I had 2 pints of this from a Cask at Doherty's East Ave. Irish Pub.
A hazy/cloudy orange colored beer. Frothy and thick head.
Hoppy smell with a smattering of fruit. Citrus smelling fruit.
The beer of course was at room temperature being that it was pumped from a cask. I enjoy this in a bottle and on tap, but the cask is so much better. Very smooth with a medium hop taste.
I really enjoy this beer. This is a great IPA from a cask. I could of drank many firkins of this Hoptical Illusion.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass
A- Coppery orange with nice off white head and lots of lacing
S- Aroma on this one is great. Sweet hops characteristics like floral and citrus flesh notes
T- Nice spicey hops up front moving to a sweet citrus taste and heading back to a piney/slightly shart/spicey hops note
M- Classic IPA... not too thick, not too thin
O- Solid IPA. Aroma is amazing and taste does a pretty decent job of backing it up

A: 1/2 a finger of head cover a amber beer. The head has nice tight bubbles. Fantastic lacing. Completely coats the glass.
S: Very slight sweet smell. Some floral scent. The nose is weak overall.
T: Sweet balances out the bitter. The bitter is totally subdued. There is a slight hint of a skunked taste. I can't decode the born on date. It is possible that the hops have faded - but I like the swet and not bitter profile.
M: Nice level of carbonation. Nice body.
O: I like this - it is a departure from the hop bombs that everyone is producing. There is a nice balance that allows the malts to showcase teh sweetness.
