Bayonet ESB

On tap at Old Town, Greensboro, NC, USA.
If I were scoring this within style I don’t think it would do very well at all. Essentially this strikes me as an English IPA – by that I mean far too hoppy for an English style ESB, but not big enough on the hops for an American IPA. Strange beast.
Light orange pour (typically IPAish) with some head. A little lace. This would need to be browner for an ESB methinks. Some malts, but they are put in the background by the hop profile, which although quite small is still too big for the beer IMO.
Tastes decent and is drinkable, but not sure of what the brewer is trying to achieve here. A little bit of a misfit IMO.
