Pours a hazy, copper/orange color. 1/3 inch head of a an off-white color. Good retention and great lacing. There is also some suspended sediment. Smells of citrus hops, slight alcohol, sweet malt, hop oil, and a hint of earthy malt. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of citrus hops, slight floral hops, hint of hop oil, sweet malt, and a hint of earthy malt. Overall, good feel, good body, and good blend.

12oz bottle into a pint. The brew appears a clear golden color with more of a yellowiah tint around the edges. A white finger of froth sits atop with patchy and finger-like lacing effect. Rising bubbles of carbonation maintain a thin film.

The smell is fruity with hops. Notes of herbs, pine and a little sulfur make themselves known. Some grapefruit rindy quality fills out the back. There is little to no alcohol noted as well as grain in the nose despite warming up. Not bad.

The taste is herbal with some grapefruit and floral notes. Throughout there is some astringency and a flavor similar to strong tea which is different and unexpected. The aftertaste has some pulp and bitter grassy rind elements. Not bad but some interesting stuff going on here.

This is a medium bodied brew with modest carbonation. A decent offering but not something I would seek out again.

Received this as an extra in a trade. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a nice crystal clear golden hue with a good two finger white creamy head that slumped down to a nice one finger thick blanket.

S - Lots of bitter pine, slightly dank with some light malty sweetness.

T - Fairly average here. Malty sweetness upfront followed by some pine bitterness. The finish is just lingering bitter pine, not too too crazy here.

M - Fairly average carbonation here. Nice clean bitter finish.

O - Overall this was an alright IPA. Was a bit too one note for my liking.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, best before 11/30/12. This poured a light golden color with a large off white head. The smells are nice lots of citrus and grapefruit with s little brown sugar and caramel. The feel is medium, the taste is good nice bitterness, citrus and balance.

Very good cask IPA. Not over the top on the IBU's but well balanced. Cloudy and dry hopped, this is a real pleasure to drink. Like most cask IPA's, this has absolutely wonderful mouth feel. The appearance is just a bit on the Orange side of yellow, plus nice and cloudy. Smell is a somewhat light citrus, quite pleasant.

If you can find an establishment serving this cask go out of your way to try a pint.

A: Huge head, lacing, lots of bubbles on the pour. Textbook example on how a IPA should look like.

S: Not much going on, just a bit of dankness, heavy pine, almost bordering on skunk.

T: Pineapple, candied lemon zest, big caramel notes. Resiny pine hop flavors shows up mid-palate.

M: Well balanced between the hops and malts here. Dankness really lingers after each sip.

O: A real good IPA that I can always find fresh. Strange that this is at least 1.50 more than their other year round beers, though.
