Draught @ Tampa Bay Brewing Co, Ybor City, FL: An orange pour with a good white foamy head. Aroma is hops, lots and lots of citrusy and floral hops - inviting for us hop heads! Thankfully those hops arrive as promised, all kinds of them with a bready backbone and balancing caramel malts. A bit light but altogether a great IPA.

On tap at the brewpub. Copper-amber color and served with a thin head. Nicely hopped with plenty of grapefruit and a little resin and orange peel. Doughy malts provide more than just support. Crisp long-lasting bitter finish. Very good.

Growler provided by jcwattsrugger at Moosetoberfest, thanks John. Poured a slightly hazed orange with an average sized white head that quickly and totally disipated. Aroma of citrus rinds, honey coated toast, grassy hops and slight fruit. Flavor was excellent and loaded with lots of bitter fresh citrus hops. Finished super bitter with lots of carbonation for a growler. Good stuff.

Had on tap and on cask at the brewpub.
Tap: Nice flowery and citrus hops balanced pretty well with malt flavor and bitterness.
Cask: Similar, but the hops were more subdued and the carbonation was obviously more subtle and silkier.
