Red/orange and clean with huge bubbles of head. Smell is floral and fruity. Strawberry-y? Taste is summer fruits, grapefruit dryness, and a malty backbone. Doesn’t linger, and I wish it did.

3.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed from notes. On cask.
Pours from the cask with an amber color and an off white head. The nose is some nice malt with a bit of sweetness and fits in well with a bit of hops. The taste is a bit plain but fits hops and malt fairly well. Good feel and nice carbonation. Drinks well but there’s nothing terribly special about it.
Serving type: cask

20110305 hand pump at PSA. Beautiful creamy light caramel-golden with sturdy, tall khaki head. Aroma is a shock of American hops, orangey citrus and tropical fruits with some mild vanilla cake. Body is full, creamy, luscious, but with a strong smack of tangerine bitterness. I could ramble on about this one, because I’m really digging it, but is rather just enjoy. Very unique and expertly done beer, and seemingly perfect for the hand pump.

Saw it at Max’s but had a cask sample and tap pint at Pratt. Amber. Tap head lasts longer while the cask has almost no head. Soft hoppy flavour. Alcohol seems more dominant in the cask sample. Hop flavour is playful and fruity. If malt liquor were awesome, creamy and hoppy....this would be it!
