07/15/15 On tap at Coopers, Chelsea, NYC. Still big. Head is way small but there. Aroma is honest as it let's you know this has hops w/a capital H but won't make your eyes water or split you skull.

Ever stand next to a race horse? Big & powerful but managed. Well managed if it's a winner & this sure is.

01/08/14 From cask. I've been drinking this since the spring '13 & surprised I've left no notes. This is a superior drink. Big in every way. From the cask there is no head whatsoever but that doesn't matter. I don't like hops that are overbearingly applied so this exercise in restraint is just right. They are there, but whether it's the type or the technique the result is first class.

This is a must for any beer lover even if not an IPA fan. This will show what's possible in the right circumstances.
