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 didnít really enjoy this as much as I wanted to. Some beers donít benefit from cask treatment.

Draft at the Great Dane-Downtown Madison, served in a 10 oz. glass. The imperial pints had already gotten the best of me. Downgraded. Pours a clear orange-gold color with a small, slightly off-white head. Notes of grass, herbs, straw, pale and toasty malts, and some citrus. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, bitter mouthfeel. Very fresh. Nice IPA.

Braudog (5574) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Draft at the downtown brewpub. This is a clear, dark amber brew with a medium, sticky head. Drinks quite smooth, if a bit metallic perhaps. Doubt this is a "winter seasonal" since I had it for July 4th brunch. (#5133, 7/4/2013)

Had it tap at the Great Dane downtown location in Madison. Poured a clear amber hue with a foamy head and a hop alcohol aroma. Bitter hop taste with notes of alcohol.

Draft at the Great Dane in Wausau. Pours a clear amber color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is lightly hoppy, some pine. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bready, pine hops, with a bitter pine finish. Underwhelming.

On cask at the Doty brewpub. Pours from 10 pulls on the cask and comes out very cloudy sandy/muddy tan that eventually dissipates into an unclear orangey-brown with a firm head. Naturally being from cask, great retention on the head. Aroma has resin and citrus and some pine, all somewhat muted. Taste is of sticky resin, sweet caramel, slightly bitter grapefruit and orange, and spruce. Sticky full body. A touch of an off flavor up front, but through the glass it became less off-putting. Finishes bittersweet and of medium length. Didnít love, didnít hate. Fairly easy drinker.

Draft at Wausau. Toasty classic sub-par brwepub IPA. Unfiltered cloudy orange-brown. Thin, oily head laces the glass. Moderate orange-citrus, relatively well balanced. Somewhat mild and watery, not so memorable. OK, but too watery to love. My numbers seem way too generous.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2012
On tap at the brewpub in Madison, WI. Pours a deeper golden, slight orange tinted body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is light with some sugary florals and stale hops with a thin, but sweet caramel. Flavor is really sweet. Lots of sweet orange fruits, some earth and lemon pines, thin caramels, and a slightly buttery toffee. Finishes sweet and fruity with a moderate bitterness that dries this lightly. Lengthy aftertaste following a light body and a light carbonation. Overall, this wasnít a very good IPA. Really sweet and fruity with a soapy hop bitterness and an off flavored caramel.

Pitcher at the downtown brewery. Heavy fruit flavor, very big alcohol presence, and something weird must have been going on with the taps because it was completely flat with no carbonation. No foam retention after the initial 10 seconds after the bartenderís pour from the tapper. Bitter at the end and thick bodied. Iíll have to try it again some other time to give it another chance.
