Rating #1799 - 2015.06.27 - Bottle. Lots of citrusy floral hops on the nose erupting from this foaming amber pour. Sharp hoppy overtones of citrusy, tropical sweetness pronounced into a firm bitterness, a balanced, crisp finish. Fantastic.

Draft. Pale orange in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are a nice blend of tropical (mango and guava) and white grapefruit. Definitely more citric in the mouth, backed by elements of pale male and cut grass. Medium bodied with a solid, sharp bitterness. Well balanced.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: cloudy pale amber with two fingers of rocky ivory head, excellent retention and lacing. (4/5) Aroma: citrus, floral, pale and caramel malt, resiny pine. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (6/10) Palate: medium body tending a little to the watery, moderate-low carbonation, lingering and building bitter finish. (4/5)
Just slightly disappointing. The aromas promise a punchy bright citrus and pine assault, but on the tongue the malt seems to gain traction quickly, and comes through as more caramel than pale. (Reminiscent of those malty DIPAís I love to dismiss.) Itís particularly odd, because the finish is also moderately aggressive bitter, so itís only in the middle where it really fails to deliver. The slightly watery body and slightly low carbonation arenít particularly helping, either. And yes, I realize Iím damning this with faint praise, but speaking from last Fridayís experience before the Flames game, I can assure you that this is not the case, and that itís possible to enjoy quite a few of these in succession, with friends. (15/20)

Draft pour pint at Medina. On vacation, so breakfast beers are the obvious choice. Enjoyed earlier today, and took notes. Pours a bright golden color with a ton of foam head and lace. Sweet mango and pine aroma. Flavor is heavy with tropical fruit, and very low bitter. Some orange late. Very nice IPA overall.
