3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
An orange amber ipa with a thick collapsing mocha head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with light grassy floral hops, reminiscent of the west coast, OK. In mouth, a sweet caramel malt with light resinous floral hops, grapefruit pulp, light cloying sweetness, but I was expecting worse. Can from LCBO.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
473ml can. Deep golden orange in colour with a thin white head, light lacing. The aroma is light hopped with lots of caramel sweetness. The flavour again has a bit of hops but the caramel is just too much. Sweet mouthfeel, medium/light body, medium carbonation. Finishes long, sweet. Too much caramel in this. Its close.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Canned at a blue jays game. Slightly hazy, huge off-white head. Aroma hoppy but plastic. The cascade flowery aroma is missing. The taste is fresh, not strong hops for an iPa but the finish is decent.

473ml can. Clear golden pour, soapy industrial-looking head. Sweet aroma, vague hops. Flavor is spicy, almost cinnamon, no malt, interesting taste actually, not the worst.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours nearly clear amber with airy off-white head. Mild but clear aroma of malt and fruit, with notes of hops and yeast and touches of needles. Bitter, hoppy flavour with sweetish notes of yeast and malt and notes of needles. Rough aftertaste with estery and mildly bitter notes. The best beer of the brewery’s hop series but still far from the ideal.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. A clear, dark golden beer topped by a small, dense, off-white to light beige head. The aroma is weak, quite malty, with bread and some caramel notes. Fruit caramel orange style too. There should be more bitterness I think, as it’s too bready on the palate, medium to full-bodied and semi-sweet. Some orange zest and a fruit caramel hint as well. Medium length orange and bread finish. A decent beer, but it’s too focused on the malts and not enough on the hops in my opinion. 150615

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
341ml bottle. Pours an attractive clear ruby, with a moderate light beige head, which lasts reasonably well without leaving much lacing. Resiny citrus hops and biscuit malt make for an appealing aroma. Citrus and mild tropical hops up front lead into a decently malty mid-palate, with biscuit and light nutty flavours. More citrus hops give it a nice clean finish. I might be going against the grain here, but I actually found this to be a pretty enjoyable APA.
