Killed the cask at Bierkraft for this one and it was well worth it. This is one of my favorite IPAs and I've never had the chance to find it on cask before. I'm not sure how to define the hoppiness/fruitiness of this one; it's not just big hops, but rather has a unique flavor that I haven't found anywhere else. Simply put it's excellent. The taste is delightful, but the color and smell are particular appealing to me.
If you like IPA's and hoppy beers, this one is worth finding.

Appearance is a clear yellowish copper color. This offering is slightly effervescent with a finger of fluffy head that seemed to linger forever and left rings of lace behind reminiscent of a nitro-tapped beer. The malt profile seems solid, if not remarkable and the hoppiness is good for a single IPA.
This offering does suffer from an odd trace of booziness which makes it less drinkable than some higher ABV DIPAs that I’ve sampled in the past.
Serving type: on-tap
