On tap into a shaker pint

A: dark bronze, a little hazy, thin head
S: faint hoppiness, some caramel malt
T: some sweetness and resin right from the start, and that's when it is at its strongest. From there, it's fine, but nothing special: some apricot and orange notes of very modest mellow hops balanced by mellow biscuity and caramel malts.
M: medium carbonation, sticky.

Overall: like this one on tap better than from the bottle. More of an English IPA than an American because of its round mellow feel, but the hops don't entirely fit. Even so, it paired well with my spicy Asian dish.
