Pint from cask at Great Dane Fitchburg

A - Medium-amber in color, this had a massive head which shrunk over the course of five minutes, leaving behind beautiful off-white lacing

S - Caramel, piny hops

T - The front end was flush with floral hops and a touch of brown sugar. This was followed by a somewhat complex malty middle with the faintest hint of dried light fruit (apricot, maybe). The finish was slightly metallic, which didn't detract, and a generous helping of citrus hops. Not a hop bomb closing, but it was decidedly bitter and enjoyable.

M - Pretty light for an IPA; felt great all around - gotta love cask

D - I'm not sure what the ABV is here (maybe 6% range), but it was very drinkable. If I'd stayed for more than one, another pint would've gone down as smoothly as the first.

This is a very good IPA from the Great Dane, and I enjoyed it more than their normal offering, Texas Speedbump. I'll be back for more while this is available; it was only put on yesterday (6.3.10), so get down and try it while you can!

6.23.10 update - I had it again and wasn't quite as impressed - the mouthfeel and drinkability were good, not great (contrary to my original review). Still a tasty beverage, though.
