Pretty orange-amber color. Off white lace, not very persistent.

Mild smell, nice, clean, apricots.

Taste is very, very good. Mild. Bitter.

Mouthfeel is fantastic, rich, low carbonation. Happy mouth.

Finish is not intense, rather mild actually. Quite bitter on the very last edges of the finish.

Had a pint off of the 9.29.15 bottle, which used hops grown on the BBC farm as fresh hops in the kettle

Yet another Indy purchased beer that seems not at its best. Thick malts with earthy hop influence. It's an okay drinker, but not really impressive. A shame.

Nice head and golden color. Mild hop aroma. A pleasantly hoppy and balanced IPA.
