Live ale from the hand pump. Well balanced English style India Pale Ale. Not as aggressively hopped as its American cousin. East Kent Goldings, Fuggles, and First Gold hops all added throughout the boil for a well rounded taste. Dry hopped. Alcohol strength is evident but not overwhelming.
Cask conditioned, very hoppy IPA. A real ale from the hand pump.

onceblind (9188) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2012
Clear amber with not much head. Pretty hoppy aroma for a British ale, though not American style. Grassy nose with some sharp lemon rind notes over a pale toffee undertone. Taste is pretty balanced between soft citric hop tones, mild bitterness, and a smooth malty undertone. Nicely assertive, yet balanced, although the body was a little thin. Also not carbonate enough, but I can forgive that, since its an authentic cask ale
