Purchased in a flip-top 1/2 growler at the brewpub.

Poured into an imperial pint, formed a dense beige 1/4" head over the cloudy orangey copper brew. Head falls at an average pace, with sticky lasting lace. Aroma is sweet malt with ample pine and citrus.

Taste follows similarly, sweet to start, pine in the middle and through the close, where bitterness starts to show, and alcohol warmth is present. Mouthfeel is smooth, a bit low on carbonation, with good drinkability. Liking this one.

Tap at the brew pub.

Decent creamy fizzy head, dark amber copper red color.

Nose big spicy earthy hops, little citrus fruit and grassy notes, little sweet malt.

Taste starts with candy sweet malt, quickly into earthy spicy hops chewy and herbal oily like, fairly bitter, big spicy hop extract like, weird hop flavor, and bitter icky thing. Where's the citrus and fruit? Little alcohol phenol thing too. Finish fairly bitter, spicy earthy herbal hop lingering, little hop oil too.

Mouth is med bod, decent to lighter carb, little gritty.

Overall meh, nothing great, but not that bad at least.

Gone Postal IPA is one of ABC's rotating cask offerings. I had a 16 oz. serving in a standard pint glass.

A: Hazy copper orange unfiltered. One finger tight head dissipated slowly. Some light lacing as the level dropped.

S: Fairly typical American IPA - some citrus, pine, and floral, a little bit dampened perhaps because of the cask. Very pleasant and fresh smelling.

T: Some sweetness up front that is followed by nice tangy and fresh tasting hops that remained but didn't overpower the palate. This could be enjoyed with various foods for sure. A solid representation of the style. The 7% alcohol is well hidden (until I stood up!). It went down very easily.

M: This is the best part. Smooth and creamy - indicative of a cask serving. The beer flavor comes through without aggressive carbonation.

O: Very good. It was encouraging to see it served at a good temperature for a cask beer, somewhere upwards of 50 degrees. Samples like these make me want to seek out more cask beer in general.
