UPDATED: DEC 19, 2017 Draft... Pours clear and deeply amber with copper highlights and a mid-sized, creamy, white head that never even considers bowing out. The aroma is a bit muted and disappointing, but I've eaten a lot of things that didn't smell appetizing at all, but broke all the olfactory system/taste system connection rules and ended up being delicious, so we’ll see. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. Actually, this is a really nice, decently balanced, east coast-style IPA. Due to what I assume is a more generous malt bill than that of their Diesel Plant APA, this IPA is less bitter than the APA. This is a brilliant crossover IPA, but personally, I'd prefer more dry-hopping and/or late boil hopping to bring the aroma to life. Doing so would probably benefit the flavor as well, to an extent. This finishes bittersweet (more sweet than bitter) and citrus-rindy. Drinks a lot like a IIPA.
On tap at brewery in downtown Vero Beach, Fla. Pours cloudy orange with small creamy off-white head and lacing. Aroma: citrus, honey, pine. Flavor: the above, just more, along with black pepper. Mouthfeel: medium-bodied, long bitter finish.
