Draft pint with dinner at the Brew Master Tavern in Williamsburg, where they make most of it, and where it was offered on the menu as "Buckwheat IPA."

a: Clear gold with a white foam ring but no head and little lacing.

s: Very mild citrus.

t: Hops forward, relatively powerfully so for a single IPA, but not much malt backbone of interest. Slightly thin.

m: Light to moderate.

o: Since it is local I wanted this to be better than it was. But it's not bad, the hops make themselves known. Decent to good, but not outstanding. According to the experts it was probably the wrong brew to have with my turkey dinner, but it worked well enough for me. .

Serving type: on-tap

Pours a light cloudy copper with a thin layer of head. The nose is only slightly hoppy. The upfront flavor is bready malt which is accented by a decent dose of hops on the finish. All-in-all, the body is a bit heavy for an IPA.

In a blind taste-test, I’d call this a hoppy ESB. That said, it is still a decent effort. If truth in advertising does not rank high on your list, give this offering a try.

Mix a six pickup. Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Pours bright orange amber with a light layer of foam on top. See through. Modest grapefruit nose, malt too. Lighter side. Light hop, thin malt. Citrus embedded. Grapefruit peers through. Very mild, but still good.
