This beer is awesome because it has a long finish. Which to me means great hops! Tastes good on the back of the tongue :)

On tap at Elysian Fields for SBW. Pours a hazy dark gold. Great floral hops dominate the aroma and the flavor. Very little bitterness and clean going down. but there is a touch of bitterness in the finish. A pretty light IPA and probably a good summer brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Elysian Capitol Hill. Really nice medium hoppy aroma in the form of floral, pine, earthy organic C hops I would assume. Pours a copper amber with a nice thin but lasting head and good lace. Initial floral piney hops, soft toasty sweetness underneath. Lingering earthy organic hop bitterness. Rather earthy, medium bitterness, just a touch of citrus underneath lots of floral/piney notes. Dry earthy finish, drinks very nicely.

Draft at Elsyian fields, had a mild hop aroma for an IPA, clear orange body with a thin head. Rather unremarkable brew, but certainly decent enough.
