This was one of my favourites at Bushwakkers, and I’m not even a big IPA fan. This was well balanced and not overpowering. Good flavour.

I’ve finally hit Bushwakker’s when this is on tap. (Draught) Sampled at the brewpub. Pours a quick dissipating white head atop an orange amber body. Nose is very pine tar and orange. I like the flavour and viscosity of this beer - its still pretty malted but the piney hops show through with a citrus finish. A very good beer. Enjoyed with RB local Paco.

This was one of my favourites at Bushwakker. A nice hoppy APA. You get quality bitterness balanced with malts, as per the style. A nice beer.

Wow, I’m the first to rate this one. Medium golden colour with a thick white frothy and fizzy head. Earthy and slight butterscotch aroma. Earthy and slightly piny flavours with a pleasant bitter finish. Medium bodied and quenching feel.

Slightly hazy amber. Really toasty, woody hop nose with light caramel malts. Flavour is also big on the caramel, with a light bitterness and woody hop notes. Good balance.

I love this bar, but the only notes I have are the numbers, which is unfortunate....

Tanks Paco! Wonderful clean deep amber.. I think... the lighting in my basement sucks balls. Digging the aroma - upfront and in my face - lemon, powedered orange flavour, apricot, floral, caramel, light roast - all nice after the bock I had last night. There is also a light herbal something or maybe a candy red licorice or something. 465 years. That is when the last lunar eclipse happened on the winter solstice. Happens tonight. Now you know and are less stupid for it. Big ass hop flavour. This is one bitter bastard. Lightly watery pine, almost peppery quality, a bit of roast, not soft caramel, I just had a vision of riding a Shetland pony, pantless. and it’s name was Alberto... ????????????? decent citrus, grapefruit that is only half unsweetened, something else. Good bitter finish that is pretty long, somewhat subdued and leaves me wanting more. Too bad the carbonation is a bit off and this didn’t have a thicker flavour. Either way, I’m just glad to be slugging back something with hops.

(Thanks to dresden) Une robe orangée et sa mousse plus ou moins intéressée. Un nez de malts caramélisés et de houblons à l’américaine. Des saveurs de céréales sucrées qui laissent passer des notes citronnées et des notes de pin. Une bouche passablement touchée par l’âge du liquide. Des bulles encore bien présentes. Une texture un peu mince. Une finale qui, à défaut de ne pas être sucrée, n’est pas très amère. Encore buvable malgré son âge vénérable.

Bottle: Poured a lightly hazy light copper color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light hoppy notes with dry caramel malt notes. Taste is not as hoppy as I had expected with a shy dry caramel malt backbone. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. I was expecting a bit more hops with more character.
