Bottle from the beer emporium. An absolute cracker. An abundance of fresh fruity hops that is balanced by a smooth dry refreshing finish. Very moorish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not really sure why this is listed as a ESB, I’m taking it as more of an IPA, good hop bitterness, and a nice bitter finish
