3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle poured at home. Aroma is great -- strong, pungent pine and resin hops, some citrus zest notes, and a hint of sweetness. Definitely one of the more aromatic IPA’s I’ve had lately. It’s a good looking brew; hazy and translucent, deep amber in color. Great hop flavors -- especially the resin hops -- and sweetbread malts keep this beer lightly weighted and well balanced. There’s something about the palate that quarrels with me . . . the carbonation’s effervescence builds steadily, which I liked . . . but there’s something slightly metallic about the mouthfeel which detracts from the experience. Overall a good summer night beer with great potential, just needs some tweaks.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Rating from December 2013. There is a big hop wallop in the hose and a big piney resinous flavour. Long finish that is a touch dry. Overall very good.

Pretty good bitter IPA. Big lasting bitterness after a heavy pine resinous start. Nothing especially stood out hopwise for me. but nice and chewy.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle. Pours a clear deep amber, with a moderate off-white head, which lasts fairly well and leaves decent lacing. Banana, resin and grapefruit hops and a little toffee malt make up the aroma. Pine and grapefruit hops up front give way to toffee malt in the mid-palate. A touch of banana leads into a pine hop finish. A decent IPA, but it doesn’t really stand out from the crowd.

Straight down the middle safe but fine IPA. No distinct hop.

Aroma of pine, citrus, malt caramel, hop dank. Pours copper with white head. Smooth up front with medium body. Lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Not the typical IPA.
