craniumslows (5) - Georgetown, Texas, USA - OCT 1, 2015 does not count
IPA no doubt. The hops are up front, but not overpowering. The color is a very delicate brown when held up to a light. Served on a cask engine the hops become much more mellow and the mouth feel thickens up a little. Very enjoyable when looking for hops. A good go to.
