On draft at Scotty's in Bloomington. My first foray into 3 Wisemen outside of tastings at festivals.

Pours dark gold with a small white head with little retention.

Some citrus on the aroma, but really very bland especially considering the style. Toffee malts come through a lot more than the hops. Smells more like a red than an IPA.

Again not nearly enough hoppiness in the flavor and what is there is astringent. The body is decent, but with such a low hop presence it finishes way too malty and also has a weird metallic aftertaste.

Medium bodied medium carbonation.

Don't know if this is a bad batch or what, but it was hard getting to the bottom of the glass. Way too malt forward especially considering it's only 5.0% with an aftertaste that doesn't make you want to go back for more. Hopefully this is just a bad batch so I'll give it another shot in the future.

Serving type: on-tap

I'm starting to gather that consistency and quality control are issues at this place. Remembered enjoying a pint of this at West Lafayette's food festival this past summer, so I filled up a growler before leaving the pub.

Came home and cracked the growler open. It looked and smelled fine, but the flavor was drug down considerably by a thin body and surprisingly syrupy back end. It seriously had the same bad sticky maltiness you get in not-so-great double IPAs, but without the gigantic hop and alcohol wallop to make the weirdness more tolerable.

The hop profile is still solid, and it was drinkable, but the Thre3e Wise Men have to start brewing more consistently--and not releasing off batches--if they wish to keep up with Sun King and Flat12.
