Notes are from 5/26
It's a dark one, almost a brown-orange-red with a fiery flare in the recesses and a brighter amber gleam outside. The head is an off-white cap just shorter than half a finger, but it keeps up well and leaves behind pretty good lace.
It has a sort of hybrid tone to it, seeming to incorporate the earthy, spicy, woody/leafy bitterness with brighter citrus and not-quite-dank notes along with lots of yeasty esters giving off dark fruits as well as almost tropical under the danker/earthier stuff. There's also just a twinge of alcohol noted with every sniff and sip, but nothing too heavily ethanolic to enjoy the overall very much.
There's a sort of earthy dankness that even translates to the feel, though it doesn't weigh down the medium body or take away from the brightness that also translates. Crispness comes out strong on the palate from front to back, as does smoothness in the semi-dry feel.

Pours a deep clear amber with a creamy white head that lingers and leaves big lacing. The aroma is good, with some light fruit, a little hops and a bit of bread. The taste is pretty much the same but it doesn't have a huge amount of the depth of an English IPA. It does have a nice weight to the body and a good silky feeling. A solid English IPA.

Pours to a generous head and even lacing. Clear copper color. Aroma is whole leaf noble and PNW hops and crystal malt. Flavor is strong and balanced, a more British interpretation of IPA. Mouthfeel is medium to light. Overall a fine brew that satisfies without extremes.
Serving type: on-tap
