Bottle, pours hazy almost brown orange - mostly brown with a soft white head that leaves quickly. Aroma, very malty sweet with a hint of orange. Taste, is bready with somesubtle pine under tones that give a short tingle to the tongue and a lingering spicyness. Not a normal Ipa

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy copper/orange with a tan head. Crips citrus and herbal hops in the aroma with biscuit malt as well. Full body. Flavor is much like the aroma with the citrus and light herbal notes. Biscuit malts and light spicing finish this IP off. A bit different than normal IPAs. Not better or worse, really, just solid.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a cloudy body with next to no head. Sweet with honey flavors initially and a piney finish. Kind of strange as IPAs go..

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice color; bronze, orange, amber, yellow. This thing is thick and natural, nicely full-bodied. The head dies quickly. Aroma is spicy, with wet earth and a little vegetation. When cold the aroma isn’t that strong. But the thickness belies some change will occur over warming. Initial flavors are a bit dull; a heaping of cloying sweetness and an overlay of pine and citrus make this chewy, but not in the best way. But overall it is a handmade, very natural feeling beer and that is good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a nice vaguely reddish amber with white head. I get light aromas of brown sugar, coffee, chocolate, hops, and a slightly off aroma, maybe DMS. Flavor’s pretty good, I think it does have some DMS though. Malty with a decent spicy hop presence. Mouthfeel normal. Overall, pretty good.
