3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Bar Volo. 5.0%. Hazy orangey-coppery amber with smallish creamy white head. The aroma is malty sweet with loads of toffee and apples, soft and English kind of earthy, leafy. The flavour is that of ripe autumn fruits, leaves and earth, moderately bitter. Soft mouthfeel with very thin carbonation. Dryish malty finish. A bit too watery. Otherwise an alright low-ABV English-style IPA. Not sure I’d enjoy a full pint though...

On cask at the Oxley. Pours a cloudy golden orange with fairly large slightly off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is piney/cirtusy hops with caramel and a little herbal character. Taste also has juicy piney/cirtusy hops, caramel and bread. Modest bitterness in finish. Nice.

Cask @ Volo. Pours a clear orange with minimal head. Aroma of grassy, pot-like hops, stinky hops, caramel malt. Flavor of English pale malt, grassy hops with stinky, garlicky hops and toasted malt in the finish. Tasty! Very enjoyable English IPA.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On cask at Bryden’s. Pours a hazy golden straw colour with a good amount of head. Smell is really weak but a hint of grassy hops and a bit of caramel malt. Palate is really nice, medium body with some soft carbonation. Taste is strange, kind of watery sweet with a tiny bit of bitterness. Not terrible, but not great.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask sample from C’est What?. Pale orange in colour with soft carbonation. British pale malt, orange and grapefruit peel are the dominant aromas. Well balanced flavours of crusty French bread, and citrusy hops. MEdium bitterness, and smooth bodied from the cask. Nothing over the top, but a nice sessonable pint

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On cask at the Queen and Beaver in Toronto, served in a dimple mug. Pours clear orange-amber with a small, off-white head. The head fades to a thin remnant and leaves a trace amount of lace. On the nose, there are notes of citrus, caramel, bread, tropical fruit and herbs. The flavour is well balanced, moderately bitter with herbs and pine, along with a moderate toasty malty sweetness. The finish is moderate in length and balanced. On the palate, it is light-medium in body with a smooth, watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a decent English style IPA. Though it is subtle and sessionable, I prefer the hop addict. This one could be more complex and assertive. 2011-12-15

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Volo.
Aroma of sweet citrus, orange jam, and some light tropical fruit. Flavor was more of the same with a touch of sweet malts. A nice IPA, pretty straight forward, but good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cast at C’est What? Pale golden pour. The nose has a lot of blackberry and soft fruitiness as well. The flavour is straightforward with a soft orange marmalade and crackery Maris Otter malts. Soft and lightly earthy with a nice balance of malt and hops. The nose become quite fruity as the beer starts to warm up. Soft bitterness – quite a lovely pint really. Nice lingering minerally bitterness.
