Served in a pokal at the brewpub.

Yeah, the meal's pretty much over, but one more beer couldn't hurt. This one pours a clear tawny amber topped by nearly a finger of dirty white micro-foam. The nose comprises mint, dark toffee, onion, and caramel. The taste holds notes of stark minty pine, onion, and a light caramel. The hops really have the caramel in a choke hold here. The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry-ish finish. Overall, a decent IPA, but the onion (Simcoe, perhaps?) and the dry-ness really doesn't help this brew out any.

On cask at NotLA. Poured into tasting glass.

A - Pours a golden/copper color, light cream-colored head.

S - Hops, light malts, off-putting medicinal harshness (not sure what this is from), slight skunk notes too, watery.

T - Blah. Just tastes "old"...light bitter hops and malts. Again, harsh skunked notes like this cask has been sitting around for a year or so.

M - Light body, light carbonation.

O - Not a good IPA at all. This is one I avoided after I had the first pour, and I wasn't the only one. No thank you.
