4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2015 Bomber from the LCBO. Pours a cloudy medium orange with a luxurious thick white head leaving a fair amount of lacing.
Aromas of citrus and mango, some molasses with a touch of pine.
Very creamy mouthfeel.
Tastes are of orange peel, but not overly bitter. Almost creamsickle-like at times. Light caramel backbone especially on the swallow.
Overall I am a growing fan of Citra hops and this one illustrates all of the good things that type of hop brings to the beer glass.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle from Castro’s Lounge. Cloudy amber. Fantastic citrus candy aroma. Terrific sweet fruity citrus taste up front. Hoppy bitter finish, but not too bitter. Very well-balanced IPA. Full somewhat sticky body. Great!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2014 Strong scent of grapefruit, orange, and hops. Clear orange-gold colour. Bitter upfront with clean finish; flavours of citrus and honey. Medium body with mild carbonation. A really good IPA, as it’s not too abrasive, and it’s clean finish doesn’t make the 650ml bottle a battle against bitter.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
650ml bottle from the lcbo
These guys are making some awesome beers
what an aroma from a regular ipa? sure it is not a double or imperial
you can smell the raw hops which is weird but wonderful at the the same time it really smells like a bowel of pelletized hops
nice unfiltered dark yellow with a big frothy sticky head with huge lacing
The taste is more subdued then the aroma would suggest but still nice more sweet the bitter but bitter enough to make this a great beer

Blonde orangé. Très fraiche. Belle amertume. Citronné. Légèrement poivrée. Agrume. Pamplemousse. Très florale. Légère base malté/sucré. Houblons résineux. Rafraichissante. Géniale.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
650ml bottle. Pours a hazy pale yellow with an off-white head. VERY fragrant nose, grapefruit, light dried strawberries, lots of resinous hops, light grassy notes, and light cannabis. Taste wise herbal notes, fruity and resinous hops up front that lead into more of the same, and a very pleasant fruit forward finish, (white grapefruit). It’s VERY well balanced, and not overpowering in anyway. For a 6.6% beer, this might be a little too easy drinking. Well done.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 mL bottle. Pours a hazy peach nectar with a fluffy cap of white foam. Aromas of mango, passionfruit, peach, light pine and mild resin with some honeycomb like sweetness. Slightly sweet but finishes dry and mildly bitter. Palate is lightly sticky, with a light to moderate body and average carbonation. Delightfully flavourful and balanced; stupendously drinkable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Hazy pale orange-amber with a generous fluffy white head that fades slowly and leaves great lace. Nose is loaded with resinous pine, citrus and floral hops. Just sweet enough in the start to balance the huge citrus bitterness in the middle and end. Medium slick mouth and a dry chewy finish. Need to pick up more before they are all gone...
