2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2009 Bottle. 5%. Hazy golden pour with a pretty thick white foam. Aroma was unpleasant, strong hops and old hay. Taste first reminded me of wet dog. Finish was quite bitter. Extremely disappointed, this is watery and disgusting. If someone finds this on tap in Edmonton, I would kindly re-rate.
Re-Rate. Much better, but only so much. No canine taste, just a plain tasting, grainy macro ale. Was impressed by the aroma this time around, sweet apples and quite hoppy.

Pours a hazy orange with a smaller white head. Has a crisp citrus aroma. Palate has a orange and grapefruit taste with a nice bitter finnish from the hops.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at Ship and Anchor, Calgary
Light amber color. It’s a mild Amber Ale, with a light cheesy touch, more evident in the flavor than the aroma. Can be boring.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
tap at Big Rock in Seoul - This one has a mild aroma of malt and grapefruit accented hops. The flavor struck me as very fruity and also quite sweet for what they’re calling an IPA. It’s barely hoppier than what Alexander Keith’s claims is in IPA. That’s not saying much. This one’s drinkable, but don’t expect bitterness.

Not a fan, very watered down and not taste to it. Big Rock produces some great beers, but this is not one of them.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle courtesy of tupalev. Pours a clear, bubbly copper-gold with a small quickly diminishing white head. Mild aroma of grain, sweet malt and light hops. Watery flavour’s also of grain, sweet malt and light hops along with some cardboard and with a light bitter finish. Light to average bodied. Not bad for a Big Rock beer but there isn’t really any reason to buy this, there’s always going to be something better to get, one would hope.

[1008-KE-20071228] 341mL (c/o tupalev). Yeasty hay dough aroma. Clear, orange amber body with a quick foamy off-white head. Sweet hay yeast continues in flavour with a skunky tinge. Light-medium body with a watery astringency. Poor.
