It has a beautiful dark amber complexion, a medium and persistent foam and the smell is not as marked as in many American IPAs. It smells familiar hops with fruity touch of apricot and citrus. Unlike many American IPAs, it has a nice malty flavor which offers caramel notes to the extent that I can reach to taste malt properly within the hops takes over. Hop bitterness is dominated by citrus and apricot and especially apricot puts sweetness level slightly higher. IBU is 55, but although it is a relatively high IBU value so kept the bitterness fine with its malty appearance.

Draught. Quite nice. The taste is quite typical for an American ipa. The taste is sharp although the hops aren’t too strong.

snoworsummer (3504) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 19, 2015
Draft at the brewpub. Pours clear amber with a fizzy white head. Tastes like resin, grapefruit hops, pine, some caramel, and some booze. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like resin, grapefruit, pine, tropical fruit, and caramel.

Nice sweet caramelly malts, fruit and some dustiness. Watery palate, fizzy carbonation. Pungent acidic hops. Huge bitter bite, leaves a nice tingle on the tongue. To carbonation. Nice fatty hop finish, coats the mouth with resins. But too fizzy and watery. Malts only present in sugars, no real body. Note - there was some confusion whether this was IPA and a Half, going with what the staff said, rather than what my tongue told me about the relative strengths of the two.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2015 Tap @ Tommyknocker, Helsinki. Thanks bluus. Pours orange. Aroma is citrusy, some caramel. Taste is along the same lines. Alright, not special. A bit too light mouthfeel.
