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 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.

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.
