlut.
