On the darker side of the IPA spectrum. Nice oily head hangs around for half of the pint.
Aroma is soft, revealing a good balance of ingredients. A bit of granola and orange.
Indeed, the taste is balanced! Hop flavor falls on the herbal side of things. A bit of hay and grass counters the sweet crystal malt. The grain gives a steady base and rivals the hops on your palate.
Great mouthfeel ... medium carbonation. A fantastic ale all-around. I would not have identified this as an IPA, and I think that speaks positively to this brew.
Serving type: on-tap
