look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Look: Murky orangish yellow in color with a 1/2 inch white head and very good retention

Smell: Floral hops completely dominate the nose

Taste: Very floral hop note with a pretty solid malt backbone and bright citrus notes

Mouthfeel: Just under medium body and mildly carbonated

Overall: Pretty damn good IPA my only complaint is that I feel it lacked balance just a touch and I thought the malt did take away from the hop profile just a bit

served on cask at the blue monk in buffalo, ny into a pint glass.

served with a hazy honey golden glow color. a very nice, somewhat creamy retentive white head with lots of nice clingy lace.

a nice clean hop aroma. dank, floral, grapefruit citrus with a slightly sweet malt that evens things out.

smooth flavors meld with one another so nicely. a nice even bitterness throughout the sip and into the finish. again with the dank, floral, and grapefruit citrus hops. maybe a bit of pine in there, slightly peppery. just a bit of a light caramel, honey malt.

so smooth and creamy, slightly lower carbonation from the cask, gotta love it.

ive had this many times from the bottle. its not necesarily better from the cask, but it seems to meld the flavors together so nicely. almost a totally different beer. very easy drinking. good stuff.
