UPDATED: JUN 14, 2013 RERATE 6.14.2013: Tried the cask version, and once again the cask version seemed marginally better. The cask temperature and carbonation, combined with the citra dry hop, help enhance the flavor of this beer. Still mild, a little watery, but better. Tried to stay objective, but was pretty excited to taste the batch I helped brew.
