Golden color with an orange head. The head was nearly two inches high. Not sure if that's typical or if the barkeep gave me a bad pour. Didn't expect that for a cask beer. Nice lacing down the glass as I drank. Aroma of citrus and pine, followed by a hoppy flavor with citrus tones. Taste is very hoppy from start to finish, but not overpowering, even when served at the appropriate temperature for a cask beer. A pretty drinkable beer, but with aroma and flavor just a bit above average for my tastes, it's not one that I would choose often.

4.25/5 rDev +6.3%

Poured into my snifter at fridge temp, with a generous pour, yielding a solid fruity looking orange color and a spiffy 2 finger white head that falls slowly. Perfect look to this one.
Smell is fresh grapefruit, lemon, and orange. Also detecting a peach smell, and maybe some pineapple. Very fruity and inviting. Almost perfect.
Taste is a very mild sweetness and bitterness at first, then the sweetness dies off and you get the bitter IPA notes. It doesn't taste as fruity as it smells, but this is a lower alc. IPA. I get wet hay, pine resin, and citrus notes.
Feel is spot on with plenty of carb and a light mouthfeel.
Overall I like this IPA better than alot of pale ales of the same alc content. Its very drinkable, yet its downside is it's quite expensive at 6.50 bomber.
