3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at Barrels -Bourbon & BUgs 2012. Poured a very good looking super clear deep amber body with an average sized foamy super light beige head. Aroma was very earthy with some rotting citurs and wet bread. The flavor had a touch of metallic notes followed by earth, hint of chocolate, bread and grains. Smooth body with a silky mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Not blown away by this one as it was far to earthy for an IPA.
