Can, Wine Warehouse. Amber with a large frothy off-white head. Smells of grapefruit, citrus, pine, flowers. Tastes of vanilla, citrus, pine, maple. Damn, I like this beer.

Pours clear gold with a thin white head. Aroma has grassy/spicy hops and a hint of grain. Flavor has some spicy/grassy bitterness, sweet maltiness, and a buttery note...earthy. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is earthy/bitter and a tad buttery. Meh.

Tap @ Cask Cafe. Dark golden with ample foamy head and decent lacing. I get earth, rubber, pineapple, and white pepper- but all light. Grainy then bitter. A tad watery, nice bitter finish.

From the tap came a golden brew with a light white head. Butter, citrus aroma. Up front sweet malt flavor with a hop after taste that keeps getting up. Med bodied.

Thanks Grant. I felt like this IPA had some promise but it seemed a bit old. I rated accordingly. Grapefruit and a touch of pine in the hops with some bready caramel malts.
