3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2012 At the brew pub in banff . Pours a light tan opaque color almost like apple cider. Aroma is floral with citrus notes and pine. This also has not much carbonation with flat head. Had time to reflect on this afterward, might have been too harsh. I was expecting more on the hop side to this, but at time was trying to rate whilst surrounded by good looking women. Anyway this deserves a higher rating on this re-rate, I say up the hop content and little higher abv you got a winner.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I found this to be a pretty weak ipa. It's lacks a lot of hop presence that is expected in an ipa. Was still good I guess I felt a bit mislead.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft - Nice fresh grapefruit and some sweet tropical fruit. Cloudy orange with a thick head. Grapefruit and resin with a very muted bitterness. Not bad for a local, but could have a bigger punch.
