On tap at the brewery. Had to order a few 8 oz pours while they filled my growler.

Pour is the standard murky dark straw color I associate with English malts. Smells like its loaded with Marris Otter malts. Traditional British malt is everywhere with no real hop presence, which is disappointing. Tastes nice and slick. Drinkable and light for the ABV. Not a bad thing at all, but I could really use any kind of hop presence at all.

On tap in a pint glass at Hal & al's on 10/1/11

Poured with lots of foam - well over a thumb's worth. Drops over several minutes but leaves plenty of lace; scattered at the top and becoming dense further down. Very cloudy. Dirty brown orange-sickle.

Earthy hops and subtle citrus hints. Hops are soft in the nose. However, malts are supple - lightly buttered biscuit, doughy bread and a touch of caramel. Malty but pleasant.

It does taste a bit hoppier. And snappier, for that matter. Sharp, brief hits of pine and citric zest and orange rind. Some caramel, toasted bread and grains. Bitterness lasts on the finish but is a bit too harsh.

Thinnish feel with a grittiness. Prickly carbonation and finish.

A decent enough IPA for the maltier side of things. It's always nice to see Weasel Boy show up in Columbus. Looks like Hal & Al's might have them regularly now.

Live review.

Growler shared with schwaeh.

Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A: Pours a hazy copperish orange, small off white head settles to a small ring. Leaves small lacing that sticks pretty well.

S: Woody, earthy, grassy hop and a nice toasted malt up front. A little orange marmalade and caramel sweetness back it up. Alcohol seems to be somewhat subdued.

T: Similar to the aroma, with a little alcohol present. Bitter for an English IPA, but not overly so. Bitterness does come out of nowhere though.

M: Lighter body, decent carbonation, smooth and creamy. Alcohol is well hidden for the most part, only showing up once in a while. Dry finish.

O: Not bad. Not quite as good as their regular IPA, but still a good beer. Only thing I could ask for is some better retention and a bit more aroma.

Served on draft at Bodega into a pint glass. Poured a rich amber color, with a 2 finger head. Smells very piney, and the hops are noticeable. The taste is a little sticky, pine notes, with toasted hints and lots and lots of hops. Kind of overwhelming. Mouthfeel seemed imbalanced and a little dry. A decent effort at the the style, but not one I'd come back to.
