330 ml bottle from Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Pours a red-brown colour with a thick and full beige head. Aromas of citrusy and pine hops, and caramel malts. Taste is of bitter hops, with a sweet caramel to round it out. Medium length dry finish. Subdued for a quasi-double IPA, but still very nice.

Poured from a 33 cl can into a tall schooner. Aroma of strong hops and bread. Pours a dark orange carmel color with a huge dense tan head - too much head despite a gentle pour. Tastes sweet with a nice sour tang. Not over the top hoppy but not simple either. Good round oily feel, with an astringent finish. I liked it showing more balance than so many of today’s hop heavy IPAs.

From the can. Slightly hazy amber pour with a white head. Aromas of citrus and floral hops. Flavor is well-balanced with plenty of malts and hops. Very drinkable. The dude abides.

poured from the awesome 0.33l can. deep hazy amber color. malty and citrus fruity aroma, not too complex. malty taste again, with a nice bitter hop finish. Some characteristics of a red ale in there as well. Not too bitter though, despite the 90 IBUs.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draught) malty IPA, deep amber, clear, fine white bubbles, nice lacing. Nose is malty, caramel, honey, citrus peel, touch of pine. Taste of light citrus zest, malty caramel base, honey, cream, medium thick body, nice linger that isn’t
Too bitter. Not sure it compares to American versions but I rated it highly based on the fact it’s very drinkable at the abv. Tastes like a double but has abv of a typical IPA.

Can. Brown pour with tan head. Nice light hoppy aromas. Grassy and herbal, earthy flavors. A little malty for my taste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taster on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Mostly hazy amber color. Thin off-white head. Leaves good splotches of lace. Toasty spicy light oxidized aroma. Doesn’t taste fresh. Kind of papery and dry. Good grapefruit aroma, zest, light spice comes out after I get situated with this. Light tart taste, moderate bitter taste, light bit of alcohol. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. OK, gets better as it goes. Very odd up front, though.

Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball. Looks solid; malty though. A very slightly hazy copperish orange with foamy off-white head that has a touch of light caramel color to it. Smells of malt and bitter hops with a touch of soap and grain. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not bad, but underwhelming for the style.
