Bottle. Cloudy, dark orange-amber pour. Quite aromatic, with lots of hoppy citrus, pineapple and some caramel. Flavour is hop bitterness with a good amount of malt coming through underneath. Lots of citrus and some nice biscuit notes. A little thin on the finish, but a great IPA overall.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy dark amber with a large big-bubbled head, swirls of lace. The aroma is a good combo of hop and malt, taste is varied: with a sip, hops quickly dominate. With a large swallow, malt takes the opening, yields to hops, reasserts itself. The hops are quite dry on the roof of the mouth, which allows a little malt to emerge at the far end. Overall, an excellent brew, balanced and bold.

Color ámbar anaranjado con espuma blanca. aromas de pino, resinas y ligero cítrico. En boca tiene una textura media y sedosa agradable a la que acompaña un intenso (casi abrasivo) amargor resinoso y que pica un poco. Muy sabrosa.

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear copper pour with a thin white head. Very light aroma. Some hops but mainly bitter grass notes. Mild flavor as well. Some very light hops with a bitter finish and aftertaste. Fades quickly but very easy to drink a good amount of.

America IPA. From the bottle at Winston's in Saskatoon. Pours cloudy orange, smaller head. Aroma of bitter grapefruit, breast malts and pine. Smoother velvet texture. Nice caramel malt back bone that finishes with a grapefruit, dry bitterness . Nice on a chilly evening, you can snuggle up with this beer.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled at SBWF. Clear deep golden, coarse head. Caramelly nose wit hfaint grapefruit. Sweetish with medium-full body and rounded mouthfeel. Fruity and syrupy with more caramel than citrus. Mid bitter finish. Not sure if the importer are trying to promote the beer by using old samples, as the hop character is near zero. The malt character on the other hand is a syrupy mess, so I wouldn’t really bother anyway.
