On cask at Max's.

The beer pours a golden amber color, with pretty good head retention and decent lacing. The nose is great, as I get considerable dry citrus, sort of flowery perfume aroma, and a hint of underlying wood. The beer is every bit as impressive on the palate, in this dry, hoppy, extremely drinkable APA. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a long, dry, bitter finish. Also, although the alcohol is obviously not very high, this beer doesn't suffer from a lack of flavor. Alcohol is barely an afterthought.

This is just an altogether enjoyable beer, especially for a hopheadd looking for a sessionable taste treat. Impressive.

Cask at Metropolitan.

Pours a cloudy pale golden copper with a large frothy cream head that faded to a collar with sticky clumps of lace. Leafy and yea aroma of citrus, vanilla and lemon, all hops. Much sweeter flavor than the base beer, mango, tangerine and orange dominate with a slightly bitter leafy and herbal finish. Medium thick, creamy body with soft carbonation. Scored this higher than Duckpin but prefer the draft version to this treatment.
