Seeing that I’m the biggest mofo curmudgeon in the building it only makes sense that I slap down my shells for it. Body is fiery like Ann Margaret’s hair but head is 1/4 inch Kate Moss cocaine thin. Not an American style IPA & not the typical southern Ontario swamp water & that’s why I like it.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Wellington Gastropub Ottawa. Pours a dark clear amber with a small, creamy, off-white head. Aromas are earthy malt, icing sugar, and biscuit. Tastes are biscuit, caramel, and a light hop profile. Light body, medium carbonation and a short and mild bitter finish. This is not an IPA, it is an ESB but quite sessionable.

Damn, this is an old school IPA, baby. Nice roasted and smoky flavors blend together well with the slight bitterness, very cohesive.A good amount of residual sweetness though, it is quite full-bodied. Light english hop aroma, everything in balance. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clean copper colour with a frothy light-beige head, great retention and thick foamy lacing. Mostly smells like a irish red ale (caramel, hop) with hints of grapefruits in the background. Also in the back, some apples, burnt wood and nuts. The hops comes out more in the taste with a nice mild bitterness and dryness in the finish. Still, lots going on in the far end. Quite interesting actually. Very nice rendition of the classic style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Deep copper with reddish tint, dirty straw-coloured head. Aroma of floral hops, brown sugar, dried orange peel. Layered tastes: sour cherry up front, lots of maltiness and some sweetness midway followed by a cloying sort of pine bitterness that drags on and obliterates the previous. Medium-bodied, slick, flat and dry.

Bright golden colour with a white head. Powerful grapefruit aroma with a bit of toast. More of the citrus in the taste with a near-perfect amount of bitterness. Medium bodied. This reminded me a lot of Two Hearted Ale.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500 ml bottle purchased at the LCBO in Rideau and King Edward (Ottawa) on May 13, 2012. Dark amber, little head. Very sweet aroma of hops, barley notes. Very malty taste, barley sweetened with a little bitterness of hops, armertume very uninteresting. Just a bad IPA!
