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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500mL bottle, pours a cloudy amber orange with a small off-white head. Nose is full of piney hops, some tropical fruits, and apple. Flavour brings out piney hops, a little resin, some caramel notes, and a little bread. Begins on the sweeter side, and transitions to a dryer, hoppier finish. Definitely preferable to the regular IRA. Very solid fresh hop beer, but nothing extraordinary.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cool looking Germany style 50cl bottle pours with a clear copper body that supports a fairly tight tan head of foam. The aroma emits dirty socks, orange gummy bears, a touch of malt sweetened cranberry as well as a faint cracker sort of note well off in the background. The taste has smooth malts and sweetened cranberries to faint orange candy to start and then it gets quickly into some nice resiny hop bitterness. The bitter hops have a fruity edge as well as murmurs of dirty earthiness in the background. I like this. Itís different and tasty.

Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel with peppery herbal danky fresh hop mid palate. Long earthy herbal finish. Great showcase for the plant life.
