3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Great Lakes Anniversary BBQ. Pours a clear orange colour with a little head that seems to persist. Smells really nice, some malty sweetness and some really nice citrus, maybe orange? Palate is a bit watery but still seems to have medium body. Taste is worse than the smell, goes straight to hoppy and doesn’t go back. Aftertaste is all grapefruit. Decently refreshing but lacking in complexity.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2013 a reddish tinge to this one. A big IBU, big bitterness, very tasty. Neutral aroma. Backed up by a decent malt backbone. Had this on nitro, which lessened the bitterness gave it a lace sheet, more drinkable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 25, 2012 2012-04-21. Lightly hazy orange body. Big aroma, odd funky grapefruit, pith, bit odd but enjoyable. 7+ Flavour has a good amount of grapefruit, but of tropical fruit and modest bitterness throughout. 7+ Average to light bodied palate, light carbonation. Enjoyable, this was one of the better ones of the day but I think it is much better presented on tap. 7+/3/7+/3/15+ Blind Tasting on Cask at Volo IPA Challenge
2011-11-25. Crisp orange body, small white head. 3+ Lovely hoppy bitterness, nice citrus character, orange and tangerine, light resin touches. Yumm! 9+ Modest aroma, mild citrus notes. 7+ Average bodied palate. 3+ Lovely IPA. 8/3/9/3/18 - 4.1 On tap at Volo, Toronto
