3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour on tap, hazy orange-yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, some biscuit into a bit of orange, some jam, hints of pine into a bit of grass and spice. Taste is a mix of grass, spice, earth into caramel, toffee, some orange, grapefruit, finishing fairly bitter, slightly sweet. Not bad.

Draught. Dark yellow hazy apperance, off-white foamy head, floral hops aroma, low carbonation, sweetish hoppy taste with doughy undertones, hint of citrus, medium finish. Not a really very good DIPA.

Pours a hazy orange collor with a sudsy white head. Aroma was nice with citrus hops and some pine. Taste was orange, light grapefruit, bread, and hints of sweet malts. Solid double IPA and better than I was expecting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours hazy amber, quick 1 finger head. Nice lacing and retention. Aroma of spruce tips and citrus. Taste is pretty balanced with just enough sweetness from the malt to tame the bitterness of the hop bomb. Medium bodied, light carbonation and slightly oily mouth feel. Finishes medium bitter with notes of grapefruit, pine, caramel, hop resin and slight alcohol. I like it!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 mL bottle. Pours copper-orange with a small white head. Nice looking beer. The taste and the aroma are similar, with semi-sweet citrus and mixed tropical fruit, with the balance leaning toward the latter. The malt is tertiary to the hop flavours, but is certainly present. A solid if unspectacular brew.
