Cask @ 2010 ATL Cask Ale Tasting. Poured a clear, light copper color with a thin white head. Nose was primary notes of grassy, floral hops and secondary notes of grapefruit, caramel, and slight vanilla. Thin to medium body with soft carbonation. Flavor is pale malt with a good amount of caramel sweetness more or less balanced by the earthy Amarillo hops with some mild wood undertones. Smooth finish. Very drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: Handed over a clear, thinned out orange-hued body with a few large bubbles, but no real appreciable head formation.
Smell: Aromatic wafts of flowers, citrus, and powderized headache medicine, with additional notes of caramel, simple syrup, and vanilla-scented oak.
Taste: Mild touches of pale malts with little hints of sweet caramel. Punchy oak character. The additional dry hopping with cascade and amarillo added tastes of distilled citrus pith, flowers, and chewable aspirin. Fair amount of bitterness. Finishes dry, bitter, and staunchly oaky.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Very low level of carbonation.
Drinkability: All in all, a bit harsh. A little barrel aging can go a looong way when it comes to comparatively light brews. This was a bit much, to say nothing of the coarse dry-hopping.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On cask at ACAT 2010. Very apparent and awfully tasty amarillo hops as demonstrated by that fine bubblegum flavor. Grassy herbal aroma. Oak aging gives this a little more body and wood on the finish. A bit of caramel sweetness working all the way through as well.
