"Pretty run of the mill balanced iPa. Adequately hoppy with a good dose of biscuity and sweet malt. Bittwrsweet finish. Not worth going out of your way for, but nice enough..."

As of late I can not find the time to take tasting notes of each beer I sample. I would like to track and record my thoughts of each so I will just use the simple scoring rubric until more time is available.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slightly hazy golden pour. Aroma is ripe with oranges, mango, grapefruit. Full bodied, with lots of juicy fruits and a great bitter grapefruit finish to cut any sweetness. Great IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
2014-02-27, draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 7-5-8-5-15=40
Hazy light amber color with creamy head. The malt base is good, with toffee accents; the hopping is good as well with tropical fruits, mango, and light animal component; this last one limits a bit the drinkability.
Good and fresh.
2014-01-10, bottle from Legacy Liquor, Vancouver, 8-5-7-5-16=41
Amber color, clean, with medium sized compact head. Aroma is strong, a lot of hop character, very animal, some cat piss. Caramel flavor with a lean mouthfeel; quite dry; strong animal character, cat piss, hop resins, bitter oranges (in the order). Long final.
Excellent and aggressive IPA.
