3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark amber with small foamy head. Aroma is of floral, woody hops and sweet, toasty malt. Flavor is very malty with earthy, woody, flowery hops. Smooth palate. Not an outstanding IPA but well balanced for an English Pale Ale.

Bottle sample. Clear amber with a white head. Floral hoppy aroma with some fruitiness. Flavor of some sweet malt, bitter hops, and a bit of citrus in the finish. Medium body. OK.

one of the better english style IPAs i have run across. the reason being the hops were turned up and the malt did not dominant like some EIPAs do. anyway great citrus maybe pine like hop finish, with a nice balanced malt flavor. great feel in the mouth, not too watery proves for easy drinking.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
$$$$$$$$$ bottle at Beer Bistro. Very good dazzling hops that don’t bowl you over with resiny intensity or citrus-pith bitterness. Tasty. Actually smells more hoppy than it tastes. We need this at the LCBO.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle - Pours a clear amber color with a one finger thick off white head. Light spotty lacing. Aroma and flavor is light malt and earthy hops. Light to medium body. A decent beer. Worth a try.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 0.355 l. Nice looks, reddish brown. Fresh nose, nice hops. Great flavor with juicy and mouthwatering hops. Never harshly bitter, but nicely fruity. Very good. Slightly winey in a good way, altho alcohol is amazingly well hidden.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden caramel brown in color. Looks decent. The hop smell is too subtle to be an IPA. The hop smell is not what I expected. There is some subtle malt smell as well. I just think that the aroma is a big let down in the realm of hops. I have used this hop I believe in my home brewing operation. The hops smell like vegetables, and I am smelling that in the aroma. The range of hops used doesn’t seem great. Decent palate. Not too creamy and not too thin, average. The malt flavor is noticeable in the flavor, and so are the hops, but they just don’t show up in the flavor as I would like them to. The bittering hop is pretty good, I can taste the bitter in the back of my mouth, but the flavor hop is just lacking. Decent brew, it is in the right percentile if you ask me.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a deep amber body with a healthy looking cream head. Big floral, sweet malty, nutty nose. Very impressive nose. Potently hopped and malted for an English style IPA. Grapefruit and resinous pines in nose, but not cloying. Finished smooth and proved to be quite enjoyable.
