3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Paddy’s, Ottawa, August 18. Pours a clear bubbly golden-orange with an average size creamy white head. Aroma of light resiny, oily hops, mild for the style, along with bready malt -- mild but nice. Flavour of resiny hops and bready malt, simple but pleasant. Medium bodied. Pretty good, it’s no "hopstravagansa" but it’s a decent beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not bad on initial nose for an IPA but the overall palate doesn’t do well as aftermath turns a little too astringent. Pours a nice cloudy amber with great creamy head and carpet lacing. The pillow of head disguises a good sense of hop aroma here though. Its too bad because initial aroma is this brew strong point. Some citrus here nonetheless, and a little malt. Finishes kind of sour and acrid. Tap at quinns.

"Yet another beer tasting venture with Metalchopz at Quinn’s Ale House! Got a fair amount of creamy head from this one, with a medium golden colour. Good lacing. Hops are strong, not too bitter but just enough. Aftertaste is pretty good with some citrus overtones. Very refreshing!"

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint at Quinn’s. 16AU12. Clear deep golden with a thin white head. Fruity, nice biscuit malts, toasty, some earthy, floral hops, a little resinous, not bad but not hop crazy. Medium body and effervescence. Decently fruity, some caramel, reasonable fruity, floral hops, decent fruity maltiness, bordering on cloying sweetness; off-dry with reasonable bitterness. Doesn’t live up to the name.

Pours amber-orange with a nice white head and lots of lacing. Not much coming from the nose. In the mouth I’m getting solid malth with a nice almost grapfruit balance with a medium bitter finish.
Nice enough, but pretty simple brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A golden IPA with a thin lacing off white head. In aroma, a light biscuit malt with light corn notes, berries and faint hops. In mouth, a sweet buttery malt with butterscotch, English hops, reminiscent of St. Ambroise when its very buttery.On tap at Wellington Gastropub, June 19, 2012.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyed at Quinn’s Ale house. Pours a clean golden colour with a little amber hue. The head is white and some soapy lacing is left. Mild fresh hop scent with caramel and grain notes. The mouthfeel is lightly dry in the finish. Again, mild bitterness from the hop in the taste, with caramel malt in the background. Decent, not over-hoppy, brew.
