On cask at Tornonado in San Francisco.
Poured with a nice creamy one-finger head. Lacing is thin but each notch is evident.
Smell of piney hops and bread.
Taste is similar and two-fold--first the malt then the hops...the latter of which linger for some time.
True to cask form, carbonation is rightly low and serving temp is spot on. (sidebar: my jury is still out on 'flatter' mouthfeel when it comes to IPAs--it totally fits english style ales but American hoppy beers... a tougher sell to my palate; prickly hops seem to dance differently (and better?) on my tongue when more highly carbed methinks)
All that said, this is a very well put together brew.
