2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
OK, so this is bullshit, the brewwer does not let the bar know what beer its serving, victory ranch what? Bullshit. Mine says 14111 on the top of the keg, so what? Slightly hazy, pale yellow with a thin head. lots of IPA smells. Makes me think of B/O right after sex, wew. It fruity on the palate with a little rudeness initially. Odd combination. tatey but its fruitiness keeps coming thru. Just seems really fresh overall. One of the more behaved IPA, i’ve tasted. Maybe becaue its so fresh, on tap at the bocktown.

Pours clear gold with a medium white head...good lacing and lively. Aroma has mango and orange...some grapefruit. Flavor has mild mango but is quickly dominated by piney notes...a bit medicinal. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is very bitter...grapefruit/pine...a bit medicinal.
