From BeerAdvocate Magazine #74 (Mar 2013):

An amped-up IPA for sure, bordering on the Double IPA style with the strength of alcohol, plus a near blistering hop bitterness. Brewed with Chinook, Motueka from New Zealand and Bravo hops, which all makes for an aggressive but unique, or at least different, hop character. Worth the hunt for all of the hopheads out there.

STYLE: American IPA
ABV: 7.5%
AVAILABILITY: Year-round

LOOK: Clear bubbly amber, solid lacing

SMELL: Ruby red grapefruit, piney, mild tobacco, juicy, cake batter, Grape-Nuts, alcohol, lime leaves

TASTE: Very smooth, pungent, resin, tobacco, grapefruit rind, peppery alcohol, mango, bitterness, biscuity grain, dried grass, spicy, husky, lime pith, warming; hoppy, bitter finish

Impressive, dome-making head which is very slow to recede. It leaves plenty of chunky and webby lace on the glass. The liquid darker gold with a minimal haze.

Harsh, freshly grounded hop come aroma. Very green and floral, it smells like freshly mowed dandelion weeds.

The hop mimics the smell with more fortitude. It's difficult to get a read on the malt (regular pale) because of the strong bitterness, which intensifies during the swallow leaving an extraordinary long-lasting bitterness in the aftertaste. Almost astringent and very dry. Overall, this a love-the-hops sorta IPA.

Not too often you see cask conditioned IPAs. I am not opposed.

This is a pretty smooth ipa, and I think the cask has something to do with moving it in that direction. Nice pine tones. Slightly salty. Bitterness is minimal with a mild bite on there. Feel is slightly sticky. A nice drinker.
