If I heard correctly, this IPA offered on cask at Naked City's brewpub opening was double dry-hopped, possibly with fresh hops, and is not the same recipe as their other beers. It made a favorable impression on me as the first beer I would consume from a new brewpub on the day they emerged as a craft brewery. Nice work.

The ale emits an apricot-like aroma intermixed with a bouquet of bright floral hops. The floral elements soon recede and vanish altogether, supplanted by a wet burlap smell I could accommodate. As best I could tell in the relatively dim light of the bar, the beer's appearance is a strange opaque hue of green-gray with a reasonable measure of lace.

The taste hints at some sort of root spice - perhaps ginger - then assumes the character of warm lemon. A light swirl of yeast residues remains at the bottom of the pint. The mouthfeel was properly agile as a cask pour should be.

Curious in some respects for the low flocculence and dense opacity. But the bottom line is that I'd easily drink it again.
