Nice malt backbone, with some moderate hope bitterness. Slightly more to the malty caramel breaddy side of classic beer malt. Was advertised as American IPA at the brewery, tastes British inspired though, enjoyable.

Kauge (1588) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 28, 2015
Cask at the brewpub. Clear amber with bubbly creamy white head. The nose is nutty, malty, somewhat fruity, not much in terms of Cascade - it’s more a herbal, grassy, earthy East Kent Golding character. The flavour’s malty, earthy, with roughish herbal bitterness. Too much perhaps for the overall lightness. Really soft on the palate with practically no carbonation.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6717) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured an orange-amber color with a large soapy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tangy and sweet fruity hops. The flavor was tangy, bitter, sourish and off with egg white an yeast. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.

Granite Hoppin Mad on Cask at Bar Volo. It is red malty goodness with a solid citrusy hop nose. It has a silky smooth cask  mouthfeel. The taste is bitter malts & citrus.

RhetoricalAns (846) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 28, 2014
Draft. Dark hazy copper pour with a fairly thick head. Aroma is nice and hoppy, milder fruit and malt aromas as well. Taste is great, big hop bite up front leading into a smoother malt back.

Ferris (12682) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2013
Draft - Orange and pine hops. Clear gold with a thin white head. Orange, resin and pine with a mellow bitterness. A well balanced mellow cask, but nothing special.

From Cask Days tent at Beau’s Oktoberfest 2013, Vankleek Hill. Clear pale amber with a short lived white head. Aroma is caramel, hops, butter. Flavor is caramel, toasty. Finish is somewhat herbal, earthy, metallic. Dish water. A hint of citrus...light body, null carbonation. Not so great.

On cask at WVRST. Hazy copper with a foamy head. Floral citrus aroma with caramalt characters. Malt and hop balanced out nicely in the taste. Super smooth and creamy cask mouthfeel; awesome. A good one from Granite.
