In bottle (advent calendar) .. well, another RR beer that foamed up alot when I opened it so I only had about half a bottle left.
An OK, beer .. I am not an IPA fan though found this drinkable as it seemed less hoppy; some nice citrus ... still wouldn’t buy it again though

Aroma is clove, lemon grass, earthiness and light sweet malts. Taste is light crystal malts which transition into a fairly full hop body that finishes smoothly. Appearance is a clear gold witb a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
473 ml can from the LCBO.
Appearance: Pours a clear golden colour with a couple of fingers of head and lots of retention. Leaves fairly thick lacing on the glass.
Aroma: Lychee, grapefruit, hops and some vegetable aromas. However, this fades quickly to just hops and vegetables with no trace of fruit left.
Flavours: Grapefruit, orange peel, hint of lime and similar to the aromas, just fades to hops and bitterness pretty quickly.
Mouthfeel: Thin with moderate carbonation.
Overall: An okay IPA that that starts off as totally fruit driven. There was a lot of fruit coming from the aromas and I was getting flavours like grapefruit, lime and lots of other citrus along with orange peel. However, after a few minutes the fruit aromas totally faded away along with the fruit like flavours leaving just hops and vegetables. I don’t think I would buy this one again.

Can. Clear and amber, but exceptionally sedimented. Could be an old can, given where I got it, but never seen such a sedimented beer from a can. Despite that, this is a great drink ... crisp, appley yet snappy with hoppy finish that sucks the moisture right out of your mouth. Good stuff. (#5914, 1/4/2014)

22oz bomber: This one pours a hazy slightly orangish amber color. There was a small off white head that doesn’t linger long or leave much lacing. Good hop nose. An earthy pine as well as some grapefruit. A bit of biscuit also. The taste is pretty good. A fair amount of bitterness. Grapefruit and pine hop flavors, as well as a bit of biscuit. Also a bit of caramel malts and some sweetness peeking through. Not bad at all!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
650ml bottle poured into a glass. Color is amber-orange, a bit cloudy (but uniform), nice dense light-yellow-whiteish foam. Aroma of pine, citrus and herbal. Taste is intense, a lot of bitterness, pine and citrus especially grapefruit in aftertaste. Very good beer. ////////////////////////////////////
Butelka 650ml przelana do szkła. Kolor pomarańczowo bursztynowy, piwo dość mętne (ale jednolite). Piękna jasno żółta, niemal biała i gęsta piana, która długo się utrzymuje. Aromat sosnowy, cytrusowy, ziołowy. W smaku głębokie, sosnowe, bardzo goryczkowe, dużo cytrusów, a zwłaszcza grejfrut w posmaku. Bardzo dobre.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dry, thick piney hop notes highlight this very drinkable IPA. The finish is fairly clean and smooth, with no over the top hop bitterness. And with it’s very manageable 6.5%, it doesn’t seem too filling or cloyingly sweet. A very unobtrusive and sessionable IPA.
