Single hop IPA using Nugget hops I believe. From a 1 liter or so swing top growler. Hazy, amber with medium head and poor retention. Tastes/smells sweet, soft and only slightly hoppy. Medium feel, low carbonation and very smooth in general. However, bland.
They make better beer than this and I have had it so I can't say what went wrong here. Regardless it will not stop me for seeking them out!
Tried it again on tap at the brewpub... this is a much superior beer on tap compared to the growler that had carbonation issues, probably a mistake at my end. The carbonation was spot on and it had the bite of an IPA in every way. The sweetness is complemented very well by the hops... very very fruity and very good.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a dark gold color with a one finger white head which has nice retention and lacing. Has a great aroma with citrus, pine, pineapple, and mango.
Has an outstanding combination of sweetness and bitterness with grapefruit, oranges, citrus zest, pine, pineapple, mango, and some pale malts.
Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Has a grapefruit and tropical fruit aftertaste. Well worth trying if you get the chance. I will definitely be buying more growlers of this.
Serving type: growler
