[6530-20140710] Bottle. Light boozy malt resin influence in the aroma. Clear, amber red body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head. Boozy grains and resin flavour has a sweet hoppy aftertaste. Medium body. Interesting, nice hops profile. (7/4/8/4/15) 3.8

Very very heady on pour hoppiness aroma is overwhelming. Unbalanced bitterness of hops ob palate lingers long ccassions after taste. A very poor excuse of an IPA

Bottle: pours dark orangish with a thin white head, aroma is slightly hoppy, some caramel, taste is very malty, a little too much for my liking from an IPA, some hops/bitterness in the finish.

Atlanta, Ga. - Hop City - 22 oz bomber. Hazy medium copper pour, soft, silky white head, nice lacing. Aroma has some earthy accents, a bit of wort-like maltiness, slight hint of allspice spiciness. Full bodied flavor with some caramel maltiness, just a hint of light citrus bitterness, some yeasty background notes. Mouthfeel has a nice full thickness to it. Interesting take on an IPA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Im getting tea with honey in the aroma mostly with a touch of hops,interesting anyway..cloudy dark amber appearance,creamy dissipating off white head...I get a mostly malty lagerlike flavor with piney hops for balance and background almost like a more hoppy irish red,much like yuengling lager too..palate a bit slick with a bitter finish..overall..itís not highly rated and it was bargain priced (4.50 for 22 oz) so I was expecting the worst but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised will definitely get again a well balanced and easy drinking IPA

New Beer Distributors, NYC 650ml: Pours copper with a white head. Aroma is caramel, earthy hops, and some light sugariness. Taste is slightly bitter. There is a bit of sweetness. To me, this comes off like an old IPA. I donít think it is, seeing as this seems to be everyoneís reaction to it. Not to say that there ainít no freshness. Not bad, but kind of meh.

Pours amber with a white head. Biscuity malt aroma with some notes of caramel and pine. Flavor starts off caramel malt with biscuity maltiness and finishes with a piney spicy hop bitterness. Decent bitterness at the end.

Bottle from State Line. Honey amber pour with some head and good lacing. Caramel on the nose. Toasted caramel malts with a lot of biscuity flavors. Some earthy hops, but this was pretty syrupy sweet. I would have thought this was an ESB if I were guessing.
