3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
copper red pour, medium white head that stays. aroma is very earthy with a dark caramel scent and lots of earthy hoppiness. flavor is earthy upfront into again a dark caramel like flavor with some biscuit notes and then resiny bitterness. hops are pretty good and the bitterness isn’t too abrasive at all with pine and citrus coming through but the resin cuts through it all. not bad at all.

Pour at Toronto Ratebeer Westside vs Eastside Rumble is dark as oak & offers a minimal cap. Taste is woody malts. Hopping seems surprising flat. Gets more interesting as the glass settles but slightly misses the mark for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a beautiful reddish amber with a bit of just off-white head. Smell is sweet caramel and hop resin, with a bit of tropical fruit. Taste follows. Finish is a nice, lingering bitterness, though the sweet malt lingers nicely as well. Overall this tastes and smells like Sam Adams’ Tasman Red.

Draft. Unclear dark amber with an excellent big creamy off white head. Moderate betterness. well balanced bittersweet. A little tang. Big Medium body. Plenty of caramel. Meaty citrus. Some earthy and spicage. Solid but seems maybe a little outdated now.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy amber colour with some head. Aroma is a little sweeter with a fruity zest but definitely some hops in the background. Taste is not as dry or sour as one would expect it’s actually quite softer with a hint of caramel and hops. Aftertaste is short and sweeter with little hops. Not your classic IPA but fans should enjoy it as it’s very drinkable and not as powerful. Although it still retains most aspects of an IPA.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Swietne dekadenckie piwo. IPA ale po amerykansku, a raczej po Kanadyjsku:) Piana niewielka pecherzykowa, kolor cos jak amber ale dosc ciemny. Zapach intensywnie cytrusowy, grejfrutowy glownie i ogorkowy nawet, takie mialem skojarzenia. W smaku intensywna glebia i moc chmielu. gozkie goryczkowe do potegi i lekko slodowe przy czym tu gora jest chmiel. Bardzo dlugi gozki finisz i posmak pozostajacy na jezyku przez dlugi czas.

Bottle. Deep amber, clear. Dark caramels, pines. Orange peel, yeasty fruityness. Soft mouthfilling body. Lots of slight sweet malty caramels. Piney hops. Bit dark, piney resinous drink. Well balanced though. Can’t say I don’t like it.
