3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear gold body with a nice frothy bright white head that had very good retention. The nose is a little light for the style, just a touch of citrusy hops over a dry almost crackery malt base. The flavor is thankfully a lot more bright and citrusy than the aroma led on. Still not the all-out hop bomb some folks may be looking for, but I find it pretty nice and give it some kudos for being delicate and subtle. The bitterness on the flavor doesnít exactly scream IPA to me either, itís pretty minimal, it has more of a floral and subtle character to it. The malt base is perfectly dry and light, letting what hops there are in here shine pretty well. Nice dry and lightly bitter finish. Light bodied and very easy drinking with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty decent beer, but it really doesnít cross that threshold in my mind where itís clear this is an IPA versus an APA. Itís so light on the palate that I would have never guessed it was 6.8% ABV either.

On cask. Pours a cloudy yellow with thick white head. Nice aroma from the hops. On cask this is very creamy which I liked. The cask also mellows the bitterness leading to a nice but average IPA.
