All in all a good beer.
Not nearly as fruity as I feared it would be, It was my last beer of the evening after a double boch & barlywine so my senses were a bit muted.
Nice aroma. Average mouthfeel, something I expect from this brewery. Not nearly as heavy as the 90 minute IPA they make.
I expected to be disappointed by too much fruit taste but was pleasantly surprised that it was subtle.
Definitely a crowd pleaser and I would order again.
Serving type: on-tap

A - Copper color with slight haze, small white head, extensive lacing.
S - Fairly muted, flat hop notes, malts in the form of pilsner coming through loud and clear.
T - Hop is mostly in the form of grass notes. A mild fruity note coupled with a cracker and grain malt hit. Turns bitter on the close, illustrating the serious hopping.
M - Given how bitter the turn is on the close, it is surprising how crisp the feel is. There is a gradual build, though, and it does burden the beer a bit you move into the second 6 oz.
O - This hybrid beer promises fruit, but though I think it is a decent IPA - nothing special, mind, but fairly clean and thoroughly hopped - the fruit is mostly lost. The only hint to its presence is a certain sweetness in the middle. Supporting role, indeed.
