3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Caramel and honeyed malts are prominent in the lightly grainy nose along with floral and citrus hop notes. Clear, deep, orange-gold body is topped by a light, fine bubbled white head that recedes to the slightest cover with some scant lacing. Flavour follows the nose. Moderate bitterness offsets caramel malts with primarlily floral and lightly spicy hop flavours. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Fits well into the Fernie portfolio at the higher end of the hop spectrum. Snifter. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle purchased at the BCLS at Hellsgate in June 2012.

On tap at London Pub. How many characters can I use up to just get across my basic review of this beer of "meh"? I guess this many. Tastes like a macro pale ale that's pretty much malt forward.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
66cl Bottle, thanks H&T! Clear light-amber colour, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, malts, some floral hops, bit of resin, classical American IPA. Flavour is medium-sweet, malty, caramel, some resin and grass, light-bitter floral finish. Light-bodied. Decent, but boring IPA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours orange amber in color. Average, large bubble head that flattens out. Smells are more on the malt side, toffee, biscuit. Taste is malt forward, toffee sweetness. Transitions into a nice less sweet finish with a slight bitter hop edge. Very drinkable and balanced, just not that exceptional.

Tap at Calgary International Beer Fest. Pours clear copper with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is herbal and spicy hops, toast and cracker malt, and peach fruity esters. Flavor is toast malt, oxidized (paper), medium hops and bitterness, light fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Lovely creamy head. honey Colour, with moderate carbonation. Lace for days. Mild hoppy nose, citrus tones... excites me, could this be brilliant? Smooth- Malt forward IPA (boo) Lacking the luster of some west coast IPAís i have grown to love. Finishes bitter, but not the delicate bitter I was expecting. Better than some, but I was expecting more. Stamp of a cats ass... looks can be deceiving.

Pour is pale orange. Good lacing on the glass. Distinct hop aroma and kind of floral. Promanent bitter hops. Balance is tipped heavily toward the hop side. Oily, medium body with very long finish.

Yeah fiulijn has summed up perfectly how I feel about this beer. Definitely an American style but no outstanding hop characteristics other than the usual citrus, no resins, a definite "by the book" IPA thatís not off in any way but has nothing new to offer. Glad I tried it, though.
