Is "average" a bad thing? The brewery averaged the ingredients from 3 months of production and came up with this. Pleasant balanced aroma of mixed hops and dark caramel. Clear brown with no head. Smooth and light in the mouth w/ good carbonation. Hops take over in the flavor department, with a metal/grapefruit finish.
