3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Growler form the Halifax Brewery. Clear copper colour with a decent frothy white head. Medium carbonation. Malt with a good finish of bitter hop. Very pleasant fresh aroma. Rather rich, smooth syrup like texture. Typical Granite character in the beer. Earthy body of malt and a hop flavour. Nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy yellow pint with very large bubbles produced from hand-pumping out of a cask. Stinks of citrus, grass and pine needles. Tastes almost like orange juice laced with hops. Slight malty background compliments an obviously hop-forward beer. Bitterness lasts long after the pint does. Get it whenever you can on cask, this is a great one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Old rate. Growler from Granite in Toronto. Pours a cloudy yellow with minimal head. Aroma is west coast hops, slightly grassy. Flavour is grapefruit with a good malt back. Good balance. Excellent when fresh.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the toronto location. Pours copper in colour with a slight red tinge to it. aromas to me are out there to say the least, although this may have been because they were fermenting beer in the brewery. banana, tomotoe stalk with a little bit of hoppy leaf green notes as well. the beer is medium bodied, hollow in the mid palate and finishes with a hoppy bitterness. It is a dry hopped beer but other than that doesn’t offer much in terms of body and flavour.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at C’est What in Toronto, served in an English pint glass. Pours hazy amber with a frothy off-white "nitro"-style head. The head fades slowly, leaving behind a dense, fine lace. The aroma has notes of pine, resin, flowers and caramel with a touch of citrus. The flavour begins moderately sweet and becomes a touch more so before ending on a nice bitter finish. It is full in body with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a fine ale. The aroma is subtle and rather soft and the malts really shine through in the body. 2010-10-08

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at C’est What? Pale amber-gold pour with a thin white head. The nose has a touch of light hoppiness as well as a soft orangey citrus character. Marmalade as well as some lighter tropical fruit aromatics. A lingering kiss of crackery pale malts. Very fresh and inviting.
