On cask at Brixx Pizza in Chapel Hill served in a standard pint glass a nice hazy orange with a decent off white head that lasts as a thin layer and leaves decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is a nice amount of pine hops in front of caramel malts. The taste is a nice kick of bitter pine hops with a sturdy caramel malt backbone providing nice balance. The beer is medium bodied with a nice hint of dryness. This is a very enjoyable cask IPA, one I was glad to go a bit out of my way for!

Poured from a pint can into a tall tulip.
A - Nice amber color with about a finger of light tan soap bubble head. Short retention and sticky lacing.
S - Nice and balanced citusy hop aroma.
T - Tastes like an IPA. Bright and citrusy up front with a bitter hop finish. Nothing life changing or Earth shattering, but not bad by any means.
M - Crisp with a nice dry finish.
O - A good IPA. Nothing more, nothing less.

Transparent orange with a single finger of fuzzy head. Not a particularly strong scent but a pleasant fruitiness. Probably the beers strongest trait. Not a harsh bitterness but reminds me of tree bark. A bit sour. Not so fruity for an IPA. Dry mouthfeel. Decent but odd.
