Thanks to jayli for hooking me up with this one. Pours hazy orange amber with a white head. Nose is malt, pine, tart white/ pink grapefruit, and a bit of apricot. Flavor is fizzy malt, orange/ citrus, and a bit of pine. Finishes with pine bite and apricot. Decent medium-bodied IPA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Cheesy, rusty, generic cheap IPA aroma. Stale and bland. The kind of aroma that gives IPAs a bad name. Flavor is mostly just bitter with too much crystal. About as generic as IPA gets.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This pours a deep golden color with a nice head. Aroma is of hops, some floral, and a slight citrus. Taste is of hops, malts, and a little pine. Has a bitter aftertaste. Not a too bad IPA, but really nothing special.

On cask at Nerax’s event at Novare. Pours a golden hazy straw color with a distinct piney hop nose. Flavors are very clean, crisp, and typical over hopped delicious west coast style IPA. There’s a solid malt backbone at work here, but it’s all about the hops here. This was a nice little cask.

12oz bottle. Below average IPA though still quite drinkable. Not as hop heavy as I would have liked being more on the side of a pale ale.
