4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2014 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Hazy yellow pour with a frothy white head leaving lovely lacing. Lots of citrus on the nose with a hint of resin. You can smell the bitterness that it is going to deliver. Has a very fresh feel to it. Almost minty fresh hops in the taste. Loads of citrus, pine and bitterness work their way over the tongue. The palate is consumed with a very clean and sessionable yet bitter pale ale. A pleasant surprise. Unbelievably good stuff. This would have to be one of my favourite beers purely for how good it does it’s job and how absolutely drinkable this is while still being packed with flavour

A fantastic Pale Ale. A rather pale brew with loads of American hops on both nose and palate. Very hoppy yet very drinkable. A smooth bitterness. Very refreshing and very tasty.

So fresh and bitter. Pours hazy bright orange/yellow and lots of fruity aroma. Very nice body and balance from start to finish. Top score for this style of IPA.

Tap at CBC. Pouring low haze golden with a thicker white head. Nose is ultra dank Simcoe hops with big mango, grapefruit, orange blossom, flowers. Taste is rich, mango, sappy, hop oil heavy. Aerated, hop oil resinous palate. Oh yeah! This one was a bombshell.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Poured a cloudy dirty beige color ale with a large white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of deep floral hops with nice green and herbal touch is really powerful and quite enticing. Taste is dominated by wonderful notes of herbal and dry hops notes with some light dry caramel malt to sustain the hops profile. Body is quite full with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. The hops punch is this one is quite exquisite with minimal bitterness and loads of floral notes approaching the Heady Topper level. Great stuff and hopefully not a one-off.
