This definitely tasted different than I expected. The mouthfeel is essentially creamy and rich, but the aftertaste is really kind of out there and somewhat chalky. The hops are really herbal and grassy and not what I would have chosen for this IPA.

Draft at the Eugene brewery. Cloudy orange and gold color. Texture is of medium thickness, lightly fruity flavor throughout - has a light creamy, rancid, unfinished nose with a weed-like, earthy taste. More caustic and astringent and rough than their other IPAs. Sour.
