3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Hazy light amber color, with small sized head. The aroma is delicate, with some fruity hops, soft, and light sweat trace. Lean mouthfeel; the flavor tends to be a bit too much caramelly, although dry, and with a earthy/manure touch; quite strong bitterness, where the hops provide more strength than else, still in the final some resins and fruits can be noticed. Long final.
Very good, but it doesn’t deliver the feeling of freshness and lightness that I prefer in a perfect modern IPAs.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a hazy copper orange with a small white head. Aroma is full of resinous hops, pine, and buttery malts. Flavour has lots of earthy hops, fermented leaves, and buttery caramel malts. Not an overload of hops, but well balanced and easily drinkable. Becomes a bit metallic after a whole. Decent, standard IPA.
