First had: on tap at the brewery

Poured a hazy bronze color with a small white head that retained as a ringlet, leaving dots of lacing on the glass. The aroma was money...very nice and distinctive nose of lemon-lime, with an appropriately subdued malty sweet base. Things kind of fell apart in the taste, unfortunately. Departing from the lush aroma, the taste was quite malty up front, grainy, followed by an unripe mango skin bitterness, that finished with a somewhat metallic aftertaste. If this was an IPA, it was a messy one. Body was light-medium, and other than the aroma, I didn't find this one to be very good overall.

On tap at max's last night.

The beer pours an orange amber color with fairly good head retention and lacing. The nose imparts some dry citrus, cereal grain and light malt (this beer smells as if it will be fairly dry - which it is). The flavor profile replicates the nose pretty closely, and while nice, a bit more hoppy bitterness would have been nice (the menu at Max's lists this as an IPA). Mouhtfeel is otherwise medium bodied, and the beer has a fairly crisp, clean finish. Alcohol is well disguised... I would not have guessed this was a 7% abv. beer.

While nothing extraordinary, I thought this a nice enough beer from this "new to me" brewery.
