Cloudy copper color. Aromas and flavors of toasted berry custard pastry, roasted yams and corn, dried herbs, and squash stew with a satiny, vibrant, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-long finish manifesting elements of pretzel bread pudding, pine grilled citrus, blueberry chutney on rye, and radicchio finish. A subtly flavored berry IPA that retains the attractive citrus and pepper character of the hops.

Flavored IPAs are a relatively new beer style developed and popularized in the mid-2010's. They are characterized by the addition of other flavor ingredients, most notably citrus fruit juices used to complement and augment the citrus-forward nature of newer hop varieties used in American IPAs.
