COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This British-style IPA features citrus-filled aromas and a very malty foundation that marries nicely with the bold hop notes that emerge on the palate and ultimately dominate its lingering finish.

Cask Conditioned. The beer is a hazy copper color, with a large frothy head that is slow to go away. The aroma has a hint of wood in it but smelled primarialy of caramel, and there is also a nutty smell this could have been caused by the cask though. THe initial taste is slightly sweet, and bitter, then it becomes hoppy. The finish is sweet but still bitter. overall it's a good beer.

Fort Collins Brew Fest 2003: The aroma and flavor were dominated by hops. My guess would be Cascade hops. Definite grapefruit/citrus notes.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2003 Warm, smooth and creamy malt flavors swarmed my palate. Sweet, bitter and perfumey hops up front; slowly built into a healthy bitterness. Somewhat crisp in the finish. Sweet/malt/hop combo is nice. Very drinkable and very tasty. CASK: All the great things as above, but with cask qualities, of course (soft carbonation, creamy, yeasty). Notes of licorice. Good stuff!

Ernest (6222) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2004 Draught. Body is light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (cookie), lightly hoppy (grapefruit, flowers), with a note of diacetyl. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/creamy texture, lively carbonation. Doesn't do much for me; light uninteresting aroma and citric flavor. Nice mouthfeel though.
