Notes/Commercial Description:
Ken Hermann has taken our exploration of – and adoration for – the IPA style in a completely new direction. With notes of orange peel and coriander, the soft mouthfeel reminiscent of a Belgian wit, and the hop additions of Simcoe, Citra and Cascade, he strikes a delicate balance between two disparate styles while showcasing the characteristics of both. It’s a refreshing take on a new style, and we hope you enjoy it! Cheers.

3.63/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

this was from the barrel series #43 bomber

eyes...
audible sizzle from a soapy white foam cap, paler than straw but not an albino, a sparse assortment of carbonation lightly populates the interior, lacing is ok, a nice enough looking brew

nose...
mild nose, some light dough notes and some faint hops, pretty subdued

taste etc...
one of the strangest carbonation signatures I have had in some time... in a good way, it is prickly and light but definitely makes itself known, a fresh flavor of mild citrus tempered with mild sugar, mild bitterness and just a clean over all finish

verdict?
my review does not seem to do this beer justice, while I would not call it great it would be a great go to when out dining or at the bar, easy drinking, has a pleasant character all the way around, damn smooth drinking brew, if you see it out on tap, grab some, I think this will be a nice addition to my summer brew lineup as a change of pace, nicely made.
