Picked up an $8 growler fill from their downtown brewery yesterday.
A- Poured a bright golden bronze with a sticky off white head.
S - Very floral aroma with some tangerine, melon, and bubblegum coming through .
T- Very fruity upfront with tropical notes, orange, and cantaloupe. An assertive hop bitterness combines with peppery Belgian spice towards the middle, lingering into a dry finish.
D - I enjoyed this quite a bit. I love the level of complexity and appreciate the balance. I'll definitely be picking up some more next Friday.
Serving type: growler

Very good beer with a powerful punch. Not just any IPA. I had it on tap at a Karl Strauss brewery. They will occasionally feature it as brewers choice. The nice thing about actually going to the brewery is you can try anything on tap. Plus the food is good.
Serving type: on-tap
