3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very fruity aroma like grapefruit juice, still appetizing to my nose. Modest head and slightly foggy gold body. Nice mix of hops layered on the flavour, but mouthfeel is not oily enough. Still not a bad ipa.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy orange with a frothy white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of citrus fruits, grapefruit, light tropical fruits and some sweet pale malts. Taste is grapefruit, light resin, tropical fruits, light caramel pale malts and a nice smooth bitterness. Lightly astringent but overall nicely balanced and easy to drink. Entry level ipa but done well.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Banff Ave Brewing, pours a hazy orange with a medium white foamy head. Aroma reveals British hops and some herbal fungal notes. Flavour matches accordingly, with fruity hops, British malt, and again that fungal quality. Not overly pronounced on the hops, but well-enough balanced. Not very inspiring.
