On draft at The Local, Minneapolis.

Dark amber with off white film.
Resin and apricot on the nose.
Toast, chocolate, butterscotch, and burnt orange hops with some lean bitterness.
Medium, chewy, round.

Some odd notes, but a steady IPA overall. Departs from the usual IPA profile, but I’m not sure how purposeful that is - why the all the dark crystal malts? Not very English either. Mostly sessionable, if curious.
