Cask at the brewpub, 6% ABV, 8-4-8-5-17=42
Hazy golden color, with typical cask head, frothy, very persistent. The aroma is less powerful but more delicate than in the draught one, with nice fruitiness, yellow stone fruits. The mouthfeel is greatly improved, being smooth, and allowing the toffee flavor and malt to shine completely; the hopping is strong and delicate at the same time, perfectly complementing the malts. Balanced final.
Lovely.

Draught at the brewpub, 6% ABV, 8-4-7-5-16=40
Cloudy golden to light amber color; creamy head. Lovely aroma of fruity hops, citrusy. The body is lean, it has a very good toffee flavor, the hopping is perfect, powerful but not oppressive, with plenty of hop resins and bitter orange character.
Fresh and excellent.

Dry hopped version. Tap at Brouwer’s Hopfest ’06.

This dry-hopped version, brewed just for the occasion, was the standout of my second evening at hopfest. It pours a hazy hamber with a white head and a powerful herbal dry-hopped aroma, mint and bit of flowers. The flavor melds a lovely herbal hoppiness with hints or orange and lemon, some caramel in the malt. The beer is lightly sweet but not sticky and always easy-drinking while bringing forward a big hop goodness. This is a huge winner.

On tap at Brouwer’s for Hopfest, pours a golden copper with a small white head. Aroma of citrus hops, piney hops and resin. Flavour of citrus hops, pine, pot, dry zesty fruits and orange peel. Dry, lightly bitter and fruity. Great.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 13, 2010
Tap at Brouwer’s. Clear orange with a big, foamy white head. Left sheets of lacing as I drank. Aroma hoppy, citrusy, and floral, not unlike orange blossom. Has a a little bit of toasty, caramelly malt, but leans more towards the hop bitterness and aromatics and is only sweet enough to balance the hop character. More of the floral and orange notes make themselves known as you drink it. There’s a touch of herbal hempiness, but the orange blossom character is much more prominant. Has a nice, bitter, citrus rind finish. A standout Northwest IPA.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. A interesting nose of floral and funky hop notes- very much like a skunky bag of marijuana. Light bitter flavor, herbal and fruity. Very nice.

From the Jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center 13/10/2007 Fruity hop aroma. Golden coloured slightly hazy in appearance fruity and very hoppy. Creamy on the palate with a crisp and bitter finish.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 14, 2010
Cask @ Big Time. Cloudy sandy blonde colour with a thin head. Syrupy, slightly herbal hop character. Abundant dry hops in the cask win the aroma a nice score. Spicy, very herbal hop character. Some malt stickiness but only a little bit of pale malt character. Clean, light IPA. Really thick sheet of lacing down the glass, too.

Pint @ Naked City Taphouse. Clean-tasting IPA that takes nothing off the table. Looked a little orange which accounts for the lower Appearance rating. Smelled like fresh whole hop leaves and tasted refreshing with just enough pale malt to keep ot from being too bitter a liquid.
