PhillyCraft (5222) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2015
On pump at Tereaas, recommended to me by Cliff. Pours golden brownish color with medium to large frothy head. Aroma and flavor are dank pineapple, bitter pine, and a beautiful malt bill. Really surprised how nice this English cask offering was. The cascade and centennial brought some nice bitterness to the pineapple citra funk. Medium bodied. they had me at "industrial sized hookah"

Towey1989 (1510) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2015
Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A slightly hazy amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma is quite chemically of grapefruit, pine, resin, orange and some floral notes. Taste of bitter grapefruit, apricot, orange, pine and a hint of caramel sweetness. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A citrusy bitter finish. A hoppy but heavy APA, ok though.
