Cask into english pint, Madison brew pub (from my notes): Big creamy bubbling yellow oatmeal-looking head over a mostly clear, orange-copper beer. Nice thick lacing. Smell is mild, but there are some corn sugars in there with the faintly flowery hops. Creamy texture (from the cask), buttery caramel malts followed by a metallic, salty bitter in the finish. The middle is kind of mealy before the hops kick in, and overall I didn’t really enjoy this as much as I wanted to. Some beers don’t benefit from cask treatment.

Reviewed from notes. On tap in Madison - August 2009. Pours a moderate copper coloring with a tiny half-finger head on the initial pour. This quickly recedes and doesn’t really leave much of any lacing behind. The nose is really light citrus hops with a bit of toffee backing it up. The taste isn’t much better than the nose. No off flavors, there just really isn’t much going on. The hops are really light and there is just a bit of light bread in the background. The mouthfeel is decent with a medium body and a smooth character. Drinks fairly well for what it is, but not exactly what I would call an IPA. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 11-13-2010

It poured a dark red-brown in color. The aroma was of pine and very hoppy. It had a medium body with a good texture and light finish. There were hints of malt with tons of pine hops in the flavor. Very good.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2010
Draft at Great Dane Downtown. Pours a moderately clear golden copper with soft carbonation head. Nose is citrus and fresh, quite American in contrast to the other IPA. Light tangerine and flowers. On taste, light caramel notes that balances the clean and smooth hop character. Earth and citrus comingle to balance. Pretty solid IPA.

Nice light citrus aroma, loads or caramel and some mild citrusy bitterness... medium to full body for an ipa but surprisingly light to drink. weird

marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Sweetish hoppy aroma. Golden yellow with a foamy off white head. Candy sugar flavors, very sweet. Finish is dryish and lightly bitter. A sweetly centered ipa.

9/05/2009: Great Dane Texas Speedbump IPA... Aroma: Plenty of Amarillo hops in the nose; orange, hints of lemon. Appearance: Copper golder, transparent; really soft and frothy off-white head, solid lacing. Flavor: Nice caramel/toffee maltiness with a hint of nuttiness; moderate level of bitterness that has earthy, citrus, and floral characterisitcs. Palate: Feels mellow, creamy and smooth in the mouth. Overall: This is a great IPA and a great cask offering; I really enjoyed it; probably the best of all the beers I had here...

Draught (CASK) at The Great Dane Pub & Brewing Co. in Madison (Hilldale), Wisconsin. Rating #64 for this beer.
