4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Can from the LCBO, poured into a shaker glass. Pours a deep cloudy orange, with a thin head that hangs around. Aromas of pine resin and bitter citrus peel, floral hints around the edges. Bitter and hoppy, with less alcohol presence than the 7.1%ABV would suggest. Very sessionable, but a bit too bitter for my tastes as an everyday drinker.

A gift from my Canadian friend Melissa. Orange, clear, yellow head that lasts somewhat. Flower, heath, apricot in the aroma. Malty mildly burned bitterness that grows in the aftertaste.

Pours a cloudy copper orange color with a large beige head. Nose of caramel malts, earthy hops. Crisp smooth creamy mouthfeel with some lingering hoppyness. Light to medium carbonation.Quite mellow for an ipa but still very pleasant.

Arômes de pin bien trop présents pour moi, trop résineuse, terminée difficilement. Bue à Toronto en mai 2013.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Smells like an IPA. Super citrusy grapefruit. Orangey brown. Yep that’s got that back of the throat bite that I do not like. Not as bad as I expected. Actually drinkable.

Pleasant IPA goodness subtle and refreshing. Refreshing is not a term used by yours truly for IPA style generally.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Earthy aroma, bordering on yeasty. Appearance is a completely opaque dark-orange. Pours with a massive head that lingers, very heavy carbonation throughout. The taste is of earthy dark malt, with pure bitterness on the backend.
Although others note citrus notes, I did not experience any. Found it extremely lacking in balance.
Bordering on disgusting. Did not finish.
