3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at American beer fest White Horse, London. Orangey brown pour with small white head. Hoppy, malty, citrus aroma. Very easy to drink, citrus, hops, pine, maple. Very nice ale indeed. Dogfish Head are one of my favourite US brewers.

A Mes rate: cask handpull at the Sloany Pony.
Johnny cask, what a great name! Light orange brown and just about holding onto a thin white film. Excellent aroma. Fruity as hell with some really good U.S. hoppage as you would expect but the slight caramel and maple adds intrest and complexity. Possibly a little less excitement in the mouth but that could quite possibly be down to the conditioning at the Pony, plus cask beers tend not to travel the Atlantic too well. All that is great about the aroma is here but it doesn’t sit quite so well. A little hot and slightly astringent but an enjoyable experience. To sum it up, good stuff but the some is not greater than its parts.

Cask at the pub in Rehoboth. Lovely stuff. Perfect soft cask mouthfeel, perfect serving temp, and overall perfectly quenching and satisfying after an afternoon of hauling kids around Rehoboth. A very different, and much better, animal then the blended 75 that is available at the DFH restaurants in the DC area.

Cask @ Barcade. Dark pour. This has a real nice floral hoppy flavor and aroma. Definitely my favorite ipa from DFH.

Cask at Barcade. Pours a mahogany body with an off white head. Citrus, pine and grass hop character with a dry vinous woodiness. Very floral hop notes, nice brew.

On tap at the brewpub in Rehobeth. Poured a cloudy yellow/orange color with a big white head. Aroma was citrus hops, some breadiness, some sweet malt. Flavor was very nice and citrusy with a good malt balance. This was a tasty IPA. Would not hesitate to order again.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2009 Cask at Whole Foods. Amber color, slightly hazy, low carbonation. Just like a cask ale. The aroma is beautiful, a mix of maple, bread, fruit, and citrus hops. The flavor is sweet, maple, fruit, and citrusy. Very interesting, and different for an IPA. The finish is a mix of citrus and resiny hops, very nice. An interesting experiment, and very enjoyable.

On cask at the Sunset in Allston. Sweet with hints of maple and fruit. Cascade hops providing some bitterness and pine. Rich palate. Really nice and dangerously drinkable.

Cask at Sunset. Interesting IPA. Fruity aroma. Grapefruit, cherry, and sugars to the taste. I enjoyed this one.

Enjoyed this very much on my last trip to DE at the Rehoboth beach brew pub. It’s a great beer and sweet to the taste the maple syrup shines through. Orange in color was a great sweet head. Very smooth and crisp. Great beer.
