3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I tried this beer on October 14, 2009 afgter purchasing a 6 pack from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured a translucent red into the glass with a huge rocky off-white head that lasted a while. The aroma was weakly hoppy with a definite malt presence. The mouthfeel was weak-bodied, almost watery with a low level of carbonation. The flavour was mildly malty with a good hoppy finish. A hoppier flavour profile would have been nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2015 355ml bottle. Pours a clear amber with a creamy, half-finger, off-white head that thins to a ring and film. Solid lacing clings to the glass.Aroma is hoppy with a hint of bread and citrus.Taste is a bit bitter with a short, slightly dry aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. A touch watery in the mouth but still plenty of texture to hang on to.Not a bad offering. Overall pretty tasty. Bready toasted biscuit, bit of pine and resin, and some citrus.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour at the green room with marina & Janet is chestnut dark with a thin cap. Taste is light coffee, left of centre hopping & stark bitterness. Marina says she’s not so much on the finish, that it "falls off like the end of a glacier" & she has a point, don’t she? Decent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This ale poured a dark amber colour with a quick living, light tan coloured head. Scents include hopps, grass, citrus and caramel. First taste was nicely carbonated with flavours of tea, malt, hopps, and grass. Finish is slightly hoppy with a little bitter flavor with tea lingering.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Single bottle purchased from Zyn Liquor in Calgary, AB on 09/01/2012. Colour: Medium brown/orange with low white lacing. Nose: Very brown grain dominant with a mix of dirty dish towel. More swirling brings out seashore lake water. Where are the distinct hops? Taste: medium-light sweet, medium bitter, medium-light sour. If not for a slight caramel underlay, this one would have been more hop forward I’m sure. That said, the hops are present but not dominant and show a real vegetative earthy character. There is a some more brown grain (rice) late.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
341ml bottle. Coppery orange pour with slightly off-white head. Very little lacing. Smells of burnt malt and sugar with some cow pattie and yeasty notes. Just plain weird and confused in the mouth. Thin, and the only impression I really got was danelion stalk with a little bitter twang. I don’t know if the name is supposed to purposefully misguide people or if these guys are still trying to get their act together.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle purchased at the LCBO. Pours a copper/ gold with very small amount of white head and no real lacing at all. The Aroma is a little hop, maybe subtle berry. Taste is hoppy (but not nearly what I expected), and bitter. Not bad, glad to have something out of Ontario to be a little proud of.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tried at Edmonton Craft Beerfest 2015. Always enjoy Flying Monkeys. This one is comparable to their other IPAs/ISAs in the fruity, tropical citrus notes; but it also has a distinctive malt profile and a dangerous drinkability with the 5% abv. Delicious!

Obefintlig doft men då är den också serverad i ett okupat glas. Delar en flarra med Johan på pipes. Lättdrucken och nästan läskande
