Draft sampled at the brewery with TheDude. Pours a kind of a dirty amber. Aroma is citrus, somewhat weird, some caramel as well. Flavor is generically bitter, with no real dimension to it. Some caramel malt as well. Flabby bodied, low carbonation. Not a fan.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Orange jelly and gummy chews and pineapple and overripe tropical fruit American hop aroma with no noticeable malt presence . Medium body and sweet and highly bitter. Noticeable tutti-frutti esters and moderately harsh pine resin. Very generic rendition with watery, thin, limp texture, typical for West Flanders malt texture. Low carbonation and seemingly low acid give it that flabbiness. Some Simcoe/Citra-like onion and tropical pineapple mixes in with the orange jelly and pine resin hop core. Flavor-wise it’s what you expect of American IPA. The texture is where it fails for me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery, this pours a honey hue into the glass with a wispy head that leaves sudsy ring lacing. The nose is earthen and floral. Some caramel, bold bitters and light citrus flavors finish with a lingering hoppiness. Medium-bodied, it quenches a hot summer thirst nicely while providing a substantive palate. Nice.
