GT2 (9241) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Tap at Franklins. Clear orange amber pour. Weak head. Collar of white foam. Decent lace. Sticky, gummy nose with a lot of butterscotch. Taste is not too astringent or boozy. Soft up front moving to very dusty with bitter orange peel. Easier to drink than the normal IPA surprisingly. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
