3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Malty, jamy, old hops, grapefruity, resinous, sugary, ABV evident. Copper colour, medium, dense off-white head, lacing. Good bite, noticable sweet, spicy, ABV noticable. Medium body, soft carbonation, bitter finish.
Decent, but not aromatic enough for a higher mark.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours amber with a soapy etched top with some creamy hills. Smells mostly of tea and resin - uninspired. Flavor is much the same, malty with a sharp, monotone bitterness. Medium bodied on heavy with moderate carb and a dry finish. Not impressed.

Bomber. Mostly clear medium copper, firm off-white foam settles and lasts. Aroma of earthy hops and C-malt.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Central City Liquor store, Surrey
Amber color, hazy, medium sized head. Powerful hop aroma, caramel, lightly cheesy, puke; interesting. Semi-dry mouthfeel; strong caramel flavor with a toffee touch; strong bitterness, with resins and some fruits.
Quite heavy on the malts, but fairly good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden-amber. Light frothy head. The hops are a bit floral, a bit peachy but not all that fresh. Sweet malts are up front, a dash of alcohol as well, and then the rather old hops come knocking. Really fresh this is probably better but there’s no date on the bottle.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Brownish tinged pour with a sticky foamy head. Serious hops aroma, the centennial is hitting you with resin etc. Piney malty taste, pretty chewy for a big beer. good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml. Pours a crisp copper-amber with a lasting creamy head. Nose is earthy molasses, orange tea, and apple. Tastes of molasses, apple, minty resin, earthy tea leaf and fresh toasted grain. Light-medium body starts sweet but has an almost annoying wood-bitter finish. Mostly smooth medium level of carbonation

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Collins Pub. Pours dark orange amber with medium white head. Aroma is light amber malt and earthy fresh hops. Taste is clean sweet amber malt, followed by big bitter hops. Nice pine and grassy notes on the hops, and lots of them. Finishes clean, even after all the bitterness. Fairly malty for a NW IPA. Nice beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a slight hazy orange color with a nice, lacing head. Light, hoppy aroma with some citrus notes. Hoppy taste. Not much in terms of citrus in the taste. Dry finish. Not an amazing IPA but decent.
