$ 5.83 (Including tax)/ alleged 16 oz pour (Actually more like 15 oz, $ 0.389/oz) at the brewery. Had with my meal of goat pot pie (Delicious!).
Served at bar reefer temperature, presumably in date.
Aroma – slight flowery aroma, but then with all the other delightful aromas wafting through the brew pub/restaurant, it was kind of difficult to be sure, even when horning the snifter.
Head – pretty much gone when it got to me. What was present was white and consisted of an irregular two to five mm ring (That’s right – I carry a linear measuring device when I go out - you may thank my OCD) and a thin partial layer.
Lacing – poor. Consisted of thin narrow partial rings.
Body – dark orange, hazy.
Flavor – starts bitter but not particularly dank or tropical, just basically hoppy. No malt, alcohol, nor diacetyl. No particular yeastiness or yeast phenolics.
Palate – medium, watery, lively carbonation.

This beer was listed at the brewery as XFIPA – experimental farmhouse IPA. It was a pretty good IPA but I’m not too sure about the farmhouse part. The server said that they had it in cans earlier but they had sold out.

Appearance 3.75, Aroma 3.5, Flavor 4, Palate 4, Overall 3.75.
