Had on tap at the Ginger Man in New York City. Served in a tulip. Review from notes.
I've reviewed this on cask and in the bottle, this is my first time having it on tap.
Look: hazy orange with thin, cream colored head with great retention and lacing. Good.
Smell: much more resinous than I remember, but pungent citrus aroma as well. Smells good.
Taste: huge, piney hop taste with a bit of citrus, grapefruit and some floral, fruity hops as well. I can't detect any malt or alcohol, which is something I like about my DIPAs. Good.
Feel: medium bodied, crisp, hidden alcohol, and easy drinking especially for the alcohol content.
Overall: one of my favorite DIPAs and each time I have it, I'm reminded of why. Getting it from a freshly tapped keg was a real treat. Cheers!
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from bottle to glass. Nice head, maybe 1/4" thick. Wonderful bubbly foamy head with good lacing. Golden-yellow pour that looks delicious. Smell is citrusy and leaves you wanting to taste the beer as the smell isn't to strong. Taste is also citrus with a strong mouthful of hops. Presence is great not to bitter or much bite on the back of the tounge from the hops. Wonderful beer not only to recommend but to drink again and again.
