On cask at Prime 16 into a shaker pint.

A: Lightly-hazed, orange-gold body; one finger of fine off-white foam that doesn't really hang around, but leaves good sheets of lace. Solid-looking IPA.

S: Mellow, understated nose of grassy, floral hops and light, toasty malt. Not bad, but nothing special or complex.

T: Follows the nose, but with greater intensity - malts up front and a big, dry, herbal hop finish. Nice.

M: Rich, smooth, and creamy. Thank you cask.

D: Goes down with extreme ease. Dangerously sessionable.

Notes: Immensely better than regular on-tap Sea Hag IMO. Definitely worth ordering if you see it. Thanks to NEB and Prime 16 for providing such a tasty local brew on cask.

Cheers!
