3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This doesnít really smell or taste like an IPA to me. Has a very dry pils-like finish. Otherwise the flavor is just a bit boring.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a rose tinted brown with a thick tan head.
Scent is candied fruit, hops.
Taste is caramel, coffee, black pepper, malt, herbal hops.
Kind of a rough sort of bitter.
Calling it an IPA may be a bit of a stretch, but itís not bad, whatever you call it.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tried this beer in the bottle. Aroma: citrus, floral hops. Taste light citrus and not quite there hop notes; not balanced to well.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 33 cl from Bier-Bienne (CH). Orangy-bordeaux, nice pale ochre foam and intense crackling. Franc hoppy aromas, grapefruit, herbs, pine. The mouth is mossy, bitter on a malted and caramel support. Notes of flowers, hay, grape, lemon, grapefruit and zest. Too dry and rough to be thirst-quenching.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This was hardly an IPA at all, how many flavours is it possible to pick out of this? Caramel is the strongest. Amber ale is more like it. Fine, but not worth the price. I could see this doing well in 2012 Mississauga or 1981 back sticks of BC, but 2012 Vancouver Island? Thatís like exporting English wine to Burgundy.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Churchkey. Deep copper pour with a small frothy head, good lacing. Flavor is very very malt forward, but still really nice notes of melon from the Nelson Sauvin, good citric Amarillo/Cascade influence, and a fairly dry finish. Nice stuff.
