Bottle thanks to Dmac. Pours out a cloudy copper color with a small white head. Aroma is light citrus hops, toffee and biscuit. Taste is much the same with some grassy notes and a little bit of alcohol creeping in there again. Not liking these types of IPA’s, give me a West Coast style hop bomb any day.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught) cloudyh rich orange with creamy medium tan head. Nose of lemon, citrus zest, also oddly a bit tart! Taste is bready, orange juice, a bit tart of all things, pulp of an orange, not bitter, tiny hint of lemon zest, creamy finish, clean. Creamy body. Easy drinking, prickly carbonation. A unique DIPA that I liked a lot.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Medium amber body with some clarity towards the edges. moderate white head. decent head retention and a real nice coating of lace left behind.
S: Herbal, floral, citric hops. Somewhat tea like. Good soft orange, lemon notes.
T: Nice delicate hop forward brew. The floral-citric notes dominate up front, but are by no stretch of the imagine overbearing. Gentle caramel malts hold down the fort.
M: Medium bodied. Not as smooth as the cask version, but still has a clean hoppy finish.
O: Overall, I thought the cask version was just a tad better, but this is certainly a dIPA even non-hop-heads can enjoy.

On tap at St. Stephen’s with Papa Steve. Pours a deep caramel with a frothy white head. Aroma of piney resin, juicy citrus hops, slight toffee and caramel malts, and a hint of banana. Medium bodied with a loose, slippery palate. Agressive hop citrus flavors follow on a bitter finish. Like a Philadelphia Pale Ale’s older brother.
