Had this on draft as well. Slight hop aroma, not real pronounced but somewhat subdued. Still, enough to keep me interested. Hop taste on the first sip with a balancing malt profile that makes this drinkable in mass amounts. It’s that good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
hoppy resinous oily piny mouthful of hops with an extremely well balanced malt backbone that begs to be consumed in large quatities.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Bistro 7th IPA Festival. A dark golden amber color with a creamy tan head. A malty body with all glacier hops. An interesting twist in the flavor, slightly sweet, smooth, and not as assertive as others at the festival.

Orange gold color. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is citrusy and floral, a touch smoky. A medium bodied IPA. Malts are fruity (apricots and oranges) and sweet. Hops are grapefruity and floral. Nicely balanced. Smooth taste. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
