Draft. Pours hazy copper with frothy off-white head; good retention and some lacing. Aroma is floral and citrus hops, sweet malt, and some earthy notes. Flavor is light caramel malt up front then quickly dominated by floral and citrus hops; bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.

This IPA pours a hazy orange-amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes slowly to a film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Medium body with a mildly citrrusy hops character and notes of caramel malt and trace spices. The finish is lightly bitter hops with a short lemony aftertaste. Slightly above average all around.

Can. Pours orange with thick white head. Good lacing. Aroma of muted hops. Like a lager. Bland taste. Has to be dated. Good mouthfeel. Not good. Would like to re-rate.

On tap in D.C. The hops are relatively mild, but plenty of bitterness to the finish. Come across clean and easy to drink.
