Way too hoppy, even for an IPA. Almost gut wrenchingly so. Would not get this one again.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
I had the Cask Conditioned offering at the brewpub in Delaware. Very tasty, my kind of IPA. Very light and floral with a bittersweet finish. Clear copper color with a white, somewhat pillowy head. A very solid beer, and like the Cask Conditioned aspect very much.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beer was rusty orange, with smallish head and a bit of lacing. The aroma and flavor was predominantly grapefruit hops. A bit more hoppy than the regular IPA, but not something I’d trump up as "West Coast" style...the hops weren’t all that aggressive. It was tasty, but reminded me more of a standard pale ale than something really bold.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2011 Draft: A light golden orange color, one finger head. Aroma is very hoppy. Flavor has a nice bitterness to it. Pine needles and orange...Medium/light texture. Over all a solid brew. I would get again, enjoyable. ****Update****On tap again/Cask at stewarts. Pretty much think the same thing as before, a well balanced ipa, not over the top or under hopped.

On tap at brewpub. Poured a deep golden orange with small head and light lacing. A large hop aroma. Tastes of bitter hops and a hint of grapefruit. Evenly balanced good drinker.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft pint shared with my wife at the brewpub. Hazy metallic orange with a sheen. Big mushy hoppy aroma that beckons met to dive in head first. But the flavor lacks the follow-on punch that I’d expected. Still a pleasantly balanced lightly hopped pale ale in the American tradition. (#3180, 11/8/2007)
