Big malt flavors of toffee and bread with a lingering, honey-like sweetness. Too malt forward for the style. Hops were nice, however, adding some earthy, floral and grassy elements. Bitterness was on the mild side.

Draft. Copper with a white head. Very heavy on sweet malt and honey with some hop bite. Ok.

Pours a very clear amber and flat looking. Aroma was sweet, couldn’t really pick one thing out. Taste was where I could pick a few things out. Honey was up front for me along with some caramel. I got no hop flavor, but it had a nice bitter bite.

Too sweet. The hop flavor is overpowered. It's only 7.1%. It is as sweet as an Imperial. I need a solid hop flavor and some bitterness in an IPA.

amber color; caramel, sweet aroma with floral hop notes; lots of caramel malt flavor; semi-sweet malt base with floral hop note, but not nearly as bitter as I would expect from an IPA

From the bottle poured a brownish brew with a white head. Aromas and flavors of malt and hops and some funny unidentifiable flavors.

Copper color and a piney grassy aroma. Bright white head that dissipates rather quickly. Piney bitter flavor from the hops is there with a bit of lemon flavor in the finish.

Bottle... Pours clear and dark amber with a small, wispy, white head. Aromatic standouts are marmalade and fruitcake. Medium-bodied with expired carbonation. The flavor is a well-balanced marriage of caramel-like malts and tannic grapefruit bitterness. Finishes raspy and dry. Bottle courtesy of one very generous ygtbsm94!
