shaker pint on tap @ the brewery

A year-round version of their fresh hop IPA - not sure how that works to be honest. A bit grainy, kind of a muddled hop profile. North Sound seems to be a little hit or miss with IPA's, and this was a whiff for me. Too much malt, not enough citrus. Refreshing and goes down easy, but certainly not begging for a 2nd pint

Grapefruit & citrus, with a bitter finish that clings to the tongue long after the glass is emptied...
