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.

Aroma doesn’t promise a fantastic beer, but the flavor is a pleasant surprise. Grapefruit and peach balance with a smoky, caramel richness. Microbrewery restaurants are often disappointing. Banff Brewing Co.’s IPA nails it!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma is amazing. Tangerine and sweet. The taste let's you down. Bitter citrus and apricot. Dry. Not bad but the smell for me excited for more than the taste delivered. Had this as part of a flight at Banff Brewing.

On draft at the brewery in Banff. Pours a clear copper with an off white head. Citrus nose. Flavors of tropical fruits and grapefruit zest. One of the better IPA’s I’ve encountered so far in Alberta.

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.
