3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
sampled at Beer Fest, Toronto 2013: Amber with nice frothy head and lace. Aromatic floral hops hit you instantly. Taste frontloaded with hops and has some cheesy/yeasty flavours. Nice looooong bitter end. Absolutely splendid IPA.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ethanol and hops on the nose, pretty faint though.
Pours a hazy, pale yellow with not much of a head. Dies off completely after a few minutes.
Bitter malty, almost ESB style taste. More malt driven than your average IPA. Cereal/malty aftertaste with definite boozy tones. The alcohol isnít really that well hidden.
Mouthfeel is nice, quite flat and slightly viscous, again not unlike an ESB.
I really like this beer overallí; itís not a typical hop bomb IPA and despite being imperfect itís unique and very drinkable. Quite session-able too.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Coloração âmbar cristalino, com média formação de espuma, mas sem muita persistência.
Fraca em aromas, com presença de notas terrosas e de malte.
Sabor amargo, com presença de malte, caramelo e até tostados, o que surpreende para uma IPA. Não percebi aqueles tons cítricos e herbais típicos do estilo.
O álcool revela sua presença, mas está muito bem inserido no conjunto.

Even though the aroma is not as strong as other IPA, the taste is quite good. But it is not as good as other IPA
