2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at masa’s between rounds. Pours copper, light head with decent lacing. Grassy shite bouquet. A field of filth on the tongue. I’m not a big fan of this. Not much going on, a malty forward grassy bog stink IPA. Big rock should stick to the Traditional Ale, because that’s good.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Biscuit and light caramel with lightly spicy hops and some light buttery notes in the aroma. Clear orange-golden body is topped by a thin white head that recedes to a partial cover. Fair to moderate bitterness over biscuity malts. Light body is somewhat watery in texture. Can. Just above fridge temperature. Purchased at the BCLS.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 473ml can. Head off-white faded quickly. Clear but nice orange-copper colour. Aroma wasn’t as exciting as you get used to in the IPA style these days, some Biscuit/caramel a little grass from the hops, but nothing big. Light bodied mouth-feel, you get the caramel/bread malt, some dry bitterness at the end. Not as "hoppy" as the IPA you hope for. I spent $2.49 for a tall can and it’s an enjoyable beer, not top-notch for the style however.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Average for a IPA, not enough floral, not enough fruity or hoppy bitter. Pours a straw color, medium head, stingy on the palate and finish, but ok.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
$10 jugs of draught at Masas. Clear light copper, foamy off white head settles and fades. Faint malty, straw, citrusy hop aroma. Taste is mild caramel malts, light grassy hops. Average carbonation, light bodied, lightly hopped. Clean and bland, a wee bit thin but not watery, light bitter finish. An okay, drinkable pale ale, especially at that price. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Color is amber yellow with small foam head. Aroma is citrus, not the hops I anticipated. Taste is small hoppy, more a lager then a IPA, bit dissapointing. Short dry bittersweet aftertaste. (Montreal 201210)

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours an amber/orange. Aromas of floral hops, chalk, biscuity grains. Even disregarding the inaccurate label, it’s a little bland. Mild bitterness, not much aroma. And chalky.

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.
