On tap at the brewery. Look is a medium orange and clear. Smell is light citrus. Taste is ok, some bitter slight juicy hops. More of a classic IPA than new bright hop flavors. Somewhat malty as well. Feel is good, with a decent alcohol burn. Overall a decent IPA but not remarkable.

On draft at Grand Rapids Brewing

Overall a very average and dare I say forgettable IPA. I wouldn't say it was bad and I do n't know that there are any better options there, but there wasn't anything that jumped out at me. You could probably do worse, but I wouldn't make a special trip for this or seek it out.
