look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

On cask at the Moan and Dove, Amherst, MA... delivered in my Mug Club mug.

A: Pours a burnt orange/amberish hue (lovely to look at in the late afternoon sun that poured through the open front door), accompanied by a two-finger cream-colored head that is alive with small to medium carbonation bubbles. These bubbles dissipate quickly, leaving an intricate lacing design. Decent retention overall.

S: A distinct citrus-floral mix. The citrus notes are rather bitter, like grapefruit, and the floral expressions are like summer wildflowers and freshly mowed grass. Big hop profile, with only traces of the malt in there. The warmer temp is accentuating the hop profile big time.

T: Clean, balanced, mellow. A bigger hop-bitterness occurs up front, but it's supplemented by a malt body that balances out the taste incredibly well. A much more floral IPA than a citrus one.

M: Smooth as can be, with a nice bittering residue/bouquet on the back of the palate. Minimal carbonation of course.

D: It's totally a delight at 7% and the cask-conditioning retains this beer's floral hop characters, making it even more drinkable.
