Tap at the Cask Bar & Kitchen, Manhattan - 01/03/12.
Reddish/amber colour with a very small head that didn’t hang around!
Sweet floral hops backed up by citrus.
Caramel malts in the taste with floral hop and a touch of citrus.
Medium bodied with good level of bitterness.
Decent IPA without getting too giddy in the ABV stakes!

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear light amber with a generous head. Nice aromas of floral hops in the nose. Taste is bitter floral, with some malt thrown in to balance it out. A decent if unremarkable ipa. I forced this one down dasilky1’s throat just because I felt like it.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Old Chicago. Pours a fairly cloudy orange color with a nice head that lingers a bit. Aroma is a nice mix of hops and malt. Picking up flowers, pale malt, caramel malt, citrus and tropical fruit. Taste is fairly malty for an IPA but there is some nice hoppiness throughout. Very strong bitterness in the finish, a little too much. Still a very nice IPA with lots of flavor.

can - Pours hazy orange with a small white head and a citrus hop aroma. This medium bodied brew has plenty of hops bitterness in the flavor with citrus and resin notes and a solid malt backing. Overall it’s a very good but not great IPA.

Pours a clear amber with a thick foamy head. Smells of resin, floral, herbs. Taste is sweet then bitter, maltiness up front followed by a sharp but not overpowering hop taste.

16oz can. Poured medium orange with a sticky, mostly white head. The aroma picked up earth, citrus, and grassy hoppage over soft bread and caramel malts.. a little warm on the back of the nose.. well-balanced. The flavor found biscuit and caramel maltage at the core, with grassy and citrus bitterness around.. sharp and kind of peppery on the long, grainy finish.. a bit harsh. Medium-bodied with rolling carbonation on the palate.. OK-ish balance, but it went downhill after the nose.
