(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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Striking aroma of hops, malt, and fruit. Clear dark orange colour. Prompt bitterness that doesn’t overpower the fruity flavours of the lychee and apricot. Lively on the palate. A very drinkable IPA, but I don’t think I could drink more than a few in a sitting.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottled on Aug 1, 2013. Pours a clear golden with an off-white, one finger, frothy head that thins to a thick film.
Slight carbonation rising. Medium lacing around the glass.
Aroma is large. Notes of citrus fruit and pine with a hint of bread.
Taste is a balanced bitter with a long, drawn out, bitter aftertaste.
Medium body and carbonation. Crisp mouth feel. Not as syrupy as other IPA’s.
I had tried this beer awhile ago and wasn’t a fan. I had been neglecting trying it again but see now I should have given it another go. Refreshing and drinkable and well worth a try! And seeing as the brewery is about 5 mins away it is easily obtainable.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Bishops Arms, Linköping. Clear golden/copper beer with a nice steady lasting head. Hoppy aroma, caramel, herbal notes, floral, citrus, grapefruit, herbal notes. Sharp hoppy flavor, floral, herbal, earthy notes, a bit unclean. I have the feeling this IPA has been in the bottle for a while. I was hoping for more.

Can’t believe I hadnt rated this yet. Big hoppy brew with tons of grapefruit and citrus fruits to boot. Mild caramel malts blend well with copious amoints of hops to create a wonderful resinous hoppy bitter brew.
