Cask @ The Old Toad -- Great aroma, nice bitter accents. Pale ruby-gold body with a tan head. Smooth body and good taste, but not with the typical IPA bite associated with most. Smooth ending, very nice overall.

Cloludy amber with a dense clinging off-white head. The aroma is sweet and hoppy, citrus and exotic fruits dominate. The flavor is pretty nice with the exotic fruit coming through (lychee?) in the middle and the malt making a welcom apperance late. Nice malt balance. Maybe a tad thin but otherwise a solid nice IPA.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2007 Bottle. Amber color with thin head dissolving into a thin film. Not much on the aroma, I really didn’t smell much at all. Nice hoppy, citrus flavor. Crisp and a dry bitterness throughout. I wish I had another bottle to taste again, this was an interesting beer. Good one for hop lovers.

This is a great IPA. Full of citrus hops with a smooth body. Tried this brew because the distributor said I wouldn’t be dissapointed, and I wasn’t.

Slightly hazy copper appearance, decent sized off-white head with good lacing around the glass, aroma full of hops, earth & citrus, full-bodied & very drinkable, beautifully hopped flavors with an excellent mix & blend of malt, very nicely balanced, slight pine & citrus flavors as well, nice malty finish with just the right amount of hops in the aftertaste, this beer begs you to keep coming back for more, and I, naturally, get sucked in & keep drinking it, great IPA

Have had on draft, cask and in bottle. This is a hophead’s dream come true. Not too hoppy but just enough.Let’s cut to the chase...the answer is HOPS to all of the questions. They’re everywhere but in just the right amounts. Nice balance with the malt coming through just enough to prevent your tastebuds from being scorched off. Have to say that the cask version was by far the best IMO.

tommy8768 (120) - Litlle Compton, Rhode Island, USA - JUN 8, 2006
Pours a yellow gold color, has good lacing but not much head. Has a slightly metallic tinge to it. VERY fruity hop taste, also malty and citrus and some pine flavor. A little bit of bitterness in the finish. Kind of watery. A pretty good IPA.

eaglefan538 (3009) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 2, 2006
Poured an amber-yellow color with a small head. Aroma was slightly hoppy with some wood and pine flavors detectable. Mouthfeel was medium bodied with minor carbonation. The flavor was woody, malty and enjoyable. Lacing was excellent while drinking.
