3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Found a 6 pack of it at the LCBO and really enjoyed it. Not quite hoppy enough for me but there was a good depth of flavour that made up for it. Also very sessionable, I could really drink it all night. Also just love the packaging a marketing of it, really just makes it a much more intriguing beer to drink.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
From bottle. pours a dark copper colour with a reasonable head that doesn’t vanish. Typical IPA aroma, sweet, hops, citrus fruits, could linger a little longer. Inviting though. Nice bitter flavour but dissapointingly shortlived with almost nothing left on the tongue. Perhaps a little too carbonated for my tastes. Not bad but definitely room for tweeking.

On tap at Johnny Farinas. Pours a very dark amber with a moderate white head leaving moderate lacing.
On the nose citrus hops with just a hint of tea.
Tastes of citrus with some light maltiness. More tea and a mild bitterness on the follow through.
An offbeat quality brew.

Pours a red amber with a soft foam head. Subtle citrus and hop aroma, really nothing overpowering. Flavourful, but not as bitter as I like, when it comes to your typical pale ale. Almost pale is right.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bordering between red and amber in colour with a thick foamy cap. Smells of citrus, pine and carmalized sugar. Some roasty malt and piney hop flavour with a good punch of bitterness at the end.

floral and fruits hits the nose on smelling after pouring into glass. dark amber in color, with noticeable carbonation in glass. Smooth texture and with a bitter finish but not too yowzah! I get from some hoppier beers. This is not a bad beer and is 5% ABV, some of the other IPA’s and hoppier beers I have had are over 6%. This is a surprising beer, pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
July 28 2012. Bottle pours dark clear amber with an inch foamy head that settles to ring and leaves slight lacing. Aroma of citrus and grassy pine hops. Slight grapefruit and floral hints in aroma. Taste has all of these elements in a subtle blend that balances well and doesn't struggle with each other for dominance. It is definitely a hopsy brew but only "almost". That is, the flavours are good but lacking in intensity. There is no bite or kick I expected from this brewery. Still, nice easy drinking, with smooth palate and crisp finish without the bitter aftertaste associated with others in the family. A good beginners beer to their other full-bodied brews.
