I have had this one on cask as well as out of the bottle. Neither wowed me, but I prefer the bottle as cask IPAs just come off flat to me. Pours golden copper, slightly cloudy, with a creamy white head. Funky aroma wafting up, with grassy hops, some interesting earthiness, light toffee, and weird yeast funk. Taste is bitter pine hops, very earthy and grassy, and not much complexity here. There seem to be malts making this hefty, but they don't really enter the flavor at all and it comes off as rather one-note. Slight dry, low medium carbonation. Not particularly exciting.

An off-white cap of head about a finger tall develops over this beer that's a very ruddy thick dark orange. Heavy foam stays and deposits very rocky lacing as it recedes.
The smell offers a great hops bouquet, intermingling citric orange and ruby red with caramel malts. It's leafy in the back and, on further investigation, reminds me very much of mint leaf.
Hops take center stage and while this beer isn't a bruiser it's undeniably solid. Hops are, again, mostly citrus and balanced well by malts sweetness but there's an additional unsual sweetness it takes me a minute to realize is like chewing on a spearmint leaf. It works in complementary fashion here. A bit of alcohol pulls through in the finish.
A well-rounded mouthfeel shows off some creaminess in a medium body. It's more smooth than crisp, but it does nip.
