Around $5 at brick store for an 8-12 oz pour. served in a goblet.

a- it's a deep hazey orange and has lots of fluffy head. leaves nice lacing behind.

s- strong scents of hops, pineapple, orange zest, and spices.

t- very hoppy and pretty fruity. there's a strong orange fruit presence in this beer. slightly sweet with a little of the alcohol warmth going down.

m- its warm to cool, with a low carbonation, mediumish body, very smooth. i can't detect any alcohol until it goes down.

o- good beer. i had never had it before. this was also my first cask ale and i enjoyed it very much.

This poured out with a lightly hazy yellow color. The head was fluffy and white. The smell of the beer reminded me of lemons and hops mixed together. The taste of the beer was very nice too, it's got a very lively kick to it, lots of citrus in there. The mouthfeel of the beer was light and refreshing, and leaves a good bite on the tongue. Overall I found this to be a really good IPA for the summer time. I would drink it again if I ever happen to come across it down the line.
