3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep amber colour, clear, with a frothy off white head. Aroma is of pine and grapefruit with a slight caramel malt undertone. Taste is a little sweet up front but is quickly overtaken but an intensifying bitterness. Smooth mouth feel, lively carbonation, and medium body. A nice IPA overall.

Can from Pushkinwow, thanks buddy! Dark amber brown pour with two fingers of nice tan head. Aroma is pine, citrus, resinous sweet malts and tropical fruit. Taste is medium carbonation, citrus, tropical fruit, crisp clean finish with a mild bitter after taste. Solid.

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.

This unfiltered IPA has a beautiful citrus aroma and an amber colour. A very hoppy beer with a nice malt balance.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From 355 ml bottle. Pours a dark clear amber with a quickly disappearing white head. Aroma is strong floral and piney hops with grapefruit and mango notes. Strong malty sweetness. Light citrus and grapefruit notes on the tongue with a long strong lingering piney bitterness with a malty backbone. Hop forward with dominant bitterness but well balanced beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy amber pour with a frothy white head and clinging lace. Caramel, tropical fruit hop aroma. Tasty IPA. Fruit hop, caramel hints. Bitter pine needle finish. Not as good as I remember having it Toronto but very happy to have it on the east coast.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Pours a hazy deep copper colour with about a finger of white head that fades pretty quickly.
Aromas: Pine, hops, nuts, some citrus.
Flavours: Hops, nuts, charcoal, slightly fruity almost apricot like.
Mouthfeel: Thin with a mild amount of carbonation.
Overall: This is among the best IPAs I’ve had and something best appreciated by those who love hops. Just a ton of hop aroma and flavour but with other layers as well such as the fruit notes of apricot.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Elle est cuivrée et légèrement voilée, surmontée d’une mousse ambitieuse qui n’atteint pas ses objectifs. Très fortement maltée, des effluves de sucre d’orge en émanent et du houblon bien vert, pour ne pas dire herbeux. En bouche, le houblon se situe du côté des conifères dans sa plus simple expression. C’est sucré, c’est herbacé, c’est velouté et plutôt plaisant. Je n’en ferait pas une régulière par contre. (1165-020814)

On tap at the brewery - hoppy tasting flight. A clear amber gold, a nice balanced malty + hop aroma. Smooth and fairly soft mouthfeel. The taste is pine bark but pretty soft & inviting. Very earthy. A balanced bitter IPA.

12oz bottle that my brother found somewhere in town. Pours a orange-amber with a thin white head. Nose of caramel malts, a bit of grapefruit and something that reminded me of peppers? Caramel carries through taste-wise, smooth and flavorful. Pretty solid.
