3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice citrus and greens in the nose, and quite a nice bitter flavor. A super delicous IPA, that makes my top 10 IPAs, to date.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl bottle, Mulmur, ON, Canada via Michigan. Deep golden colour, creamy thick head that stays full through drinking. Autumn spice aroma, smooth first sip with some caramel and sweet maple, then the bitterness builds for a long finish that isn’t too overpowering.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2013 Nice amber pour with a thinning off-white head, good lacing, sweet aroma with moderate hoppiness, flavor is well balanced with malt and hop, heavy grapefruit and a bit piney, finishes only slightly bitter and dry, very smooth and crisp....great IPA.

this is a deceptively good beer, the citrus is handled very well and comes across in surprising ways

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Flowery hops. Bitter finish. A little too "easy going". Could have had a bigger body and more complexity.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with no real head, just a light lacing of foam along the top. Aroma is of strong, spicy hops. Pretty bitter finish. Could be balanced a little better.

Clear gold with a thin off-white head. Caramel and floral hop aroma. Good thick caramel body with a floral and pine hop finish. Good balance in this one.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2009 Bottled 355ml. It pours a clear amber beer with a decent nicely lasting creamy off white head. Impressive citrusy grassy nose with hints of pineapple, blood orange, lemon, rose, wild strawberries, elderflower, basil and cream. This beer reminds me of Victory hop wallop in a way- wonderful. Excellent hop profile (the dry hopping definately adds to this beer) in the taste where blood orange, lemon, rose, pineapple, elderflower and cream emerge. Decent bitterness. Perfectly balanced. Peppery and grassy. Extremely refreshing. Beautiful lacework. Medium bodied. Dry bitter finish which is reminiscent of blood orange, rose an lemon. Excellent. It’s a remarkably refreshing IPA, best served cool. Underrated in my opinion. I reveled in every sip. A top notch beer from Flying dog. Rerate: This is indeed a great beer! Goddam underrated!
