Pours murky dark red color with a medium sized head. Aroma has hops, caramel malts, some resin, sweet fruits and some nutty notes. Flavor is also sweet with fruits, some resinous hops and some malts and nuts. Mild biscuits and grapefruits on the finish. Quite smooth, almost creamy, malty palate with soft carbonation. I usually don’t like malty IPAs that much but this is quite good.
