On tap at the source Pour a slightly hazy reddish brown color with a fluffy off white head that displays moderate retention and lace. Smells of garlic with bits of pine and grapefruit with a hint of catty, some sweet bready malt buried deep underneath. Taste follows the aroma very well. Faint sweet bready malt with an onslaught of juicy hops piled up high. Medium body and level of carbonation with a slick resinous mouthfeel. I really enjoyed this beer, nice IPA
