4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Wow! I gave this bad marks in the past but the one I had last night was awesome. Light orange-yellow in color with a white head that dropped quick. The smell reminded me of candy. The taste was sweet with fruity notes and a real bitterness. This was a pretty excellent beer.
Serving type: on-tap

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer pours a cloudy amber color that is a bit darker than many IPAs. The beer smells hoppy and maybe a little sweet. This coresponds with the flavor which has a fairly sharp hop character to it, but also has hints of sweetness and citrus fruit. A pretty good beer if you are looking for an IPA that has a strong hop taste but also a bit of a non-traditional flavor.

Cask. Pours a hazy amber, decent off white head. Aroma is pine, malt, some citrus. Flavor is caramel, citrus, pine, malt. Palate is medium bodied, mildly carbonated, bitter finish. Nothing spectacular, but solid.

Cask at Falling Rock. Hazed gold. Nose is strong hop notes (pine and citrus), sweet malts, and caramel. Taste is hops, citrus fruits, pine, pineapple, cake, and caramel. Body is medium with mild carbonation. Ends with bitter hops, more citrus fruits, softer pineapple, and caramel. Nice!

Cask @ Faliing Rock: Hazy orange copper color with an off-white head. Earthy and piney hop foward with some light notes of diacetyl. Very hoppy flavor and bitterness. Light on the malt. The dry finsih was very long and bitter.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask... Pre-GABF ’06 at Falling Rock Tap House, Denver... Hazy golden ale with a mid-sized, wispy, white head. Terrific retention. Notes of evergreen, grapefruit and mild toffee in the aroma. Medium bitter flavor. Medium-bodied and creamy with hardly any carbonation. Lengthy, tongue numbingly bitter finish. Not an overly bitter finish; the lupulin simply provides a pleasant Novocain effect on the tongue.

Had on cask at falling rock during the GABF. Excellent IPA, medium bodied with light piney hop notes and a wonderful cask-ale texture. Cloudy straw pour with minimal head. One of my favorite ipa’s of the week.

On the hand pump at Falling Rock. Super head for a cask beer. Hazy yelloworange. Amarillo apricot peach aroma. Citrus and earthy sweet flavors. No carb at all in the drink. Still good body though. One of my favorite cask beers ever.
