3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale golden-amber pour. Tight lacing. A fruity sort of hoppiness but not much in the way of resin or bitterness. Light bitterness but an almost lime sort of tropical fruit flavour. Not a terribly punchy West coast IPA but it’s pleasant enough.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I think this is the beer called a spring IPA. A good workaday not to hoppy but hoppy enow IPA. Some floral in the flavour and a little naartjie in the aroma. Hop finish.

Barrel aged version on tap at the Barrel House. Pours a Muddy brown pour. Nice berry notes, some wood and a touch of citrus in the nose. Barrel, musty hops, smooth touch of biscuit come through in the flavor. Nice brew.
