Not overly impressed with this brew. It's very cloudy, musky, and tastes like they threw some fermented persimmons in the wort. Had it on draft in Indiana, at a clean pub not too far from the brewery, so no excuses.

First had War Mullet poured from 22-oz. bomber into tulip. This beer did not make me "want to grow a mullet" or "go to war," but is one huge but balanced IPA.

22 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

This bottle is fresh (less than 3 weeks old) and I have no reason to think it was mishandled at all. That being said, it tasted like malty IPA that was well past its prime. Very little hop presence to speak of in either the nose or the taste. Fleeting pine notes can be found, maybe even a hint of citrus peel, but I'm getting predominantly stale caramelly malt and no hop bite. This is only the second 3F beer that has been a let down, but I will most certainly steer clear of this in the future. If I hadn't split the bottle with a friend, it would have been a struggle to finish.
