4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
355ml can from LCBO. Served in a tulip. Pours a transparent orange-brown, fine beige head. Minimal carbonation. Aroma is super hoppy, wow. Hop hop hop hop hop. More subtle notes of orange, pine, vinegar, and candy. Palate: Medium bodied, fizzy, very dry, biting finish, but still somewhat refreshing. Taste: Bitter! Definitely an amazing IPA. Lots of complex flavour. Better hope you like hops!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
At a tasting, thanks, almost no head, light hazy deepish Orange color, aroma of flowers and citrus with a woody hint, light flowery aroma with a light maltiness in the back, grapefruit bitterness which is a bit too strong unbalancing the beer a bit. Still very nice.

Bottleshare at Leighton’s Stratoflat. Can, thanks to Paul. Lightly hazy gold beer, small off white head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Light malts, touch of sweetness. Hops start with smooth pine followed by light hop skunk and a little citrus. Bitterness blossoms strongly in the finish, getting a metallic tang. Not bad, finish a bit awkward.
