Solid beer - nice gold color. Both the taste and aroma is citrus hops. Could be hoppier though, not as good as Venom.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Arundel Mills in Mar 2008: Pours a transparent deep bronze with a thin coating of stringy-lacing white head. Has a fresh piny grapefruity hoppy nose with sweet pale malty undertones. Starts with decent fullness and sweet toasty caramel and pale malt before a crisp, bittersweet finish. A pretty nice IPA with good grapefruity citrusy hoppy notes.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler from Beachbum25. Thanks. Bright gold pour with a nice fluffy lasting head and super sticky icky lacing. A really nice looking beer IMO. The aroma is of toasted caramel malts, some bread, and hops in the form of earth, citrus, and wood. Nice toasted malts, a touch of sweetness, all rounded out with nice earthy hops, citrus skins and wood. The carbonation is light and the beer drinks very smoothly. Quite good for session drinking.

Golden color with an earthy hop aroma. Flavor was a bit soapy and medicinal. Ok, but something was a tad off.
