3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz from Roth’s Sunnyslope store. $6.49
Typical orange coloured IPA but the head is enormous..fluffy and egg shell white
Nice distinctive hoppy aromas..floral, orange peel and slightly spicy.
The flavour continues the aroma..very hoppy yet light and summery..slight hop after taste..nice
I think the palate matched the beer quite well.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Decent sized off-white head of fine bubbles with minimal carbonation. Light roasted grains in the aroma to offset the floral hops presence and some sickly sweet malts. A hint of mint appears after a deep inhale. Color is a ruddy brownish orange. Moderate bitterness from the first sip but is balanced very well with the malty sweetness. The malts also subdue the lingering dry bitterness which is appreciated. A bit of caramel, pine and spices. Light alcohol presence. I like this IPA a lot.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aromas of chocolate-y malts and pine-y hops. My eleven year old brother says he smells a hint of tea tree. Tastes sweeter than I thought it would be, but a has very nice and long bitter finish. A very nice IPA, one I would recommend to people who aren’t always fans of them.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Cole’s. I haven’t mentioned it yet, but a MASSIVE thanks to my parents, who brought me back some really fantastic stuff from their trip to the West Coast. Pours deep copper/orange, medium white head, great lacing. Nose is stonefruit, especially peach, with grapefruit, spice, pine, and sweet caramel. Flavours of bright grapefruit, light white peach, but too much caramel. Big sticky malt distracts from the hops. Nice, but too sweet.
