3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
First off -- this is the kind of ipa that we crave & fight & pull our hair over about in Canada. Solid, sessionable & tasty. Pours deep orange with a nice fluffy cap. Aroma is rich with pine. Tastes great: hoppy, juicy & slightly citrus. If I could get this easily it’d be my regular. Luckily I got four of ’em before i hopped the border. Mail some to me & I won’t return to sender.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy, pale, golden yellow, with minimal head. Aroma has some hops and some citrus zest. Flavor is very grassy, the hops are pretty muted, and there’s a fairly sweet undercurrent. Not one of the better IPAs I’ve tried.

3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pour is cloudy orange. Tan head dies quickly with minimum lacing on glass. Wonderful nose of pine, floral, sugar, caramel, and fresh bakery.
Flavor is of floral hops, grapefruit, and pine. Low carbonation. I love bitter hops, but these are too bitter and overpower the other flavors. This drags the score down.
Also, for this style the alcohol content is too low.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nose is of sweet toffee or caramel. Little head. Light bodied and very smooth, like a draft beer. Rich and citrusy hops with a firm malt sweetness serving as a backbone. The bitterness is assertive but not overpowering, by any stretch, and lingers on in a somewhat dry finish. This is a very well blended beer, and is reminiscent of a really good draft IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at a local Brazilian joint. A lightly bodied ipa with a decent amount of sweetness from the hops. Some notes of citrus, pine. Not bad.

Crisp and clean. Nice herbaceous quality to the hops, though citrus notes dominate. Relatively light and refreshing.
