On draft: Taste is really nice. A bit sweet, I wouldn't say too sweet though. It's a messy taste though, sweetness and hops are everywhere. The only complaint I have is the extremely light feel, almost watery.

A friend brought this back in a growler from Colorado to Missouri. Therefore, I think it was a little less carbonated than normal. Overall, this was a good beer, but seemed a bit sweet, perhaps because of the lower carbonation. I would like to try this on tap, at the brewery.
