2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330mL bottle, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a hazy copper / golden with a small white head. Nose is super dank, with loads of herbal, pot-like hops, followed by some pine and resin. Flavour matches this pretty well, with loads of dank earthy, herbal hops, followed by secondary hop notes of pine and resin, and a sufficient dry woody bready malt backing. A strange one, with loads of pot and pine. There is also an unpleasant vegetal quality to this all. Iím surprised at the high ratings for this. Itís drinkable, but this isnít so great.

A golden amber DIPA with a thick lacing mocha head. In aroma, smooth caramel malt with faint fruity floral hops, a bit doughy. In mouth, a smooth biscuit malt with light sweet orange juice and floral hops, sweet honey grapefruit, nice.

Cask at Bar Volo. Floral hop aroma. Hazy coloured body. Above average mouthfeel. A good blend of malt and hops, aiding the palate. Above average DIPA.A sipper, still good drinkability for a 9% bitter beer.

Aroma is pleasant, milder than expected. Moderate citrusy hops, light leafy touches. 7+ Flavour is pleasantly fruity citrus, lightly alcoholic, sweetish orange infused malt core, moderate bitterness throughout. Very smooth medium to full bodied palate, soft carbonation. Very nice, dangerously drinkable. On tap at Brydenís, Toronto

Bottle. Medium orange, off white head. Piney and quite sweet, caramel and melon, with intense bitterness. A bit heavy handed for my tastes, but solid.

Draught at Indie Alehouse. Pours a deep amber-gold with a small long-lasting creamy white head. Lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is lovely, lots of citrusy hops, quite fruity, along with caramel malt. Fruity, hoppy flavour -- simple but oh so pleasant. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium bodied. Holy cow, this is great!!
