Double (actually triple) dry hopped version on cask.
A: Uuuuugly. Cloudy funky glass, and not just carbonation (which was perfect). Lots of inert fine sediment giving this some murkiness, but it wasn't gritty in the end, and really, it gave some heads up on what you were getting in to.
S: Hops. And then some. One of the most pure and unabrasive hop aromas. Clean rich, crisp, with some malty sugared notes and yeast hiding in the background.
T: Rockin. Just hops all day, but the serving style takes any edge off and lets you savor. Frickin killer. Pure unadulterated hop bliss without the stinging ramifications.Malts are there, and it does have a chorus line, but thats not the point.
D: Its cask, which never goes down crazy fast for me. But this would be trouble at, what, 8.5 abv? Jeez. Stopped at two because of deadline, but would have been drug out of there later otherwise.

3.94/5 rDev -4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Glass: Nonic pint glass
Appearance: a clear dark yellow with a large rocky white lasting head.
Aroma: a citrusy hop aroma.
Taste: was light sweetness at first with orange citrus notes and the finish was a moderate to heavy hops bitterness.
Mouthfeel: comes into the mouth light and thin and almost seems to thicken while it sits on the tongue. carbonation was pretty average.
A good IPA, I really enjoyed the flavor and mouth feel, although I felt the aroma was lacking.
