3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Clear golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. The nose is very much like that of instant Lipton® iced tea with lemon. Medium toffee sweetness followed by moderate citrus peel bitterness. Medium-bodied with a 2%-milk mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Bitter-sweet and then astringent, drying finish. Kudos to Gillard for sharing the bottle!

It is a warm golden beer with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of mango, citrus, peach, spruce needles and caramel. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of fruit, mango, citrus, spruce and caramel. It is very well balanced and charmingly uncomplicated.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home. Pours a clear, yellow golden appearance with an off white head. Sweet grapefruit, orange citrusy, soft aroma. Somewhat bitter, grapefruity, orange creamy, herbal, a touch floral flavor. Again, not hard to drink but kind of lacks inspiration.

12 oz. bottle, pours hazy golden with a small white head. Great aroma of grapefruit, citrus and piney hops, and caramel malt. The flavour reveals an intense fruitiness, of mango, peach, grapefruit and orange, with pungent citrusy hops and just enough malt backing. Very well made.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I’m not always a big fan of IPAs, but I could’t find much wrong with this. Great hops ratio and better coloring than your typical IPA. This and Samuel Smith’s are both IPAs that kind of transcend the norm.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A generic IPA. This one has mild hops, and is fairly malty. It is a bit watered down imo.
