One of my favorites! Juicy tropical friuts and some caramely notes define this. A few floaters from the sediments, but it’s all good.

I was disappointed with this beer. It had a good taste, but it’s not an IPA for me. It pours a dark somewhat cloudy amber. I don’t know if this means a whole lot, but the head didn’t leave a lot of lacing either. It had a dense, sweet malt liquor smell to it. When I drank it I got a very heavy taste that was sticky in my mouth. The taste reminded me of caramelized onions. It wasn’t a hoppy IPA. It tasted more like bitter malt liquor. Sorry, but I’m not impressed with this IPA.
