Unlike more herbal fresh hop beers this one on draft tastes like orange juice. One dimensional and sweet but not terrible.

On tap @ all stars. Overall good IPA, easy to drink. Light transparent brown. Good white creamy head that reduces but is more than just a ring. Moderate bitterness, decent citrus hops. 8.6 bd

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Orange with a large white head. Aroma is full of flowers and pineapple. Flavor is very floral with some pineapple, biscuit and medium bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Tap at Haymarket. Very non-aggressive IPA - some floral hop but itís far from bold. Decent enough but far from awesome.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
undated 22oz bottle served in a New Glarus pint glass in April 2012.
Pours with a medium, rather creamy looking bone-colored head. The beer itself is slightly hazy golden amber. Notable and rather chunky sediment remained in the bottle after the initial pour. Lots of sticky lacing on the glass. Smells hoppy with a lot of citrus and some floral, herbal and earthy elements. Presages a taste that will be both sweet and tart. Marred by a bit of dankness.
Taste: more malt than is common for style, making for a more balanced mix of sweet malts and bitter hops. A hit of tangy hops and/or yeast towards finish, followed by an earthy and bitter (grapefruit) aftertaste from the hops.
M: nicely carbonated; medium body; rather dry finish.
O: this unfiltered Imp. IPA has a homebrew (not that that is a bad thing) look and taste, and a very fine mouthfeel.

Draught @ BeerTemple.
Pours very pale yellow and looks almost like a witbier. Quickly fading white head. Lightly sour, soapy nose.
Taste is not what I expected: again hard candy sweet and sour. Canít taste the hop. Reminds me of Hoegaarden, which is not good...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very pale straw coloured brew. The aroma is loaded with bright lemony/noble hops. A fairly assertive bitterness but with a lot of noble spiciness. Hopped to IPA levels it seems like with a lot of lingering bitterness. The beer also has a very lean malt component. A touch of pepper and a little bit of alcoholic heat as well. This seems to add to the perception of dryness though, so thatís good. Has a little bit of high gravity pale malt flavour which is tough to describe but has a slight honeyed character. A touch of acetaldehyde but itís pretty restrained. Nice brew really
