3.3/5  rDev -7.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: a nice brown color. slightly opaque but still some clarity. a small tan head that fades slowly

Smell: slightly citrusy smell at first it is kinda weird. followed by roasty malts.

Taste: roasty malts and a hoppy flavor. that is mostly citrus. i don't like the mix of the two

mouthfeel: medium body and lingering bitterness

Overall: i like the idea of a hoppy brown but the citrus just doesn't do it for me

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: brown with lighter brown highlights, nice sized head that left good lacing and a ring on the edge of the glass.

S: smells of bitter hops and sweet roasted malts. Some floral hop characters, but it's not fruity. Maybe pine.

T: good for a beer of its style, this has balance between the hops and malts.

M: heavier than a normal brown, it was also better carbonated and crisper. More of everything.

O: more of everything, especially hops, helped this out. Solid beer, though not quite up there with the Dogfish IBA.

Serving type: on-tap
