3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted from draft. Pours a clear gold with fluffy white head. Aroma is citrus fruit with some pine and a little bready malt sweet smell. Taste is very well balanced. Moderate clean bitterness throughout with a nice mild sweet malt backbone. Citrus, caramel, pine, biscuits, grass flavors. Very solid IPA.

Pint. Muted aroma. Sort of funky hops. Medium body sort of hoppy but has a fast flavour profile and is rather forgetful as an IPA.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 1/20
Golden with a generous head. Smells very wheaty and sour with gooseberry. Taste is acrid pine and earwax bitter. It’s all wheat and little else. I love bitter bitter beers but for some reason I find this really challenging (read as unpleasant) and have had before so not a dud. For me the bottle should say wheat beer, nothing like the English IPA promised.

Ce n’est pas un produit très palpitant à déguster mais somme toute respectable. Au nez, je sens plus les céréales que les houblons, ce qui n’est pas typique pour le style. Ce qui lui nuit le plus est son apparence...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear light orange with a nice white head. Head retention is ok. Aroma: Not much on the aroma but some slight citrus, light hop bitterness, faint peppercorns and light malt. Taste: Very light on taste as well. Hop bitterness is more pronounced, citrus is mellow, very light peppercorns, faint tropical fruit and malt. Finishing with a crisp, slightly dry, feel in the mouth. Overall I was somewhat disappointed. I was expecting a very aromatic, fruity, bitter and spice filled beer. However, I am comparing this to the West Coast IPA?s and I think that is a bit unfair. Reading the label I see that the alcohol and IBU?s are not as high as the West Coast style. I believe they only used one style of hops and that is what might causes the lack of aroma and flavor. Considering all this, I do believe this is a good IPA. Sure it won?t destroy your palate but it is a great everyday go-to brew. Cheers! Kanpai! Salud! Prost!

Clear golden pour with a frothy white head. Aroma was mild citrus fruits, bready malt, grass, touch of pine. Flavors were sharp with good citrus and grassy hops, biting bitter finish. Tingly carbonation. Overall a pleasure to drink. Well executed, balanced, classic.

Yellow pour with white head. Grassy hop aroma, pine bitter up front, pleasant malt palate with grassy finish. This beer does not taste offensive but I still feel offended by it.
