Had low expectations, and it met it. Weak IPA for sure, was expecting to see a one of the big swill logos somewhere.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask. At Volo Cask Days 2009. Hazy orange with a small frothy head. Aroma of damp newsprint, butter and stale dried flowers - wants to be sweet, doesn’t even hit that mark. Tastes of orange juice, paper, alcohol and generic herbal something or other. Thick-bodied, slightly acidic, ultimately a jumbled glass of meh.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Volo Cask Days 2009. You can tell they used alot of hops in this beer, the aroma proves it, there are some good citric aromas, that smell promissing. The flavor though is an oaky, woody, hoppy, mess. The wood just killed this beer, it does not go well with the hops at all. It was a sweet woody mess.

Cask Days 2009 @ Bar Volo, Toronto, ON: I think my Tweeted review is worthy of being posted as is, it says it all: Weird aroma of sour milk and almonds, fondant. Odd. Very sweet flavour, buttery.. Melted butter. Wtf? WTF indeed.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
2009-10-31. Murky golden body, near headless. Aroma is quite wood, giving the impression of fresh oak. Mild hops and fruit notes struggle to get out from below the wood. 5+ Flavour is similarly wood dominant, touch of vanilla goes with the oak here. Muted hops, dry citrus quick toasty malt before more wood. 6+ Average plus palate. Okay but the base beer does not really stand up to the oak as well as it might. Cask at Volo Cask Days 2009

2009 Cask Days at Volo. Not too tasty IPA, sourish, and avoided by other patrons, now I know. Average mouthfeel in body, looks OK though light colour. No aroma.
