  • Pours clear with a half inch of slightly off-white foam. Retention is above average with the amount of original foam. Lacing is thick and coating, leaving spotty lacing behind as most lazily slinks back to level.

    Aroma is subtle for an IPA. A caramel malt backbone takes over floral and earth hop scents.

    Taste is more the same but with some spice hints that do the beer injustice. Some hop bitterness add balance.

    Light body with a good dose of carbonation.

    I really like the aroma as I couldn't pick up the spice but it bombed me once I took the first sip. I would have it again but only if there was nothing else. Enjoy!
