I had this on Cask, second day.
Typical fresh IPA color; Orange/Tan with some light carbonation in the head. It started with some big bubbles but quickly became a think partial layer of fine bubbles.
Now here's the funny part. My first instinc of the aroma was that of cured meat ... almost like salame. I thought I was crazy. Then, after a few minutes, I realized I may not be nuts concidering this comes from the same people that make Pork Slap. So who knows! Hops? Maybe a little ... some light pine.
It starts out with a mild taste, followed by a quick burst of citrus-hops (not grapefruit though). The finish is a dry tart bitterness that's quick and mild.
There's a very mild acidity feeling to this beer with a smooth defined dryness. Despite the flat appearance typical of a cask ale, there was a nice fizzyness in the mouth.
Overall, this IPA on cask was drinkable as a session ale for the experience IPA fan. The dry bitterness may get in the way for some people.
I had two 20oz imperial pints.

12 oz can, no date
pours a clear golden color, with bone-white head. very good head retention and a bit of lacing. not much hop aroma for an IPA. not much in the taste either. a bit of malt flavor, and a bit of earthy hop flavor. thin body, medium carbonation.
either this can is pretty old, or it didn't start off great.

Undated can at 35 degrees into imperial pint glass
Aroma of apples
Head large (6 cm), off white, creamy, very slowly diminishing to a 3 mm layer.
Lacing good, many islands and reefs of small to medium bubbles
Body medium orange, hazy
Flavor begins with both bitter and sour overtones; not really sure what I’m tasting. There is no distinct fruit, pine, or flower taste; no alcohol, no diacetyl, no malt. This definitely leaves an unpleasant aftertaste with a very long hang time.
Palate medium, watery, soft carbonation.
This has a very pleasing appearance, aroma, and palate. However, the flavor is pretty bad, making me long for a lot of diacetyl or skunkiness. Definitely a Jekyll and Hyde experience.
