Draft at Arsenal the morning of Snallygaster 2016. Dark gold with small white head. Dank herbal hops with some citrus rind. Flavor off for me. solidfunk (9407) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 12, 2016

Gluepot (716) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2016
Another juicy, well crafted IPA from Bluejacket, this one with a little extra rind in the typically fresh hop profile. Quaffed on site at the Bluejacket. A deep orange/gold body with a well laced soft white head. The nose pops with juicy grapefruit and orange. A very fresh, juicy grapefruit hoppiness leads the taste profile. Dank earthy hops, orange rind, melon and kiwi, along with sweet bready malt, add to the experience. And edge on the hops keeps rising as the beer moves towards room temperature.

had both the regular cask version and a pacific jade dry hopped cask...both were very very solid. Herbal and citric, both, with light to moderate bitterness. The jade cask had a little more passion and tropical fruits but was not better or worse. deyholla (12205) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2016
