3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark gold with a fluffy white head that laces the glass. Aroma is pretty mild, some pine some light citrus a little soapy. Some sweet honey malt flavor up front balanced by some piney bitterness with a medium dry finish. Medium mouth feel a little slick on the tongue, medium carbonation. I don’t think this beer survived the trip to Ontario, would love to try it fresh.

Bottle. Unclear dark amber pour with dense lasting offwhite head. Aroma has elderflower and peach on a sweet malty base. Powerful aroma. Taste starts with a kick of bitterness that subsides slowly leaving a balanced impression. Ends quite sweet.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Light haze, golden straw hue, light to medium head and great lace. Huge lift of malt. Biscuit and lightly roasted malt. There is some underlying citrus and hops. Very dry. Not sour although there’s a lot of CO2 and then high bitterness. Well attenuated beer. More of a East Coast or English IPA. Massive malt and flavor. A little more richness might help the palate but loads of flavor. Hops are integrated.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Pours a dark honey golden color and topped with a monster creamy beige head. The hop aroma is thick and potent; citrus, pine, floral, and tea leaves. Dank comes to mind. Piney and resin hop flavors at first, finishing with a little sweeter citrus and caramel note. Some bready malt notes. Lingering bitters. Lip smacking. Potent hops and a syrupy sweet malty thing that hints at big brother barley wine. Little waves of sheet lacing stack up on my goblet… time to sit back and enjoy; this is a solid IIPA.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours from 12 oz bottle a clear copper golden with a small white head. Aroma is quite resinous hop-heavy, with lots of sweet caramel malt back. Flavour of herbal hops, tropical floral notes, citrus fruit, caramel, toasted grains, sweet malt, and wet field grass. Overall decent DIPA, would drink again, but not super memorable. Would recommend.
