On tap for Philly Beer Week. Served on tap in a goblet/wine glass.

Pours a honey-orange with no head or lacing of any kind. Could have mistaken it for liquor. Nice aromas of barnyard and funk; I'm looking forward to it. The taste doesn't match the nose at all. Bitter like an IPA with just a touch of funk. Mouthfeel is bright and bubbly like a saison, but that just makes the IPA flavor more confusing.

This is a textbook case for those who feel hops have gotten out of hand.

Nice, thin headed beer with pungent aromas. Long, stingy aftertaste.
