beautiful beer. very happy for the opportunity to try this, and big thumbs up for tj's in paoli pa, for keeping this low key, no pub, no event, no mass hysteria. got lucky, read a blog from last year said they had it, called yesterday to find out it was being tapped at 4. showed up 320, no crowd, got a seat at the bar, no fuss, no muss, absolutely the way it should be. my computer distributor is 5 minutes away, and for that alone i will return to this fine establishment. and paid only $6.75 one tulip.
pours very pretty gold, i got the first pour of the tap, big head, took couple minutes to settle while i eagerly anticipated, the bartender topped it off to make sure i got the proper amount. smells fresh citrus hops with a nice malty presence in the background. big flavor, citrus hops again, bready malts, huge. with no annoying or off tastes. perfectly bitter and so drinkable, i could have had many more, except for the one per customer limit.
not much else to say, great beer, great bar, great experience. maybe someday the brewery will make alot more so all could try. but i wonder if it would be the same then?
Serving type: on-tap
