3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle [All Occasion IPA]: Pours a dark yellow with a tinge of orange and a tightly laced foamy white head. Quite effervescent in the glass. Nose is like the floor of a pine forest - a little piney and a little dank/musty with just a hint of sweetness and maybe some over ripe orange rind. Taste is medium bitter with some slight sourness that reminds me a bit of Budweiser. It’s medium bodied and slightly sticky [as you would expect] with soft carbonation and a dry finish. Overall this is a pretty good Imperial IPA but there are much better ones to be had [Oskar Blues Gubna] for a better price point. This was just a little too dank for my tastes but if you are looking for that sort of thing, this beer is worth a shot.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy orange with one finger of fluffy off-white head, excellent retention and moderate lacing. Nose is somewhat muted, citrus and pine, with some sweet malt in the background. Taste starts with sweet caramel, citrus and pine following, with a long bitter finish. Mouth feel is medium to full, with light carbonation and slight warming.
A big beer with an emphatic hop presence attenuated only slightly by the malt. The bitter finish builds as the pint progresses, and lingers long after the glass is empty. Could either do with a little more subtlety in the hop profile, or dispense with the attempt to sugarcoat the hops with malt and go full palate-wrecker.

"All Occasions IPA" aroma of pine and hops, tastes the same. Not a lot of other flavours here, some citrus would have been nice. A decent IPA but not a memorable one.

Bottled as "Evil Twin All Occasions IPA" 330ml@Beer Hunters
Clear orange color, small white head. Piney-woody, a bit herbal hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied. Bitter front, resiny, a bit fruity hoppyness. Crisp. Yeah, all occasions IPA it is, lacks in depth (note: I had Nogne O IPA before this).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, labelled as "All Occassions IPA". Copper orange, hazy, lively head formation. Piney hops and sweet caramel malts, long bitter finish. Not much in the way of aromatics, but age may be a factor here. Still enjoyable enough.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2013 11.2 fl. oz. bottle as All Occasions IPA. Opaque orange brown, foamy off-white head settles and fades. Aroma is boozy caramel malt with a hint of citric resinous hop. Potent boozy taste of rich dense sweet malt up front, woody pine hops, some citrus and earth behind. Soft carbonation, medium-full bodied, less aggressively hopped than it’s North American counterparts, but still: DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)
