3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours two fingers of head on a clear lighter straw colored body.
The aroma is bright pineapple, lemon, grapefruit and pine. Wonderful.
The taste is a moderate pine bitterness throughout, though well balanced.
The texture is soft and fizzy.
A great smelling and feeling IPA, average flavor in a hotly contested category.

Can from LCBO. Flavors of caramel, pine, grassy hops, grapefruit peel, dry bitter finish. A well done brew but not really my type of IPA, more of a British one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clearly an older can. Aroma was some nice melon, apricot, and light papaya. Pours amber with a nice foamy head and lacing. Taste is muddled apricot/melon with a dirty orange rind malt. Would love to revisit this a little fresher because the hops that I could taste were pretty great.

Can. The look is a slight haze, white colored head, and orangish bright in color. The smell is toffee, caramel, a little stale, fruits, hops, grassy, and pine. The taste is pine, grass, resin, grapes, grapefuits, and ok.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ML bottle thanks to Eric S. For this share. Super hazy Amber color with lasting head. Aroma is floral, pine and citrus. Pretty nice array of hop variety.
Flavor is very hop forward, pine, grapefruit and lemons with a decent malt body to provide balance. Has some zesty notes in the lingering bitterness as well. This was a very nice surprise and has a West Coast profile, very nice.

3.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Airy head that leaves tons of lacing. Dark copper color. Light resin aroma that could use a little more detail. Very interesting taste of brown sugar and molasses balanced by hop bitterness.
