On tap @ Broken Drum. Clear golden pour with a white head. Aromas of candy, fruity pebbles, and orange juice. Surprisingly not bad. A touch of malt. Flavor is a bit on the sweet side. Minimal bitterness, but fruity pebbles, some orange, and a bit of lemon candy. Some malt, pine, and skunk.

yngwie (15191) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Lightly hazy, golden in color and with a small off-white head. The aroma is lightly fruity, pine and quite peachy, some malty notes. Good bitterness in the flavor, with peach hints, pine cones and some malty sweetness. Full body, soft carbonation. A bit short finish. A decent one, but forgettable. 130806

Again IPAs aren't really my thing but this beer is an IPA which I could drink. It is very mild and not too bitter but still maintains a good hoppy aftertaste. If you don't like IPA but have to drink one this is a good beer to try. This beer helped me expand my horizons and realize that all IPA isn't bad. Again my rating might be shifted downward due to the fact this isn't my favorite style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at the brewpub. Slightly hazy golden with a small off-white head, low retention. Light citrus and floral nose with some pale biscuity malts. Flavor much the same and a little grainy. More APA like, really. Finished semi-dry with bitterness at a 3. Low carbonation with a light to medium body. OK.
