3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to jercraigs for this. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a big frothy white top. Aroma is citrus hops with some belgian yeast characteristics. Taste is citrus hop flavour and moderate bitterness. Small dryness of the palate from the yeast gives it the "belgian" characteristic.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
cask @bent elbow - a medium oranhy-amber infiltered ale with a puffy off white cap. Medium bodied but a very robust english- styled IPA. Big mlts verge on sweet but are held in check by amle golding hops. Aroma and falvour feature a peach-like fruitness for the yeast and warm fermenting. Long wet finsh with a perfect balance.
Iíve had this in several pubs and Iíve always enjoyed it. I hope GLB moves it into a year round draft offering.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a medium orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrus and piney hops is quite dominant with light floral undertones. Taste is a satisfying mix between some floral hoppy notes dominated by citrus and piney notes. Dry caramel malt is pretty discreet and finish is quite bitter. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Not sure I can pick-up the Belgian style in this IPA but quite enjoyable nonetheless.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 mL bottle from the brewery. I love the style and I love the brewery, so my expectations are high. Hazy, rusty, orange with a small head. The head quickly fades to a ring, but laces nicely. The aroma is a little resiny; I prefer floral and/or citrus with this style, but maybe thatís just me. The flavour is dominated by the hop bitterness; Iíd like to see a little more malt/yeast presence. Not bad though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle form the brewery. Pours a slightly hazy orange with a bit of fine white head that dissipates quickly. Smell is floral hops, grassy hops, and some citrus, the "Belgian" part doesnít really come through. Palate is on the lighter side of medium bodied with really strong carbonation. Taste is slightly sweet and fruity at first but then gets bitter quite quickly. The bitter flavour sticks with you quite a bit and lasts a while. Not bad, but missing more of a standard IPA than a Belgian IPA.

Pretty good IPA, had on draft at The Rhino. Cloudy yellow with 1/2" of retained foam. Above average mouthfeel. Good hop aroma. Smooth IPA flavour, bold orange citrus. Lots of lace lines.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Juicy citrus hops balanced with juicy pale fruit, at least until the dryness fatigue sets in. A bit of pot, sulfur and cat pee in the playful hop aromas. Taste has apricots and dried lemon candy, into a dry grassy palate and finish. Dries out the palate because it becomes very leafy. Foggy pale fruit gold look.

Pours cloduy orange with medium lacing. Smells a little of lemon. Starts with some hops and ends pretty smoothly. Bitter finish late in coming - like a delayed effect. High carbonation. Not bad. On tap at Get Well.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Bar hop. Hazy amber appearance with a finger of head. Aroma of citrus hops , very slight hint of yeast and pepper. Citrus hop bitterness up front that is far more balanced than the aroma suggested. Lemon zest, belgian yeast, a very slight spiciness. Medium body with lighter carbonation. Easy drinking.
