Tap @ Bistro IPA Festival. A misty dark golden color. Sweet malty flavor with less assertive hops than the others so far in the festival. A nice change of pace.

Orange gold color. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity and sweet. A medium bodied IPA. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are floral and citrusy. A very mild and fruity IPA. Not very bitter. More like an ESB or a mild than an IPA. Nice balance. Smooth taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
