A - poured a deep straw under a thin little white head. Slight haze on this batch.
S - heavy malt base of grains and straws poking through in a teasing manner. Light floral hops punched through the hops and yeast.
T - the initial hint of sweetness is overcome by the complexity of all the aforementioned aromas. Quite nice.
M - nice little alcohol bite with a slower finish to it.
D - surely, I could session this one, it's just the slight dryness without the depth of the complexity is what has it pull a bit short. Still, solid offereing from IH.

On tap at the Lancaster location, served in a goblet. The brew appears a clouded yellow color. A finger of white bubbly cap sits atop and quickly fades to a thin film. Spotty lace sticks to the glassware.
The aroma is quite pleasant with a fruit and mild funk character. It is a bit cheesy with some pear and apple character. A hint of sulfur initially that grows a bit in intensity as the experience continues. There is a grassy to straw grain inclusion mixed with a hint of citrus towards the back.
The taste is spicy with yeasty phenols. Cloves upfront give way to mild fruit like apple and pears. There is a wheat grain inclusion that blends into something more in line with straw or grass. Some bubblegum notes evolve as the brew warms up and the sulfuric notes become more noticeable just like the aroma.
This is a crisp brew. It is medium bodied with a modest level of carbonation. It has an increased warmth about it moreso than you would expect for the listed 7% abv. Overall this is a solid saison, the sulfur could be cleaned up a bit to make it overall more enjoyable but as-is I would drink this again.
