Had this on tap last night at Founders.

Didn't take notes on this so here is goes:

Color was of an average IPA with a light golden coler with a decent head that was barely off-white.

It smelled like Cascade hops with a little malt and was not that special.

It tasted like an IPA that did not evoke a special reaction. A ho-hum attempt at an IPA.

Not bad, just not special by any means.

A straight cascade hopped version of their regular harvest ale. Had on tap at Founders, live review.

A - Looks like harvest ale. About an inch head on the pour which laces nicely.

S - Yep, its an IPA. A bit more intense citrus than the other wet hop harvest. Sweeter than a more hoppy tone.

T - Bitter up front, but a nice citrus trail off. This is an excellent experiment, but I think I enjoy the regular version more. Seems more complex.

M - Weirdly drying. Almost champagne like. Not really what I want in an IPA, but not bad, just odd to style.

O - It is a decent one off. Welcome addition at the pub. I am glad to try this, wouldn't mind seeing it in bottles as well.
