3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Draught at Bryden’s, Toronto, Sept 23 2012) Poured a hazy orange colour with a thin, white, short-lived head. aroma dominated by grapefruit peel and a bit of juicyness, leafy hops, a little malt sweetness. Early palate again grapefruit peel, floral with a bit of resiny tartness, light but slightly sticky sweetness to the malt and a moderately bitter and balanced dry citric finish. Mouthfeel is medium, carbonation a little stronger than ideal IMO. Quite pine-free GL IPA, refreshing with a fruity crispness, would be a great patio brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange pour with a fast fading white head. Aroma is orange and tangerine with a straightforward hop component. A touch of juicy fruit character (tropical) with nothing too dominant one way or the other. Assertive, but still balanced bitterness. Starts to have a touch of resinousness as it warms up. No real pine character at all, which is somewhat unique. Bitterness really sneaks up on you here.

On tap at bar hop 2012 TBW. Boom. Copper pour, delicate tan head. Loads of lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit, pineapple, a little pine, caramel, mango and cherry. A little bready on the nose. Medium and sticky. Bitter citrus and a little fruity sweet. Full on bitter hoppy finish. A teeny but boozy, but all in all, really balanced and refreshing. Good original stuff!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at Volo GLB tasting. Pours a solid amber with a decent enduring frothy off-white head. Aroma is full on citrus, fruity, with an evident malt back that works well in counter-point.. Taste is very bitter but the malt back is there to provide some balance. Finish is pleasingly bitter but bot overwhelming. Solid.

Cask at volo. Great citrus aroma, orange colour. A tart taste that becomes astringent and prevents drinkability a few sips in.

Cask at Volo. Pours a cloudy golden-orange with an average size long-lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma is citrusy and quite hoppy along with more fruit, some yeast and sweet malt in the back. Hoppy, citrusy flavour with a finish that is quite bitter. Average bodied. A great IPA, well done!
