Second beer over dinner. Slightly hazy with a thin bubbly head. As the Czechs say... You know a great beer at the first sip, but you should really finish it to make sure. This beer falls into that category. Piney and sweet hops encompass malts for nose. Full and rich body that is sturdy and robust. Balanced malts and hops...which says a lot since this has a heap of both. A tasty beer with crab cakes.

Pours copper with off white head. Aroma is citrus and pine. Flavor is sweet citrus with a grapefruit, and pine finish. I think So Long and Thanks for All the Hops ruined all the other IPA’s for me on this day.

BierMeHoos (546) - Maryland, USA - MAR 30, 2015
On tap at Franklin’s Restaurant, Brewery & General Store in Hyattsville, MD, part of a flight of 10. Appearance is an orange-amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is some citrus and orange peel plus a bit of malt. Taste is similar but with some nice citrus hop character. Palate is medium body and a slight bitterness. This is one of Franklins better beers. MORE please.
