Had in a flight. The usual subtle grassy and citrus notes were present, but a slight soapiness and relatively warm--cask conditioned-- character make this lost in the back of the pack for the seasoned IPA drinker. So its not memorable in any regard- just average.

First, I admire them for thinking outside of the box with doing this as a cask-conditioned beer. However, nitro is supposed simulate cask conditioning--and they had 2 beers on nitro in the flight. If cask conditioned, it needs to be chilled properly. It was almost room temp. Vault's current IPA was nothing to write home about.

Had as a sample at SN Beer Camp

A-Pours inviting amber hue, slight haze with a white head with good lacing.

S-Very nice aromas grapefruit and floral hops.

T-Taste starts with malt then a lot of floral hops with a hint of grapefruit.

M-Mouthfeel is well balanced with a great carbonation.

O-One of the stand-out IPA I had at the festival.
