3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. The pour was a murky medium orange with some yellow highlights and a small (1 finger or less) white creamy head that was somewhat lasting, finally receding to a large puddle with a small collar which produced some excellent sheeting of lace that coated the glass.
The aroma was of floral and spruce hops, a grain malt and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit).
The taste was nicely bitter and lightly malty with a mild sweet caramel undertone from the start, progressing into a nice bitter hoppy taste with just a hint of citrus at the end. The flavor was around for an average time proceeding the swallow with a mild bitter hoppiness left to linger.
Mouthfeel was a few steps below medium in body with a dry texture and a mild to medium carbonation.
Overall an IPA with a light maltiness and a bit of citrus, which complimented the hoppiness very well...

355 mL can. A typical orange-amber IPA. Neither the aroma nor the flavour are super strong or complex, but both are appealing. This is more about hops than malt, of course, and in this case, it’s light citrus and floral. Really drinkable IPA.

From a can. cloudy golden with white head. citrus sweet pineapple malt aroma. Flavor is a nice caramel malt and grapefruit hop with strong nice bitter finish. Food note: spicy food amplifies the hop bitterness in this one quite a bit.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
nose: definite sauv blanc [or cat pee] and a very honeyed apple tone of viognier, also a vanilla woodiness.
palate: very different from most ipas ive had. it tastes like a particularly pungent riesling or sauv blanc sparkling wine with strong resiny hops. bitterness is out of the way, just enough to remind you that it’s beer after all. finish is a load of pine. delicious.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml bottle. Pours a fairly clear deep gold, with a moderate off-white head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Plum, bubblegum and tropical hops notes mix with caramel and light toffee malt to create the aroma. Strong lemon and kiwifruit hops up front soften into melon leading into the mid-palate. This offers smooth caramel malt and a hint of a charry flavour, with plum hops giving it quite a soft finish. A very good IPA, with strong, flavoursome hops and a good malt backbone.

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Pours a hazy orange with a decent head, leaves a thin lacing on glass. aroma is more malty than hoppy. floral hops and maybe a bread tasting malt, finishes smooth. could be a session IPA. not too much alcohol taste. Decent Beer.
