3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Dieu du Ciel tap takeover at WVRST in Toronto, served in a tulip. Pours hazy reddish amber with a moderate off-white head that remains. The nose has big notes of hops, grapefruit, citrus and pine, along with caramel and toasty malts. The flavour is medium bitter but also slightly sweet, with an American IPA hop bouquet, citric but also slightly peppery. The finish is long and hoppy with a peppery note and a hint of medium toasted malts. On the palate, it is medium in body with a dry texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a nice American IPA with spicy hops and a spicy finish. Not the most interesting brew, but well made. 2012-06-19

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewpub. Bombastic hop-stinky lupulin juice nose. Wild and unabashed. Flavors hold it tight with the balance of green gold and malt sugar. Electric and enamoring. The strength of the base upholds a rich and delicate grapefruit, orange, spice and pine hop flourish. A fantastic drinkability lies beneath a quenching bitter turn. A very nice small IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap, as a 6.9% ipa. Darkish hazy gold pour. Earthy grassy piney hop aroma, pine needles, forest floor. A bit of caramel, malty but not overly so. Bitterness is a tad high compared to the aroma hops, slightly tongue numbing. Lively prickly carbonation. Pretty good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy amber. Thin bubbly head. Aroma is toasty, with lots of caramel and toasty malt. Quite hoppy with woody notes and light citrus. Still a fair amount of malt coming through, mostly with a toasty bent.

[4449-20120607] Tap. Woody orange stem hops aroma has a kick of smoked floral wood. Hazy, brown amber body with a quick foamy off-white head. Muted citrus peel wooden hops flavour has a bitter wood aftertaste. Medium-full body. Quite a tasty bitter. (8/3+/8/4/17) 4.0
