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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Breakside. Clear golden beer with a white head. Really orange forward aroma. Some tea, grass, and a bit of stone fruit. Pretty good citrus overall, in fact. Maybe a little on the malty side with some bread and caramel, but a pretty substantial hoppiness. Plenty of orange, some grass, and pine. Nice bitterness to the finish.
