Came home with a bottle of this delicious IPA from the brewery yesterday but was also fortunate enough to enjoy this on cask, dry-hopped with Amarillo.
Hazy copper orange colored body and capped by a dense and thick white head.
Nice floral character on the nose. A bit of grapefruit as well. Similar experience on the palate. Dry-hop amarillo adds a good dose of citrus character. Plenty of bitterness, to the point that it works your palate pretty hard over the course of a pint.
Mouthfeel has a wonderfully smooth cask texture and served a bit warmer than the typical keg (not quite room temp I'd say). Low carbonation and a medium body feel. Overall, this was a fine beer to enjoy on cask, but I'm find with having in bottle or on keg just as well.
Serving type: cask

Poured into a tulip glass, best before August. Pours a hazy bright orange, with a wonderful 2 inch white head that leaves behind excellent lacing. Smell is tangerine, pineapple, mango, cut grass, pine, and grapefruit. Taste is all of that, very well balanced, loads of citrus upfront, with a piney grapefruit finish. Body is medium, plenty of life, not dry, and easy sipping. This is one of the finest IPAs going.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: Clear copper color with a beige head of about 3 fingers.
Smell: Very citrusy and mild alcohol smell.
Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Citrus and Hops are at the front with a good ending of hops that leaves a pleasant aftertaste that is a mild bittersweet.
Overall: Good beer! I will have this one again.
