I had this beer on tap at dan's restaurant and tap house in boonsboro md.

Poured from draft - 10 oz

Appearance: Pours a murky, light amber. Lacing hangs sporadically on the glass. A small head stays is present throughout.

Smell: What a great smell! Sweet malt present as well as grapefruit, tangerine, sweet honey, and bitter hops(sorachi- one of my favorites!.)

Taste: The taste confirms what you smell. Hoppy bitterness and sweet malting ss blended well. Alcohol is present but blends into the mix.

Mouthfeel: Silky and smooth over the palate. High carbonation.

Overall: I am very impressed with this beer. Very well balanced. A definite favorite!

Serving type: on-tap

This was really not my favorite. I had it on tap at Victoria Gastro Pub in Columbia.
There was a burnt caramel/fermented peach undertone that gave this beer a medical property that I wasn't expecting. I looked great, smelled great; but after 20 minutes or so the bartender came by and replaced it with a Firestone Walker Double Jack--thank God!

On tap at Elysian's Elysian Fields location:

Pours an deep amber or burnt orange with an eggshell white head. Aroma is balanced with caramel malt up front and a nice citrus and earthy hop aroma. Taste followst the aroma nicely with citrus and lemon tangyness, herbal, grassy. A great single hop double ipa utilizing sorachi ace hops.

Serving type: on-tap
