Draft at the Santee Bluegrass Festival. One of the only IIPAs on the field. That didn’t help it much. some of the single IPAs were better. Deeply hoppy on the nose that faded in the flavor. Sweet malt forward on the tongue. It was good. I could drink it, but I expected more.

On tap at Disneyland area locale. Guzzled after dragging my 80 yr old dad on a 30 minute stroll so I could drink with my children. Dude is a freakin’ tooper. Grapefruit, random other citrus blend, pine, smooth malt base. Lacks complexity. Meh. Our waitress needs to hit the treadmill. A lot.
