3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2014-07-27, bottle from Kitsilano Liquor, Vancouver, 7-4-7-3-14=35
Cloudy golden color. Slick IPA, well drinkable, with simple but easy-drinkable malt profile; the hop is not bright, but it has a herbaceous, grassy touch.
I enjoyed it more that when I had it on draught.
2014-07-25, draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver, 6-3-6-3-12=30
Cloudy golden color with compact head. Very light fruity aroma, apricot, some yeast. Good body structure, lean mouthfeel; the malt flavor is a bit dusty, the hops are not bright, it has strong bitterness.
Rather boring IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Provisions Market. Clear golden-orange pour with a white head. Rather lemony aroma to this. Sort of woody as well. Some pale malts, melon, and Sauvignon blanc. Not bad. Flavor has a bit too much grainy sweetness for my liking. There is, though, a really nice fruit character from the hops. Lots of melon, lemon, and white grape. Moderate bitterness and a slight herbal note.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at PIB, pours a cloudy golden blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out citrus zest, piney hops, and hay. Flavour is very dry, with notes of biscuity and crackery malt, and dry floral hops that linger on. Very dry and crackery. Not the most interesting IPA, but well-enough made. Decent.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Citrusy and piney hops. A little sweet leaning, but bitter enough to notice too. I like the pils malt, but still a little heavy for my taste.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2013 Bottle. Hazed gold with a fine white head. Rich orange and peach nectar hops, moderately musty, light cheese rind and herbs. Very much like an EKG hopped bitter or English pale ale in the nose. Strongly bitter body on top of a surprisingly lean pale malt core. Lemon, pepper, white onion, lawn clippings and dried herb flavor. Pasty, yeasty finish, a bit chalky but not to an extent to annoy me. Bright and vibrant and I would guess it’s about 6% rather than over 7%. More dry than sweet, musty and herbal with a rustic English hop quality and a pleasant bitter lemon pith flavor. Very clean and enjoyable for me at a time when IPA and strongly-hopped American ales aren’t really doing it.

500 ml bottle. Pours a bright cloudy orange color with a large white head. A big nose of lemons and biscuit. Light bitterness, lemons, biscuit, marmalade, lingering bitter grapefruit. Clean. Some English bitter/esb flavors invade. Nice and simple.
