Was the the brewery recently and had this with some food. Wasn't what I expected reading from the beer menu, probably should have went with the Spring Training IPA

Had this on tap at Blackstrap BBQ in Winthrop, MA....Wow! Blown away. Poured darker than expected, but had an excellent citrus nose. Grapefruit. well balanced and delicious. I'm a fan!
