Draft at the source. Cloudy pale yellow color, small white head. Nice aroma of citrus, pineapple, grapefruit. Taste is more like a saison, with slight barnyard fruit and straw, but then the bitter finish kicks in, and we’re back to IPA territory. A very nice journey. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - APR 6, 2013

Flavor is very nice, lightly sweet, very spicy, white pepper, candy sugar, a little coriander, dried lemon peel, orange zest, hay, some nice zippy scallion. Assertively hopped without being offensive. Dry, refreshing finish. radagast83 (8052) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - APR 12, 2017
Draft at Jack Rose Dining Saloon for CBC 2017. Poured a hazy yellow-orange color with a fluffy white head. Aroma was toasted malts, roasted character, light citrus, some sweet grains. Grape, citrus, grain notes are pleasant. Really nice funky barnhouse notes that come through are pleasant, with a nice hop, lemon peel notes. Light tartness comes through. Finally after so many years I’ve had this one.

On tap at Gillys Fine Wine and Craft Beer in Rockville, MD. This is the version that was brewed at Union Craft (rather than at DC Brau).
Clear, golden yellow with a thin off-white head and good lacing.
Aroma of lemony citrus, peppery spice, pineapple and tropical fruit.
Taste of lemony citrus, pineapple, bitter herbal hops, tropical fruit and pale malt.
Medium/full body and medium carbonation.
I'm not particularly fond of the hop profile on this beer. It just doesn't blend right for me. That said, this is still a right decent beer.
