A decent IPA on tap in the Tap Room, imagine that? IPA’s are not their specialty, so this is their best in the style.
Poured from tap to glass. Orange hue with creamy white head that settled but sustained. Aroma is nectarine, pine, resin, sugars, melon, white peppercorn, orange citrus. Mouthfeel is good with medium body and good carbonation. Taste is sweet up front with an astringent bitterness that dominates the following and persists through the finish. Overall this is an ok brew. The hops are a bit jumbled and not very balanced in my opinion and give a rough astringentness that doesn’t flow.
