draft at Galaxy Hut - labeled "Grey Ghost" at the time

Served in a standard shaker pint, the beer is a hazed, somewhat muddy amber in color with an off-white, full head and good retention. Rich in malt character - lots of deep caramel and toasted malts, sweet with brown sugar. Too sweet. Earthy, herbal hops with notes of dark pine and muddled citrus rind. Medium to full in body with a moderate carbonation. Long, full bitterness. Too big and rich with malt, very earthy and muddled, not one to return to.

Others didn't like this beer as much as I did, but ain't that the beauty of beer?

Anyway, the nose was floral and bright as expected of an IPA. The taste was a strong hit of hops in the start, then it finished with a beautifully dry lingering feel. I loved it.

On tap at brewery:
Looks like an early consensus, about a 3.5 beer.

Clear deep orange, decent head.
Nose is a tad malty, but caramel and hops and a leathery scent.
Taste is a that of a sweeter English IPA.
Feel is a tad resinous and does have an American IPA dryness to it.

You aren't going to hate this beer, you also are likely not to love it.
