3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
wow, clear brew.little carbonation. yellow amber colour. hoppy pine cones, floral hops but it also has a weird reduced cream of corn note. Medium bodied brew with some leafy hop notes, some weird spicy note on my tongue, and, unfortunately, not much else. I find it boring.

2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle. Pours a clear, light amber/orange with light orange head that’s a little short. Lots of grapefruit and tangerine with an overlay of fresh spruce. The faintest hint of light malt. Holy fuck! This is a weird beer on the palate. There’s a salty, bitter assault up front with some hops and pale malt across the middle. Finishes with a terribly off-balance bitter, tart, saltiness that goes on for way too long. So disappointing after the nose. There’s a weird rancid licorice taste up front too. Gah!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that has excellent retention and leaves some pleasing lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and grass with some toasted grains. Taste is bold citrus and grassy hop bitterness with an underlying malty sweetness that balances this brew out nicely. Medium body with plenty of carbonation to leave a nice bite on the palate. A very nice india pale ale that was definitely worth sampling.

Clear amber poor with white head that laces the glass. Full on floral slightly bitter aroma. Really enjoyable beer. Will be going back to for sure over these colder winter months.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2012 On tap, pours golden with small head that dissipates to ring around glass with steady stream of bubbles rising. Good lacing. Aroma of floral hops with hint of pineapple, mango and grapefruit aftertaste. Hop hit bitterness and pleasureable carbonated acidity on tongue. Dry and easy drinkin. Absolutely wastes the taste buds.

Pours a clear orange color with a good sized foamy white head that produced nice lacing. Nose is powerful with citrus/ and pine hops. Full bodied with a rich slick. mouthfeel. Flavor is a very nice pine, floral, and citrus bitter that roll over into the finish. Very nice IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle/500ml - Pours a clear orange amber in color with a medium foamy white head that stuck around to produce some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is strong mix of citrus/grapefruit, floral and pine hops along with just a hint of tropical fruit. Flavor is strongly bitter with lots of pine and floral hops... very hoppy (nice). Lingering bitterness into the finish. One of the better non-US IPAs that I have had... enjoyable!
