Poured 10/1/2017 from a 32oz growler that was filled at the brewery on 9/29/2017, into an imperial tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light golden brown color, with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains floral hops, citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of citrus and caramel. Then a strong but not over-powering floral and earthy hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is hearty and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, light-to-medium carbonation (but I believe it’s because I sat on the growler too long so I did not deduct for that), finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a solid 2IPA to pound down for a long time.
