This ale is best after it opens up in your glass for about 20 minutes. More caramel like flavors come out and the ale becomes smoother. Initially, this ale has a 2 inch head when poured! Huge! The color is a beautiful gold color, very nice indeed. The sip (sipping now) and smell is both floral and caramel. The aromatics are increasing, the stench is a good funky hoppy smell. There seems to be a spicy flavor or almost grapefruit rind, light/not too sweet toffee and roasted hops, with a yeasty finish that becomes elegantly bitter in the aftertaste. Lighter and slightly bitter IPA.
