1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Have no idea why they had to call it an ipa. It is a pale ale and if it was labeled as such it would be considered a decent pale ale but definitely the worst ipa after Keith lager ipa.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear amber with thin off white head. Faint citrus in the aroma. Taste is sweet, with caramel malts and some light bitterness. Nothing special by any means.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
341ml bottle. Pours a medium brown, very little head that doesn’t last. Very weak aroma, some caramel bready malts and a hint of grapefruit hops. Some earthy bitterness in the taste. Finish is kind of wet, a little bit watery. Overall, not an IPA, drinkable in a pinch.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours light orange with a large white head which mostly diminishes. Inviting aromas with a medium intensity of the smell compared to other IPAs. Obviously hoppy, with a malty, wart-like aroma, take apples from the smell too. Taste is medium in intensity, with a medium aftertaste and body, mildly coarse. Round, but mellow texture, with the classic bitter, sweet, floral, hops flavors. refreshing and rich in quality. Appreciated.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2012 En fût au Moxie’s. 5.5%. Couleur jaune or, mousse blanche. Arôme de grains frais et herbes. En bouche, malt et houblons mais pas persistant. Amertume qui invite à une seconde gorgée. Pas mal bonne pour un resto d’Ottawa.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
341 ml bottle in a mixed pack from TBS, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear deep amber with a fair light tan head.
Aroma: Surprising, very leafy, very green, almost wet or fresh, raw hops, resinous, a touch peppery, not exactly pleasant, hints of a biscuit/bread crust/toast backbone, vegetal, odd.
Palate: Medium body, very relaxed effervescence.
Flav.: Still has a pervasive “raw” hop profile, though somewhat more subdued in mouth, oddly leafy, green, vegetal, slightly peppery, the malts are way in the distance, strange; dry with some bitterness and an amazingly abrupt finish that leaves traces of malt and green salad.
This damages “IPA” more than Keith’s. Blech.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I wasn’t expecting much, and it’s a good thing I wasn’t. Slightly dark with maybe a bit of an orange hue. No real aroma to speak of. A bit more bitter than their other beers, but not really an IPA in my books.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had on draft at Moxie’s in Burlington Ontario Canada. Pours a light copper colour, white head and layers of lacing. Smells lightly hoppy. Nice hop bitter taste. Piney aftertaste as well.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had this one in July, 2007. Forgotten tasting notes. The pour is a bright copper with a thick finger of beige head. A nose of sweet grain and a light hop, grass and caramel with an overall blandness. The taste is sweet and crisp with a minor hop bitterness and grainy, grassy malts. Very boring and bland overall, but a good beer for a BBQ.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Faint aroma. Pale appearance, slightly orange. Taste is a little bitter and then yeasty. Inoffensive, but not a real flavourful IPA.
