On tap at Swinging Chicken Saloon.

Pours a clear amber, left a half inch white head that dissipated slowly, left moderate lacing on the glass.

Piney, sweet hops take the start, a nice toasted malt barley takes the finish.
Not bad at all.

Medium-light bodied, light carbonation, crisp finish.

Nice light IPA. Great for a hot day when you are not looking for something with a lot of power and bite. A tiny bit pedestrian, but I would drink it again.

First off, this is NOT a West Coast IPA. It is not very bitter, it is too low in alcohol, and the malt balance is more like an English IPA.

That said, it is still enjoyable. Grapefruit and pine hoppiness, with balanced malts. Strong fruitiness overall that is not consistent with American hops. Dry and spicy on the finish, but only low to moderate bitterness.

Enjoy By: Jul 2015

Poured into a pint glass a basically clean/clear golden yellow color, nice carbonatino, with a nice one-finger fizzy white head, with some nice sticky lacing left behind. The nose is slightly hoppy with some malt notes, very slight citrus. The taste is mostly malty, but with a very close maltyness, very slight citrus. Medium body. dry/bitter finish. Overall a tasty brew, but probably will not buy again.
