Growler compliments of bill. hazy orange, golden pour with light head. Notes of heavy cereal malt, grain, bitter hops, wood, vanilla, and booze. Too aggressive for me.

Elwood (2960) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Franklinís Private IPA: Serving: Draft at The Black Squirrel. It has a hazy, dark gold color with a small white head. The nose is a mix of soap and grapefruit hop notes. The flavor leans more towards the soapy side with a lot of grainy cereral notes. This one is a little rough around the edges. Medium, slightly oily mouthfeel and a finish that lingers. Seems like it kind of leaves a film in your mouth. Not the greatest IPA.

Derek881 (952) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAY 13, 2012
I had a 4oz sample of this beer at the 2012 Frederick Beer Festival. The beer had a mostly-clear, light gold-amber color with an average-sized, foamy white head with great retention, and good cling and lacing. The aroma featured some citrus hops with a touch of pine, and also a bit of caramel malt and barley. The beer had a light and crisp citrus taste and bitterness with a touch of pine and a lighter, sweet malty caramel effect. Its body was a bit dry and a touch think with a light mouthfeel and average carbonation.

On tap at Franklinís. Pours an orange-amber color with an off-white head and a bit of lacing. The nose carries through some citrus and orange peel plus a bit of malt. The flavor is slightly-malty with some nice citrus hop character Medium body and a slight bitterness. Pretty good.
