blankboy (5950) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2011
Cask at Cask Days 2011. Beer #2 of festival. Pours a hazy golden-orange with a small semi-lasting bubbly white head. Nice hoppy aroma and flavour are citrusy, somewhat resiny and dry and the beer has that catnip/cat urine thing going on, in a good way. Also a good amount of sweet malt to back it up. Medium bodied. Benelux always makes solid beers and this is no exception.

Une petite tête blanche. Un liquide doré et embrouillé. Une superbe dentelle. Un nez explosif et frais de pamplemousses juteux et d’oranges sucrées avec des ananas et des mangues. Un agréable murmure malté. Des saveurs franches et fruitées : les houblons sont justement amérisants et extrêmement goûteux. Une bouche moyenne avec un pétillement modéré et une texture à la limite huileuse. Une finale ravissante sur des notes d’épinette et de fruits.

neuromatt (1097) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2011
On cask at Cask Days 2011 at Hart House, served in an English pint glass. Pours hazy orange-golden with a frothy, white head. The head remains and leaves a moderate amount of lace. On the nose, there are notes of grapefruit and sharp pine, along with pale malts, biscuit, grain and a hint of spice. The flavour is moderately bitter throughout with intense grapefruit. Notes of pine enter towards the finish, which is moderately bitter. On the palate, it is medium in body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a nice sharp bitter IPA with grapefruit and some flowers. A very nice brew to kick off the festival! 2011-10-30

JoeMcPhee (8313) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2011
Pale golden pour. Cask. The aroma has a lot of lemon peel and some bright herbal hoppiness. Lots of dry hop character and a heavy hop bitterness. A little bit oily and resiny. Very tasty stuff.

jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2011
2011-10-30. Lightly hazy golden body, small frothy white head. 3+ Modest hoppy aroma has a light leafy character, and a modest citrus melange. 7+ Flaovur is similar, modest green leafy hops are pleasant, modest bitterness throughout, lemon and grapefruit seed in the finish. Average palate. Enjoyable, quite drinkable but I’d like it even more with a bit more of the citrus. Cask Days 2011, Toronto
