3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask @ Pizza Plant. Nose is caramel, citrus, candied orange peel, brown sugar, lightly lemon meringue. Sweet but nice in itís fruitiness. Flavor is brown sugar & orangey, grapefruity goodness. Caramel, a little almost burnt roast malt. Nice hop in the finish but overall this is maltier than it is hoppy. If I had to jam together 3 words to describe this it would be "mild citrus barleywine"

Draft at Teresaís Next Door in Wayne, PA. Pours a very dark orange body with nice dark haze, and a very smooth white head. The aroma is sweet hops. The beer is very smooth and has Flavors of citrus hop, candy, and maybe even wheat? Slight bitterness towards the end.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On cask at the Iron Abbey. Dark amber color with minimal head. Hoppy aroma with some caramel notes. Flavor was earthy hops with sweet malt and a slightly bitter finish. It had an interesting sweetness that I later found out to be maple syrup, which didnít overpower but rather made a nice balance of all the flavors.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On cask at Capones. Pours a deep caramel color with a small bubbly off white head. Aroma of floral notes, mild citrus, faint pine and sweet candied malt. Taste is much the same as the aroma. Very nice stuff. Mellower than the 90 and not as bitter as the 60.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On cask at the brewpub in Rehoboth. This poured a hazy, cloudy color, with a moderately large head - slowly settled while I took in the aroma. This beer was fantastic. Absolutely fantastic - nothing like the "75 Minute" at the Alehouses in Virginia - this beer isnít combined during the pour. This took the other "Minute IPAs" to a completely different level. It was perhaps the most enjoyable beer Iíve had in quite some time.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On cask at Rehoboth. I love me some IPA on cask, so right off the bat, itís got that going for it. Reading the description, I was hoping for more than just a blend of 60 and 90. Really, I canít say that it was. Still, a good beer made even better by being on cask. A bit sweeter than I wouldíve expected. Sweeter than 60 or fresh 90. Thatís the only flaw. I really coulda used a more aggressive hop profile.
