had on-tap at the Tex-Mex. Nice to see restaurant supporting local breweries.
appears a darker copper amber color, with nice white head. The cap of head covers the beer until the very end.
aroma is pretty sweet, dominated by the honey. Taste follows similarly, with a fairly sweet flavors of malt and honey. The hops are subtle. Mouthfeel is very smooth, with lower carbonation that definitely works.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours dark amber and has aroma of florals, caramel and honey. Taste is sweet with a honey aftertaste. For some reason this beer left a terrible aftertaste, almost funky but in a bad way.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
on tap at Fatty’s - This is a confusing beer, and my review is based on it’s style (IPA). Dark amber pour with a small to medium white head. Aroma is mild - some malty sweetness. Flavor is mellow and smooth, slightly sweet and finishes with a lingering, albeit mild, hop bitterness. I think it would have scored a lot higher if it had been marketed as an Amber Ale though. When I see IPA, I know what I want - and this is not it. However, that’s not to say it’s a mediocre beer. Under certain circumstances I could definitely drink one of these. I can’t help but wonder if it hurts their sales calling it an IPA instead of an Amber. I can see that someone who decidedly doesn’t like IPAs or bitter beers might avoid this outright, but if it was labeled as an Amber they might try it.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice copper colour with creamy lacing. Really nice floral aroma, violets, rose hips. Was kind of lacking in taste for me. Malty at the front with a little hop kick on the backend. Love the aroma, not a bad beer.
