swing by bibbique for some awesome bbq lunch on LI and was pleasantly surprised to find this in nitro...yes please!

poured murky golden yellow w a finger of frothy creamy head that had nice staying power and left sheets of lace. nose is a nice soft citric. taste to match a soft bittery end. feel is creamy and silky as you'd expect in nitro. killer pale that hints at a single ipa.

I've been loving this on SingleCut's nitro tap lately. It's super smooth, of course, with a subtle toasty and nutty malt backbone. Then diverging from EPA norms, there's a burst of creamy lemon and citrus. So yeah, it's an American-ized pale ale with extra hops, but it marries the two substyles beautifully.

On tap at pub. The aroma is SO authentic English Pale Ale (like as in UK English Pale Ale), really spot on. Incredible smoothness with an herbal, floral, sweet earthy and mild citrus hop flavor. Perfectly enjoyable

On nitro at Rattle n Hun, NYC. Loks way better than what's delivered. Substantial head that leads to a coating more than a lacing down the glass. The nose reveals a VERY wheaty taste. I'm not a hops fan but you sure know when they're not there. Not that this is a sweet drink but it sure could use bitterness to create some intrigue.

Had at the brewery. Nitro pour - super creamy! The head was like whipped cream and held throughout with gorgeous lacing. Excellent herbal (almost like green tea) and citrus combination. Malt was present, smooth and light toasty with minimal crystal. About as satisfying an American interpretation of this style as I've had.

On cask at the brewery. They also had it on nitro and regular pour

A: Light amber haze with delicate white head, not too dense - a sign of proper cask conditioning

S: Toffee malt, light whiskey, sweet earthy hops, herbal. Again the word I'd use is delicate

T: Quite possibly the best cask ale I've had outside of the UK. They absolutely nailed the subtle and authentic aspects of a proper English cask ale. CAMRA would be proud

M: Smooth and full

O: One of the best offerings from SingleCut.
