20090207 Tap at Bel Air location. Pale amber, pretty light for an IPA. Other than color, this fits the standard brewpub IPA mold. Clean, mild, simple. Nice pithy finish.

Growler from Beachbum25. Thanks. Bright gold pour with a nice fluffy lasting head and super sticky icky lacing. A really nice looking beer IMO. The aroma is of toasted caramel malts, some bread, and hops in the form of earth, citrus, and wood. Nice toasted malts, a touch of sweetness, all rounded out with nice earthy hops, citrus skins and wood. The carbonation is light and the beer drinks very smoothly. Quite good for session drinking.

Growler courtesy of beachbum25. Pours copper with a generous white head. Smells of citrus, perfume, resin, dough, caramel, some light pepper. Tastes moderately bitter with lots of earthiness, touches of citrus, some spicy hints. Finishes earthy. Very enjoyable!
