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
