The beer pours amber and copper in color. There is nearly an inch of thick and foamy off-white head. The aroma is mostly tart and tangy, a touch soapy. I am getting nervous here, the bottle says it is a malty IPA brewed with a ship load of raw hops. I am fearing infection due to this overly tart aroma. Here goes. A bit malty, lots of soapy, with a tang that enters into sour. Bummer! This is a drain pour.
