tap at brewpub. Nice, smooth hop profile. More like a malty american pale. Nice, but would like more hops.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pours a cloudy dark orange with a nice head. The nose has toasty caramel, wood, hints of berries. I found the citrus character to be subdued for the style. There is a solid malt flavor with a drying, wooden hop sting. Some berries and peat are noted. This is a decent, clean, English leaning IPA.
