3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a hazy golden orange with a medium off-white head. Nose if full of buttery, floral hops, with some dry earthy notes. Flavour is the same, with dry, bitter, earthy hops, a subtle floral kick and just enough malt to back, though still quite unbalanced is it has a noticeable astringency. Decent, middle-of-the-road IPA.

Maltier nose (for an IPA). Orange-gold in color with not much for head. Flavor is also malt-dominated.

Pours a cloudy pale yellow, thin head. Nice nose, lots of critics and pine notes. Taste is good but doesn’t quite live up to the nose.

Aroma and flavor and pretty lacking. Most of the flavor is just bitterness. I guess you could say grassy. Mouthfeel is creamy and appearance is pleasurable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bomber pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head with good retention and leaves some thin lacing on the glass. Aromas are of citrus and floral nature with some caramel. Taste is citrus hop bitterness with a caramel malty sweetness underneath. Medium body and adequate carbonation. This is an IPA that will satisfy most with its easy drinkability.

Sweet aromas or orange and honey with lingering bitterness on the finish. I didn’t love it, but am always willing to try any IPA.
