4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
What a quality west coast style IPA. From Canada, I wouldn’t necessarily expect such a pine and grapefruit hop presence, but there it is. The aroma is a strong point, with grass, flowers, pine and citrus all present. The aroma is pure hops, a touch of water and light malt. The body has a better malt presence but doesn’t sacrifice the clean water finish. Fresh bomber went down so easily. The only knock is the alcohol at 7% is a little high for a beer that I’d love to session, and that it sticks a bit on the tongue with a tannic finish at the back. Otherwise, this is a beautiful beer, even including the appearance which is amber and has some decent (but not a ton of) lace. Thanks, Mom, for bringing this back!

650ml bottle from LCBO in Ottawa at parents’. Dark honey amber pour with frothy white head that leaves some stickiness. Aroma is very hoppy - grapefruit peel and mango and malty booze. Taste is mango, resin, citrus, deep toasty malt, boozy finish with honey and citrus peel bitterness. Good deeply malty big IPA.

Pours bubbly golden with a thick buff head. Aroma delivers resiny hop and citrus notes, not strong but demanding a taste. Flavor tugs resiny and somewhat bitter hops, grapefruit, orange, and fresh malt notes across the palate - definitely enjoyable! Mouthfeel features firm body and lively if not strong fizz. Tug one home!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating #1694 - 30.05.2015 - Bottle from @49thParallelYEG - actually shameful how long it took me to get to this beer. 1 Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hoppy citrus overtones, grapefruit, passionfruit, and mild toasted malt. Taste is more of the same, dry hops and roast malts dominating the flavour, with a wondrous cornucopia of citrusy sweetness. Finish is dry, but balanced and satisfying. Delicious. One of Canada’s world-class IPAs.
