On cask at the Old Toad during their cask festival.

Pours a clear golden yellow. Small amount of floaties. Small half inch head.

Smells like citrus fruits and juices.

The flavor is slightly more muted than I'd expect. I don't usually love hoppy beers in a cask, and this promotes that for me. Slightly watery, with some citrus flavors coming through. Low bitterness.

Cask style mouthfeel- small amount of lively carbonation. Crisp.

Would love to give this another shot from the bottle or a normal keg.

EDIT:

Had a bottle with stillmatic2232 (thanks a million, man) that blew me away far more than the above cask version did, so I'm going to update my rating and provide a new quick review. Original ratings 4/4/4/4.25/4.

Pours out a hazy honey orange, with a 3/4 inch fizzy head, and tons of lacing on the glass.

Smells just incredible- tons of citrus fruit- lemon, orange, pineapple, with some grassy aromas too.

The taste is similar. Just pure Citra hop goodness. Not much malt flavor, just a ton of juicy fruit flavors, the specific fruits are mentioned above. Just goes down incredibly easy.

Light bodied, but full in flavor. Medium carbonation, crisp smooth mouthfeel.

One of the best American Pale Ales on the market. Simply amazing.

This is a beer that people love to hate cause of the hype. I smell, the taste, the body is just spot on for me. It is my go to beer. Every time I see it is available at the brewpub I make sure I run by to pick up a six pack. The art work on the box is awesome as we'll. I will always love thus beer and hope to never move out of the area

A: nice orangish golden color. 1/8th inch white ring sticking around on top with nice lacing sticking to the glass. Mildly hazy.

S: pretty tropical smell. Orange, mango, pineapple lime, mixed with a very balancing bread and biscuit malt.

T: follows the nose pretty spot on. Tropical fruits and a little mint in the background with a nice balanced bready and biscuit malt. Pretty hoppy but also pretty balanced with the malts.

M: pretty creamy mouthfeel with a lingering bitter finish. Pretty mouth drying

O: damn tasty beer and glad i traded for it. Full flavored and full body for a lower alcohol than most IPAs but definitely matches the hoppiness. One of the best all citra beers i''ve had.
