2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. 341. Pours golden orange amber with a small white head. Aroma of caramel, hops. Taste is sweet upfront with a mildly bitter finish for the style. I usually like less bitter IPAs but this one truly was nothing special.

341 mL bottle. Fairly orange pour with a thin to medium white head that doesn’t last long. Okay IPA, caramel malt body, some citrus and with grapefruit hops in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Granville Island Brewing. Clear orange pour with a white head. Really grassy and piney. Some bread, mild citrus, and earthy hops. A strong nuttiness to the flavor. Sweet bread and mild citrus. Tons of pine and grass. Decent amount of bitterness. Kind of zesty on the finish.

341 ml bottle. Pours a subtly veiled golden pale amber with a short lived white head. Flavor is caramel, grains, resin, corn. Finish is herbal hop, some grapefruits...definitely lacking in bitterness, here...medium body, somewhat sticky mouthfeel, average carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled from the brewery shop. Quite a fragrant aroma, with elderflower and honey notes. Strongly flavoured with a whisky tang in there, vying with some great dry woody notes and background caramel. More whisky in the finish and some medicinal flavour too.

341 mL bottle. Pours a dark orange with a small head and nice lacing. Hoppy grapefruit aroma. Not bitter in the tongue. Really pleasant and well balanced. Long finish. Nicely crafted.

3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Hooleys. This one pours a deep copper colour with just a bit of white head. Lots of malt and caramel flavours. Not a bad IPA overall.

I’m also surprised the ratings aren’t higher for this one. Decent IPA if not terribly original. Has a pretty one note hoppy flavor with the signature Granville Island aftertaste.

I thought its ratings would be higher than this, but at the same time I am not surprised. I doesn’t really do anything wrong, but it plays it real safe. A very good starter IPA to ween people off of lesser brews. It is a good IPA, and I would buy it again, but I won’t go nuts.

Bottle. Small head. Lime and grapefruit in the aroma. Rather forgettable...
