Pours a nice amber with a fairly good head. I don't get a lot in the way of aroma, bread, malt and some mild caramel. Taste is mildly bitter, with a soft maltiness. Overall, just okay.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
600mL bottle from the Lykbow. Pours a nice golden copper with a medium rocky head. Aroma is decent, bursting with hoppy citrus characters that play off the malts really well. Flavour has a lot of bittering hops upfront, making way for delicious bready-biscuit caramalts, followed by citrusy flavour hops. Finishes clean with lingering bitterness and malty sweetness. Body is medium, with somewhat tamed carbonation. Vaguely reminiscent of Sgt. Major’s IPA. Vaguely. This is a very solid beer, I would drink this regularly if it were more than just a seasonal. Another good ones from Beau’s.

from bottle. dark copper colour with carbonated head that as expected fizzes and pops before vanishing. Big nose of oranges, lemons and peaches. Thick and chewy hoppy bitterness but flavour dissipates a bit too prematurely, perhaps it’s lingers longer after a few mouthfuls. Hops are bold and brash but lack complexity. feels like it’s all about that big hop bomb but there’s still room for some subtlty. Has potential to be a stalwart why only a seasonal?

A light copper colour with a foamy head. Not much of an aroma. The carbonation is a good compliment to the caramel malt flavours. Could use some more hops, to punch up the flavour, but not too shabby.

pint as some restaurant in Ottawa. orange to copper in colour, with a decent off white head. not a very aromatic beer, the hops still stand out on top of some malts. taste is caramel and malts with a nice hops finish. nicely carbonated with a medium body. not a bad IPA.
