Bottle from the brewery, 12oz into a tulip. Listed at 5.9% ABV.

Looks quite different from what others have described here, mine poured a deep amber-brown, with an ultra-persistent offwhite head. Super creamy and sheets of lacing. Nose has some hop character, and a weird mineral/yeast thing going on. Some bread underneath. Not at all inviting for a pale. Taste has some grassy/green hop notes, and again a weird bready/yeasty and mineral quality to it that I can't get past. Drying and moderately bitter finish. Medium full feel, medium carbonation. Not at all a fan - not sure if something went wrong with the bottling or the brew here.

Huge amounts of head, grew impatient and spooned most of it out of the glass to pour the remainder into the pint glass. The Beer is a cloudy caramel color with a sweet, simple smell. Certainly tastes like an IPA, with two notes: simple hops and floral/nectar. I keep thinking it tastes like the flower on the label.

The mouth feel is very good, creamy balanced, not to bitter or alkaline.

Drinkable and hoppy, I would want this beer with cookout food, particularly sausages, brats, and spicy meats.
