3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Haha thats funny renaming it all occasions IPA! Anyways this pours a hazy amber colour with a thin soapy white blanket on top leaving a good couple inches of lace up the glass. Aroma is made up of pine, resin, tropical fruits, and some mild malty sweetness. Flavour is sweet malts, sweet tropical fruits, resin, pine, medium well balanced bitterness thats somewhat hidden by the sweetness though lingers mildly into the after taste, and a warming alcohol.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy copper body with a small foamy head. Aroma of citrus and grass, some caramel. After beer warms a bit aroma gets more pronounced, but still gentle. Taste of some hops and pretty heavy caramel (might also be some oxidation) at first, then a lot of bitterness. Not that much in the way of actual flavors. Some citrus, some lemon zest, long bitter finish. Basically, I get the feeling this beer would be a lot better fresh. As is, it’s bitter, oxidized, and not much else.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - All Occasions IPA. Pours a deep gold with a small amount of white head. Aroma is tangerines, pineapple, malt sweetness. High carbonation. Medium bodied. Sweet, grainy malts along with fruity and piney hops. Lingering bitterness that’s a bit metallic. Okay.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had this as All Occasions. Pours hazy. At first this was mildly disappointing as it seemed like just a regular DIPA with some resins on the mouth, fruit on the nose, but a third of the way through it started to act like a barleywine and I swear there was effervescence peaking through. Not much but some, and that’s something to respect. Other than that though it’s quite sweet, almost cloying on the finish. So half way between an awesome beer and meh, strangely enough... 3.6 for the effervescence!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Whole Foods, Bowery 33cl ($7): Pours light amber with a beige head. Aroma is citrus, pine, and some sugary maltiness. Taste is rubbery and bready, with a sort of consistent hoppy undertone. Somebody else calls one of the flavors here rubber, and I am inclined to agree. The hops do provide plenty of flavor, but I can’t help but feel that this might be slightly past its prime or that perhaps the prime was somewhat hyped. Perhaps if I see this on draught I’ll ask for a sample and compare notes.

(All occasions ipa): Au nez je trouvais que le côté fromage de la levure était trop évident mais en bouche c’est une aventure de gorgée en gorgée. Belle complexité entre le sapinage, l’ecorce d’orange et une touche poivrée.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
September 2011. Bottle. Pours amber color with a foamy white head. The pine and citrus really comes through followed by a long and hoppy finish. This is a great DIPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle. Labeled All Occasions IPA. Pours a murky amber with medium head and nice lacing. Aromas of funky caramel, spruce, and a little grapefruit. Flavor of rubber, toasted malts, sourdough, and hints of citrus (limes). Chewy. Stretching an IPA but quite good.
