on-tap @ the brewery

Nice beer - my 2nd from Steel String. Very interesting hop profile - strawberry jam more-so than the typical citrus bill. Light bitterness and moderate sweetness. Perhaps by accident, this was pretty enjoyable and a different brand of IPA

@ Steel String

Foggy copper-orange hue with a small, creamy head. Big, drippy patches of lacing coat the walls of the glass. Aromas of citrus oils over a decent bed of grain, lemon, and leafy spice. Grapefruit lemon, earth, and floral hop flavor with a noticeable malt presence that thankfully doesn't add much sweetness. Medium bodied, bitter, and textured mouthfeel. Not bad at all. Better than I remember it being.
