Muddled colors, whatever you get when you mix orange, brown and yellow. Aroma was mildly hoppy, but furtive for an English ipa.

Mild all around, malt sweet perceptibly. Earthy, I see what they were going for, pretty traditional. Recommended for that old guy homebrewer who is always talking about the 19th century and shit.

A cask IPA from Wynkoop. Which means the feels is gonna come directly from ingredients rather than gas. Nice Light orange/amber hue. Clear pour, soapy head--would like to see that a bit more full.
Aroma is slight citrus, but mostly tame herbals and light caramel. Definitely not an American version, packed with hops. This is a nice drinking IPA that boasts an enduring English bitterness. When well with cheese dip and pretzels.

Somewhere located between yellow, orange and light brown exists the color of Clash inspired London Calling IPA. The aroma was a little hoppier than I was expecting from such a beer. Wynkoop isn't big on hops, and this style of an ipa isn't big on hops, but this was pleasant. Had a fruity vibe to it.

Taste, really wasn't all that bitter. I realized that what I described in my notes as "caskesque carbonation" was actually because it was from a cask. Sweet, but not overly so malt was enjoyable. Very earthy mouthfeel. Very old world vibe, they really nailed this aspect of the beer.

I think this is a good beer, and definitely I would recommend to some of the beer world geezers who enjoy this kind of thing. Hey wait, I enjoyed this kind of thing. . . not exactly my cup of tea, but easily one of the best English IPA's I've had, and cask beer as well.
