Golden hues shines in mt glass topped by a small off white head with plenty of staying power. Scent of citrus dominates the nose. Light caramel tries to balance the taste but this critter still leans bitter. Mouth is light and slightly drying. Lacings rings the glass. Even a west coast ipa would blush. Rated via BeerBuddy

12 oz. bottle. It pours a light gold color with a white head. The aroma has honey and tea with a little florals. The flavor has more herbal tea with some honey and florals. Lighter body and smooth. Mild herbal bitter finish. A pretty good English style IPA.

Botte via unknown from Justin D. Pours a slightly hazy orange, almost no head. Aroma very floral, some doughy yeast character, but with a resounding freshness. Body is light and well balanced, with a crisp, malt forward finish that evolves into a more astringent resinous bitterness. Not bad at all...

Served on cask at Alís of Hampden into a nonic pint. This one is 10 days old.

A - Pours sunkist amber orange with a gigantic two and a half finger head leaving thick, sticky, lacing down the glass.

S - Lots of strong citric hops blast you in the face right off the bat. Quite grassy with a bit of pine toward the end. Some caramel malt sweetness is faint but is present and helps balance this one a bit. Very nice floral hop nose.

T - Tons of strong, grassy, citric hops up front giving way quickly to a mix of sweetness from the malt and sticky pine resin that lingers long into the finish. Alcohol is hidden quite well but does come out a bit in the finish. Fairly well balanced until the finish when the sweetness begins to overpower it a bit. Very nice, but not the best I have had.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Very smooth feel that helps blend all the flavors together. A touch too resiny in the finish for my liking.

D - Pretty high. I knocked it back VERY quickly. How can you go wrong with a hoppy monster on cask? Oh right, you canít. One of the best cask IPAís I have ever had. Great stuff.

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle. Not a huge hops fan but this was alright,the watery feel levels out the overpowering hops very well!

Pours cloudy orange amber with low white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, grapefruit, light blood orange and tropical fruit. Taste is resin bitter up front, low sweetness, lingering bitter finish. Body is light and somewhat oily, soft to average carbonation.

Had in NYC at Saxon & Parole. Pours a gold color - lighter than typical pale ale. Wonderful nose - citrus, pine. Taste is hoppy, but not too bitter. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle to glass. Pours a mostly clear golden yellow color with an off white head. Aroma is sweet, grassy, light fleshy fruit. Flavor is a well balanced citrus and fleshy fruit bitter sweetness. Light to medium in body with a nice fruity finish. Slight bitter lingers. Very tasty.

Hazy orange-yellow. Fruits, orange peel, lemon, spice, hay, hops and pale malt. Good balanced IPA. Hay hits the tongue initially and quickly replaced by hop and fruits. Sugar content is too high for me. Medium body, mild carbonation.
