3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled On: August 3, 2011
I tried this beer in August 27,2011 after purchasing from the Queen’s Quay LCBO outlet in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent amber colour with a long lasting light tan head. The aroma is fresh caramel, floral hops, and grass. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is caramel, with citrus and yeasty hints in the background.

This IPA poured a cloudy medium amber colour with a soapy, white head. To the nose there are scents of grass, citrus, earth and hay. First sip was slightly watery with flavours of grass/citrus hopps, hay and cereal. Finish is bitter with grassy hop flavour lingering.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours light amber in colour, small head, but tonnes of lacing. Not much aroma (like all GR beers) and taste if somewhat bitter. Not an impressive APA. Missed the mark here (first time).

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rusty reddish hazy pour with a nice clingy white head. Draft at Gigs in London. Somewhat weak scent of citrus and fresh cut grass. Wet and refreshing. A bust of flavours at first that slowly mellows to almost nothing in the finish. It has just a touch of that pale ale bite right in the middle. Very subtle despite the name. Best beer I’ve had so far tonight.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
500mL bottle to wine glass
Aroma of hay and caramel malts. Clear reddish amber with almost no head. Burnt malts with a nice piney bitterness. Unfortunately this brew is a bit watery and thin or it would have been much better.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy deep gold with a thin white cap. The aroma is citrusy, malty, candy orange, good. The flavour starts out with a harsh hop bitterness, but then quickly moves onto a light refreshing mingle of malt and hop, and then ends with some grapefruit bitterness. Finish is a bit soapy.
It does a few things bad, but it does most things well. Decent brew.

Bottle purchased at the Dundurn LCBO. Pours copper copper colour with a white head. No lacing. Smells like candy, almost bubblegum really. Tastes quite sweet and a tiny bit bitter. Interesting brew.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours near-clear copper-bronze, minimal head. Aroma is led by the grainy malts - almost a pilsner-esque character to it. Taste is similar with mild malt sweetness cut by pretty persuasive bitterness. Not too much hop aromas. A little fruityness at the end, with a little caramel.
