3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Hazy light amber color, with creamy head. The aroma is quite anonymous for an IPA. The body is quite strong, the mouthfeel is smooth, but the flavor is stale, some malt and old wet cereals; it has a strong bitterness level, but no real hop qualities.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
murky red-tinted amber body with a quickly thinning and disappearing white head. strange burnt butter and oil nose. syrupy body; medium-high bitterness; dirty yeast phenols (black pepper and soil). saccharine sweetness throughout is the worst attribute. blah.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Amber, slight haze, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Hoppy nose, slight citrus peel and pine resin.   Similar tongue, hoppy, well balanced.   This seems like a straight forward IPA.   Enough malt to carry the bitterness, clean, with hop bitterness that is smooth and lingers quite a while after the exit.     Moderate body and mouthfeel.   This one was better than I expected.   All I can say is solid example of a good IPA.
