On tap at the Alibi Room for the 400th beer list event, pours a clear orange with a creamy white head. Aroma of piney, citrus hops, English malts, crackers. Flavour of English hops, crackery malts, and some feint butterscotch notes. Well-balanced with all flavours working in harmony. Good solid IPA.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at St. Augustine, Vancouver
Cloudy amber color with small creamy head. Nice aroma, fruity, with a sweet background, followed by a light hop sweaty trace. Round mouthfeel, good flavor of malt caramel and toffee together, very sweet for an IPA, followed by a very good hopping, plenty of fruits, tangerines, then almonds and some piney resins; long and balanced final, with accent on the sweet caramel.
A bit too sweet, but exceptionally good and fresh in any case.
