A nice light IPA. Nice, bitter hops on the tongue. Amber in the glass. A touch of citrus on the nose.

Couleur de cuivre avec une petite mousse blanche. L’arôme du pin et pamplemousse. L’arôme est d’abord un peu du malt sucré puis un amertume moyenne/fort avec un peu du pamplemousse.

Verbatim from notes 16JUL11
Golden ale with brilliant clarity and no head. No foam. Plenty of citric hps and just a hint of malt. Not special but not bad at all. Plenty of late addition hops give this a good flavor, but doesn’t really pack much bitterness. slick finish.
Serving type: on-tap

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Honey color, big foamy head that fades fast. Aroma is all pine and lemon, not very pleasant. Flavor is terribly sweet with some piney hop finish. Thick and icky.

Draft - Sweet grapefruit and candy floss. Clear gold with a thin head. Candy floss hops and a pith grapefruit bitter finish. Great NWIPA, hoppy, bold and a nice sweet balance.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Lovely hoppy aromas with hints of fruit. Low carbonation leaving a rather flat head. Pours a dark straw or oak colour. A very smooth taste with nice level of bitterness and a creamy mouth feel. A really good example of an IPA that hasn’t been over hopped.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Poured a clear copper color with an average creamy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy citrus hop aroma. Medium to abundant body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy citrus bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where surpassed.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
One of the worst beers I have ever had, if not the worst of all time. I missed half of a Matthew Good concert because I was so sick from this wretched swill. Typical of BC’s current obsession with hops (just look at Philips Brewery’s continual churning out of triple-hopped, quadruple-hopped, quintiple-hopped beers), it had an aroma reminiscent of peppermint mixed with paint thinner. Pure hop bite with an aftertaste that sticks in your mouth for hours. Bitter, minty, hellish. Could be mistaken for Pine Sol.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Surprisingly average - a cut above the rest of their beers. Some hoppy citrus smell in the beginning - classic west coast hops with minty tang. Pours clear. Finish is bitter and tangy. Give credit where credit is due. On tap at brewpub.
