This beer is amazing. Dreadnaught has a serious competitor!

Poured from a bomber.

A: Normal looking IPA. Golden hue, perhaps a bit darker. Poured with a fingers worth of head that dwindled down to a small foam on top that left some great lacing on my pint glass.

S: Sugary and alcohol in the nose. It smells very sweet with strong citrusy hops. Maybe more of a lemon dipped in sugar. Such an interesting and strong aroma.

T: Awesomeness. Sweet and syrup up front. Pine needles on the finish. A huge malt flavor balances with a huge hop taste. I don't think it could have been done better with these ingredients.

M: Bitter peppery feeling while maintaining a creaminess in the cheeks and side of the tongue. A balance I love to see in an IPA and this is the perfect example of what I expect.

O: Love this beer, I think the bomber cost me $10 but I'd say that's a deal for what you're getting here. If you see this one don't pass it up!

When I order this beer I had no clue what style it was but I didn't care. It is my first Cask Ale! I'm now a huge supported of Real Ale.
I was handed a Reddish Amber IPA supporting a pillowy head. The creamy mellow body that cresses yet covers your mouth in a silk. The aroma was mostly pina coloda but there was so much more subtlety form the cask it was overwhelming. I had two pints but still can't pin it down. What I do know is I need more cask ale. Real Ale now.

Serving type: cask
