An interesting beer, an American IPA with German hops served from a cask. A malty body. "We've used this hop combination before in IPAs and love them.  These hops are not the traditional 'noble' German hops, but have an 'American' quality to them, but they are also a little different.  While they have some citrus quality, they also bring a tropical fruit, mango, strawberry, honeydew, and white wine character.

It does sound rather nice. Got some MB and Melon hops to use in a brew myself.

I have used MB a few times now, it's a great hop, but so far i just cant get aroma to hang around for more than 2 weeks? It's pretty bloody good in a lager [thumb]
