[Draft at the Bowie location] An amber beer with a thin dense off-white head. The aroma is nicely hoppy with notes of grapefruit - which leads the thoughts towards Cascade, but also a light caramel note. The flavor is nice with a good presence of aroma hops, slight notes of toffee, and a fine delicate bitter finish. I also had this on nitro, which made the aroma weaker and the mouthfeel more smooth.

GBBF. Cask. Served as ’Double Dry Hopped Venom Pale Ale’. Hazy amber beer, respectable tan head. Low carbonation smooth palate. Nice oaky vanilla Sorachi Ace - a little lemon. Mild toffee malt backbone. Light dry finish. Really nice beer - the Sorachi Ace makes it tastes oak aged.
