Bottle to Woodshop Snifter
22oz

Shared at Herbies party, not sure by who.

App- This was along the lines of please excuse me, A pee yellow after being a bit dehydrated. A good amount of yellows and golds. Really no head to speak of. More just a 1/8" of bubbles around the edges.

Smell- I was hoping for some diamond in the rough IPA from So.Cal. Not so much. More pure malts in the glass with a slightly earthy and grainy nose with some butter behind it.

Taste- This one was just better than average and really didnt do all that much for me. A slightly off grainy flavor with some grass clippings and a little unbalanced hops to it. A slightly buttery hop flavor as well.

Mouth- A slightly dense medium body with a medium carbonation. Way too grainy and grassy without a balance. A bit of buttery hops and grass clippings remain.

Drink- Better than average, but would have to have this on tap vs. bottle next time.
