This is Viking Braggot Company’s IPA inspired Braggot. It’s easily one of their very best.

Poured from tap to glass. Light amber straw hue with white head. Aroma is floral, honey, ethanol. Mouthfeel is nice with light body and medium carbonation. Taste is dry with nice bitter following. Overall this is really nice and refreshing without being watery.

I actually like braggots and Viking is pioneering this area. The battle axe I light, aromatic and a slightly drier finish than a beer. All in all it's a good start. Note: this review is a week after tasting, hence the lack of defining notes.
Leave your pretensions at the door.
