4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Single bottle purchased from Crowfoot Liqour Store on 03/03/2011. Colour: Dark yellow and light brown....combined. Medium creamy white head. Nose: roasty malt, butter cream, seasoning salt, fresh baking. Delicious! Taste: Medium sweet, medium-light bitter, medium-light sour. Toast with just a shade of marmalade, and burnt hops that grip hold mid-palate and take over long after finished. Great stuff.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Burnt, glowing orange colour and a fizzy white cap. Aroma is a mixture of subtle hoppy pine and malty sweetness. More hopping is present in the flavour, but there is still a great balance between malt and hops. Carbonation level is great. Just enough to add some bite without covering any flavours. Awesome session brew, but would be better labelled as a Pale Ale instead of an IPA

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good malty aroma. Body is all malt with maedium bitterness. Finishes slightly sweet. Not quite an IPA, but a good malty English Pale Ale.

Note: Bottle sampled said IPA, not Pale India Pale ALe. Dark gold color. Medium head. Aroma is hoppy. A medium bodied IPA. Malty and hoppy. Somewhat juicy. Nicely balanced. A not to hoppy IPA. Grapefruit and citrus flavors are mild. More in the English style of IPA. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2007 Poured dark amber with big lacey head. Impressively floral nose. Sweet, bountiful flavors, ripe with both malt and a bit o’ hop, very well rounded. Surprisingly good! (Re-rated from a bottle in Canada, 5/14/07: Poured with a ncie amber hue with an initial flourish of carbonation, then quieted. Maybe my olfactory senses are dulled, because I find little aroma, maybe a little crystaline malt. But this has a nice flavor ... solid tangy malt with a litle hoppy, woodsy addendum that appears as it rolls of the tongue.) Downgraded a bit from original.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
An excellent alround beer, that has a nice aroma. A complex enough beer without being in your face, quite sessionable....

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a finger and half of head on a clear amber colored body.
The aroma is pine, mango and pineapple... a bit faint overall though.
The taste starts with a mild pine bitterness moving towards a dull dry grapefruit bitter middle and ending.
The texture is soft with moderate carbonation.
It’s a solid, good IPA.
