look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5
Had in cask in a pint glass at Pinocchio's in Media PA.
2 finger head with pretty solid lacing that remained throughout the drinking.
Caramel colored, a bit dark for a typical IPA but not too brown.
It smelled quite hoppy and floral.
It also had a very dry taste from the Centennial hops which were very evident on the back of the tongue.
Also quite floral but minimal citrus flavoring and I didn't catch any pine at all.
The mouthfeel was quite weak, almost flat to some degree, this I assume due to being served in cask. Despite this weakness I believe the flavor of the IPA was good enough to merit a 3.5 overall because it's saved by the dry hoppiness.
Try it if you get a chance.
Serving type: cask

Served in a pint glass at the Union Brewhouse in Weymouth.
Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale orange copper color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Super frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Citrus, grassy, floral, herbal, and resiny pine hops followed by pale, toasted, and bready malts.
Taste: Same as above with nice mild bitterness. TTaste great and liking the low ABV. More towards the English than American, but very balanced and hoppy at the same time with more effort on the bitter side.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, light bodied, crisp, refreshing, and medium bodied.
Overall: I like this IPA a lot due to its hop characteristics and low ABV. Will be enjoying more of these now that they are readily available here in Massachusetts.
Serving type: on-tap
