This American IPA released a resiny, citrus hop aroma upon initial pour. Very fruity, but without any one identifiable fruit dominating the aromatics. Ethanol at appropriate levels delivered a warming to the nose. This beer poured a turbid deep amber in color with a big white head that held up from beginning to end. Aromas perceived in the bouquet were also present in the flavor profile. Citrus, resiny notes were more pronounced here and quite assertive. This is, in every respect, a hop-forward beer. The accompanying malt was of a caramel nature -- very sweet and a bit cloying. It finished very dry with a firm hop presence, although the bitterness was not in any way harsh. Alcohol, which was evident, did not border on imperial strength and did not overwhelm. Though this is a full-bodied, smooth and well-conditioned IPA, I would have appreciated a tad more grainy malt character and less of the caramel malt sweetness.
