I had this on cask at Engine House #9 and it is one of the best beers that I've ever had. The pint came with a gorgeous offwhite head and a cloudy orange color. I didn't pick up any strong powerful aromas, slightly floral, sweet and a touch of wood tones, but nothing overpowering to the nose. Wonderful hop flavors with a lingering bitterness at the end but exceptionally smooth and mellow. Creamy mouthfeel and smooth, smooth, smooth. Did I mention it was smooth? The cask conditioning really added a character to this beer that is hard to describe but the results are perfect. If I run into Imperial Pale Ale again on cask it will be hard to pass it up.

Pour is clear dark amber with a yellowish white head. Nose is bready and doughy, piney hops and resin. Taste is doughy, some bread crust, pine and faint citrus with gentle bitterness. Body is rather full and creamy, moderate carbonation and a semi dry finish. Some malt sugars of caramel linger through a shorter finish.

Serving type: on-tap

Draft at a Thai place in Seattle. Copper pour with small white head. A very nice floral aroma with a hint of citrus to go along. Decent bite, floral flavors, with some nice malt backbone to give it a solid body for a pale ale. Middle of the road, but always excited to try the west coast brews I have never heard of. I would drink it again if available, but would not go out of my way here.
