3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml bottle poured into pint glass. Pours amber with off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma of hops, flowers, caramel. Taste is lots of hops, a little citrus and caramel malt. Well-balanced with a bitter finish. This beer is a standout in the Ontario craft beer scene. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
It’s a fine lil’ brew this one is. Nothing about this screams "totally awesome" but it is tasty and sessionable as heck. Fruity citrus hops and strong caramel comprise the scent of this ruddy-honey fella. A nice lacer, too. Taste is bittersweet, leaning more to the bitter side of things but leaving a lingering sweet, fruity flavour behind. Mid-low carbonation and medium body round out this good time.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice pour from bottle into jar-like glass. Beer is dark bronze--almost light brown. Definitely darker than a normal pale ale (hence the name?). Huge head that sticks for a while. Aroma is deep, rich balance of piney hops and malt. Pretty bitter. Nice beer. You’d expect it to be a lot higher in ABV--impressed that they packed this much flavor into it.

definitely a hard beer to describe. good hop profile, but fairly subdued at the same time. body is extremely light. certainly a good beer, but far from great. more for people who want to slowly move from macro brews to something worth drinking.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Surprised I’ve never rated this. Was one of the first local IPAs I tried a couple of years ago. A nice gateway beer for people looking to breakaway from the norm. On tap. Dark copper with an active fizzy cream head. Creamy mouthfeel. Biscuity maltiness with a sweet floral aroma. Hint of grapefruit. Flavour is moderately bitter throughout with a medium bitter finish. It’s a sessionable hoppy amber.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the Beer Store. Pours a slight hazy amber with a small off white head. Nose is mostly caramel and citrus. Lightly hopped for a low level of bitterness. More grassy than anything. Light to medium body that is quite drinkable. A pale ale designed not to offend anyone.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from LCBO in Ottawa, pours a rich dark amber with a little white head. The aroma was hoppy and sweet, some molasses. Taste a bitterness with hops, some grapefruit and gentle sweet malts. Somewhat forceful but I thought it balanced and a nice ale.
