2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured rich amber in colour with a smallish head a light carbonation. A subtle note of hops on the nose followed by some hop flavour but mostly the roasty backbone dominates...not a bad beer by any standards but more illusion than hoptical....

Clear copper with pathetic white head that disappears like a balding man’s hairline. Faint but pleasant hoppy aroma. Bit harsh carbonation but well blended clear, crisp hop taste. Clear aftertaste too.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

Tap at Bishops Arms. Nose is bready and malty. Pours Amber with a small white head. Taste is a bit sweet and has notes of caramel. Palate is good and sticks to the tongue. Overall a good beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Pours a nice caramel colour, almost amber. First whiff is huge hop resin, which is strange because it’s not a hoppy beer at all. After it breathes a bit the malt character starts to come through: sweet caramel, a bit of hay/grass. Taste is both sweet and bitter without actually being either. Finish is dry and floral with a hint of pine. If nothing else this beer is very well-named.
