Enjoyed at The Draught House Pub in Austin this cask IPA is a near copper
amber color, clear, with a big "bubbled" head that's somewhat sparse but holds with
good lacing. The aroma offers a pointed grapefruit/lemon hop, a bit of fruit
nougat and apple vinegar caramel. Very nice. The taste buds receive a more
flowery delivery of citrus hops with a sweet grassy edge. Plenty of bitter hops
while securing a perfumey overtone, sort of lilac-lavender or some such thing.
It's good and brings a solid medium bodied, heavy-ish feel with the standard
low carbonation expected of most cask ales. Very enjoyable.

Tried on tap at Crickets, 1 Mar 2012. Served in a shaker pint.

Medium sized beige head. Lightly carbonated. Clear dark orange in color. Aroma is light, malty and citric. Starts similarly, slightly citric with a sweet malty background. Medium creamy body, moderate ethanol. Well balanced throughout. Finish and aftertaste are moderately hoppy bittersweet.

Tasty and easy to drink but just a bit light on the hops.
