Very good for an IPA. Has the high hop taste you would expect without over doing it. Slight pine taste on the backbend but doesn’t over do the bitterness.

pours a dark reddish clear with a thick off white head that left a lot of lacing around the glass. the aroma is caramel, pine, hops, and citrus. the taste is all the same features especially the pine and some citrus. there is quite a bit of hop bitterness but not at a point where it is overpowering. solid beer!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark reddish amber, with decent but fast fading white head. Aroma is piney hops and slight caramel malts. Taste is moderately bitter and balanced with a good hop profile mixed into caramel malts. Thin on the palate, not overly carbonated. Meh.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a reddish orange with a minimal lighter off white head. Light lace left. The aroma is a sweet fruity hoppiness, with nothing else detectable. The flavor is a little sweet on the front, with a decent hoppiness and a rather disappointing level of bitterness. The mouth feel is really thin, and the flavors seem to disappear as soon as you stop drinking. Not overly bad, but nothing special by any means.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle. pours translucent golden orange. clean nose, bitter but without a real blast of Simcoe. bitter finish really lingers and that’s where the booze becomes apparent, but palate is fizzy and thin for an IPA. not terribly complex which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but heavy on the malty caramel sweetness. not bad but not really my favourite kind of IPA. probably better on draught.

Crashes on your palate like burnt toast, or dog hair, or tree bark. Harsh and boozy for an IPA.

Pretty average beer I'd say. I'm not sure what I'm tasting...just pure bitterness.

I do love IPAs, especially with animals on them, but not this one. Straight up.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
IPA Glass. Pours a reddish brown with a thick long lasting pillowy head. Odors of sweet fruity hops. Smooth and well balanced. Nothing jumps out at you but it works. Very drinkable beer.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a honey orange in color with a thick white head that has good retention. Aroma of citrus and a taste that is strong in grapefruit and pine. A little too much for my taste as the hop bitterness lingers on the palate a little too long. Overall decent ipa and worth trying and will cut through any greasy or spicy food.
