My Bottom Line :
Piney, floral hop notes are met by honeyed cereals leading to a peppery hop bite in the finish.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A creamy veil of foam tops the misty gold.
-Not sure if age was an issue with this bottle, but the aroma was underwhelming for an American IPA.
-The smooth carbonation and modest residual sugars make for a comfortable mouthfeel.
-This is definitely a good brew, but it fails to be memorable in a sea of very good IPAs.

Bottle.

Draft pour at beechers in New York. Clear orange and bubbly. Like your mom. White head. Spicy and hoppy fruity happiness. Well done

A nice floral sweet ipa. Nice hop aroma. Sweet with a citrus hop bite. Nice lasting head on a golden filtered beer. Very nice nose. Good IPA in general.

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...

orangesol (876) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Served on cask at Al’s 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 can’t. One of the best cask IPA’s 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.
