500 ml bottle. Pours a clear reddish color with a small white head. A big perfume caramel malt nose. I’m also getting a phenolic banana note. The flavor is sharp fresh hops, big malty sweet base, caramel, pine, some sugary notes. Good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is a murky brown with a large tan head. Aroma is full of piney hop resin and some caramel malt. Flavor is more of a dank hop with a large sweet malt with some notes of molasses and sugar covered berries. This was more of a strong ale than IPA. Still this was quite tasty with a sweet but not overly heavy malt and the hop are there lingering in the backround.

11/8/14 - 22 oz bottle poured into an ale glass. Pours with a frothy, white head that dissipates quickly leaving a film. Copper colored and slightly cloudy. Tons of lace on the side. Spruce and pine aroma, green apple, with butterscotch and roasted malt. Starts bitter, slightly metallic, with a slightly sweet finish. Medium body, well-carbonated, rich, long finish. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Rogue Kitchen & Wetbar (W. Broadway), Vancouver, 10 oz
Hazy amber color with small head. The aroma is malty, biscuity, mellow, fresh, fruity: sweet oranges, plums, hint of tropical (7.5). Lean mouthfeel; the malt flavor has a mild caramel accent, light residual sweetness, the bitterness is well controlled, there is plenty of orange flavor, but a bit of paper too in the final.
The fruitiness in this beer is original and under the spotlight. Excellent.
