Pours light amber color with thin white head. Discrete spicy nose. Aromas are toasted malts, caramel, raisin, some fruits and herbal grass. Dry and slightly bitter finish. Less bitter than expected, but quite aromatic and uncommon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

reberiii (310) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2014 Bitter without much complexity. Golden pour from bottle, little foam. Bitter lemon soda finish. Bitter. Quote from my wife "One note. Lack of a depth of flavor. Run of the mill IPA. Smooth, though."

A very good IPA. It didn’t have the bite I was expecting given the name, but overall I enjoyed it.

From BA review on 2-10-12 - Hand pulled and served in pint glass Appearance – A deep golden color with a light slight off white head. The head fades with a bit of lacing on the sides of the glass and giving a thin foam film that persisted throughout the drinking experience. Smell – Piney hops are the most prevalent, but are mixed with some more citrus and a bit of floral hop as well. A very small amount of caramel can be detected as well, but is largely overshadowed by the nice hoppy aroma. Taste – Smooth malt of breadiness and sweeter caramel are up front, but soon become just a base for a nice potent hop flavor. Pine is up first and is the strongest of the hop flavor. A bit of citrus then comes into the profile and mixes nicely with the pine. These two flavors with the caramel malt backbone take the taste to the finish with a long lasting spicy hop flavor that lasts in the mouth for quite some time. Mouthfeel – As with most cask beers, this one is a bit low on the carbonation level, but yet soother and creamier tasting then its bottled contour part. It’s a different feel for the beer. I am not sure if I like it more this way or the more normal bottle/tap way. The cask’s smoothness kind of soothes the hoppy burn a bit, complimenting it nicely. But with the soothing comes some extinguishing of a nice hop flavor. It’s a tough call… Overall – A good brew to try on cask if you have a chance. Different flavor and feel profiles are definitely accentuated this way.

Peppery, spicy nose, hints of dry dust, pine resin. Spicy hoppy attack, not the expected west coast floral/grassy attack. very clean long dry finish. different but great IPA
