3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can - Orange peel, bread and some grains. Hops do peek through but very mild. Crystal clear orange with a creamy long lasting head. Resin and bitterness prevail. Needs much more depth of flavor, but not bad. Not quite an IPA.

Bought at Castle Mountain store in Banff NP. drank under secrecy as the park Gestapo are on the hunt for us who are willing to risk our lives to savour alcohol on a weekend where its banned. Poured into my mouth. Light yellow and lacking aroma. Seems grassy with weak fruit. Taste didn’t excite me either. Barely an IPA. My choices were limited.

Can [473ml]. Pours deep orange with an average size lasting frothy white head. Some lacing on the glass. Aroma of bready caramel malt, a bit buttery, some light hops and fruit. Lightly watery flavour of grain, caramel malt, also buttery and with light hops. Average bodied. Better then I thought but just O.K.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours honey gold. Little soapy white minimal lacing head. Nose of mild pine, sweet cereals and grass. Mouthfeel is crisp. It has a nice hopiness, but it’s a bit one dimensional. Toast, caramel. Traces of herb in the mineral finish. Plain, but not as crumby as the numbers suggest.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours light; achieves the perfect balance of traditional IPA and solid flavour. Not too hoppy like many IPAs now on the market.

341ml bottle. Pours a reddish amber with thin creamy vanilla head. No distinctive aroma. Taste is fantastic!! Not a west coast IPA but still a hoppy treat! Sooo buttery smooth yet crisp level of carbonation for a perfect palate. Excellent balance. Their best offering.
