On cask at Blanc Burgers and Bottles.

Presented in a 12 oz sniffer. This beer pours a cola-esque brown with a massive 3 inch head that leaves tons of lacing down the sides of the glass. It has a very viscous look to it but it doesn't come off in the mouthfeel. The one thing that bothers me is that it really doesn't look like cask beer. The aroma is very hoppy. No shit right. Lots of citrus. Orange peel and ruby grapefruit. The flavor is also very hoppy also. Up front hits big citrus pith. Orange and grapefruit. Underlying is a nice pine. The mouthfeel is lacking. Most cask beer has a nice creaminess to it. This doesn't. Finishes dry, low carbonation. Overall its good but I think dry hopping this beer negates a lot of the positive characteristics of the bottle. To me, this is why Stone's motto of "Throw more hops at it, its just going to taste better" is off. Instead of being a curious and complex brew, its just hoppy.
