4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
A - A murky golden orange color without a lot of bubbles, but a beautiful two finger foamy white head. Definitely unfiltered. This one leaves a lacing like no other beer Iíve seen.
S - Strong notes of citrus hops dominate this one, very fruity with a faint faint touch of pine. A sweet maltiness is also apparent.
T - Wow, this tastes like grapefruit, only 20 times better. Fruity, citrusy, sweet, and slightly bitter. The sweet malts come through on the back end of this one. Not much alcohol apparent. A finely balanced beer and one of the most delicious Iíve tasted.
M - It feels a little more carbonated than I suspected, but as smooth as Iíve ever tasted. Goes down easy and not as big as some IPAs. This is very nice.
D - I feel sorry for the IPA lovers that havenít had a chance to try this one. This is a beer you can ride on all night and never get tired of it. An easy drink and extremely refreshing at that.

Flight at CBC. Nice golden amber with medium white head. Aroma of fresh hops, flowers, pine and citrus. Taste is very smooth with a light bitterness, flowers, citrus and malts. Thereís a light creamy aspect that is unique to most IPAs.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper body with a one finger frothy off-white head that left some light delicate lacing. The nose is big and bright with lots of citrusy hops that smell really juicy and fresh. No hint of malt in the nose at all, and thatís fine by me. The flavor is bursting with bitter and juicy hops, very green and leafy with some moderate caramel malt in the background. Nice light yeastiness throughout that adds on the mouthfeel quite a bit as well. Rather sturdy mouthfeel actually, almost chewy, but not sticky from the sweetness thatís below all the hops. Pretty nice IPA.

Bottle. Pours a nice hazy copper with lots of hop aromas with tons of citrus. Flavor matches the aroma with a little malt backbone. Very good.

Pours dark orange quite hazy with a creamy white head. The aroma brings sweet and smooth citrusy hops, pretty refreshing and not pungent. The flavors bring delicious hop juicy citrus notes so pleasant on the tongue, not really over zesty, but balanced so well and settles so long and tasty on the tongue.

Bottle from puddintane pours golden amber with a soapy off white head, leaves lacing. Nose of pine and resin. Some malt adds to the taste, ample bitterness but is not face melting. Body is solid but seems a bit thin at times.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Puddintane! Pours a nice gold with a slight white head that leaves thick lacing. Pleasantly piney aroma. But not much else going on. Taste is piney with a bit of orange. Fairly resiny. A slightly puckering bitterness develops between sips. Very drinkable, but forgettable.

On draft, pours a light copper/ gold color, hazy. Aroma is fruity. The taste starts with a lovely fruit tone mixed with malt with a bitter grapefruit finish. Very fresh and easy to drink.
