UPDATED: JUN 26, 2014
2014-06-26 draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 8-3-8-5-16=40
Cloudy golden color with compact head. Pungent brew, probably with NZ hops, with a lean body, appreciated for showcasing good hops, moderately sweet, and very fruity (mango over all), a bit musky; drier final.
Very good, drink cold.
2014-06-07, bottle from 16th Street Liquor, West Vancouver, 7-4-8-5-16=40
Hazy golden color with medium sized head. The hop aroma is moderately fruity, some malt, and light vegetables; some piney pungent hop too. Lean body, the mouthfeel is lightly oily; mellow malt flavor, and potent hopping, very resiny, but also with fresh fruit character; long and bold final.
There are other strong IPAs with a better aroma, nevertheless this one has the quality of being quite easy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Sure enough it’s golden yellow. Aroma is pretty straightforward citrus and tropical hops. Flavor is much of the same and quality hopping at that but the alcohol also floats over top and lingers.
