3.85/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Hazy blonde orange colour, light soapy white head, no lace. Smell is full of raw hops, lots of citrus and tropical fruit, mango, orange, grapefruit as well as some pine. Taste is really quite hoppy as the nose would indicate but there is a bit of balance with some malt coming out, light sweetness, a whole lot of citrus, orange, grapefruit, good bitterness the whole way through. Light-Med drying carbonation, medium-full body, a nice DIPA that did well on cask unlike others of the style, would order this again.

Cask Days 2012. This cask was brewed for the after party, which Ralph kindly brought in the Sunday Session with the scarcity of casks left (and pointed out to me to take multiple samples before it disappeared). Cloudy golden colour. A big and fun bitterness. Up front hops, a good cask and good drinkability.
