UPDATED: JUN 22, 2008 Sample from tap at the brewpub. Pours slight hazy orange/brown. Aroma of grapes, fruit and floral. Flavour is floral, citric and sweet. Goes into a caramel and bitter blend in the finish. Good ipa. Cask is much more lively in the aroma and strong addition on flavour too, also in the malt profile.7-3-7-4-15equals3.6br

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
A: Poured from the growler to the glass to reveal a perfectly copper colored beer with a fluffy off-white head.
S: Lots of great grapefruit and pine aromas fill the nose. There is also a hint of sweet tropical fruit, such as pineapple and mango, on the finish.
T: The same great fruits that were present in the aroma are picked up on the tongue as well, but perhaps not quite as intense. There is also a nice bitterness on the finish.
M: Despite the long trip in the growler, this beer was still very well carbonated. A nice medium body on this beer.
D: This is definitely one of the more hoppy and aromatic IPAs that Iíve had from outside California. A very easy drinking, one, however. And at 5.9% ABV, itís not too tough to have a few glasses of.
