The Comet had this on tap. Last I heard this was still in experimental stages but that was a couple months ago when I was able to sneak a sample with Peanut.

A: Pours dark amber, definitely a bit too dark for the style. Short head on the pour. Some lacing.

S: Light citrus aroma with a touch of resin. Very malty with some baking spices.

T/M: Taste is much the same. The spices come out even more, too much. Lots of sweetness, a bit of caramel. Hops definitely aren't dominant and the malts just overpower them. Body is medium light aided by strong carbonation. No lingering bitterness.

D: Drinks decently. This actually tastes very similar, if not dead on, what I tried with Peanut. We both agreed that it was a bit dark and definitely too sweet. Hops really need to pop more and they might if the malt bill is toned down quite a bit. Not horrible at all... just not an IPA.
