3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On cask at the Iron Hill Newark "Cask & Ye Shall Receive"-Clear orange pour w/a slight lacing. Woodsy hop flavor w/traces of orange, citrus, banana, & dark fruit. Fairly sweet for an IPA & not real true to style, probably as a result of the cask, but very drinkable & enjoyable.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On cask at the Iron Hill "Cask & Ye Shall Receive" fest. Poured an orangey color with a weak head and lacing. The aroma was oranges, citrus, other fruity elements. The flavor followed, some tropical fruits too. As an IPA this thing was just way too sweet and the hops in need of much more emphasis. Fruity, malty character was a little misplaced over any hops. Mouthfeel was average to light.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cask at Stewart’s. Pours turbid orangy with off-white head. Nose is heavy tropical fruit, including grapefruit, tangerine, honeydew, and juicy hops. Tastes very hoppy, very smooth and juicy, with tons of grapefruit, pineapple, and tangerine. The cask smooths it, and the malt bill stands up to the hops masterfully and prived a wondeful balance. Another major-league winner from Ric Hoffman.

Cask at Stewarts. Aroma huge with orange and grapefruit flesh and seeds, perfume, spicy hops, sweet malt. Flavor not as explosive, but still great with all the same notes. Smooth, smooth, smooth. Wow.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On cask at Stewarts (I believe this is the 2nd batch of this beer and they toned it town a little). Pours a super cloudy orange with a thick white tan head (very pretty!). Aroma of heavenly citrus and grapefruit, some grassy hops. Flavor of citrus and tropical fruits, some crystal malt. Nice and smooth. This is a solid IPA and the best cask IPA I’ve had to date. This beer rocks!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My 400th rating! On tap at stewarts. Dark red in color, good head and lacing. Aroma of fruity hops. Taste is fruity hops along with a bitterness to it. Texture is average, kind of dry towards the end but still very drinkable. Glacier hops are not my favorite but this was a pretty good beer.
