Bottle. Deep orange pour with a medium head, good lacing. Great grapefruit aroma. Taste is citrus, grapefruit. Nice clean drinking, fairly bitter but not overpowering. Terrific IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the Victory Cafe. Hazy light gold with a thin white head and some lacing. Complexly sweet aromas of tropical fruit with some spruce hoppiness. Taste is quite bitter at first and then moves into a more mellow fruity sweetness. Maybe a bit too fruity for my taste. Otherwise a dry finish and a pillowy mouthfeel through the CO2. Quite good.

This is a seriously good IPA. Pours a dark orange. The aroma is all grapefruit. On the palate is foam, citrus, and a nicely balanced hops. Long bitter finish. Excellent. Recommended.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Oranges, flowers and resins provide plenty of juicy hoppiness in this otherwise sticky IPA.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam covers the cloudy honey blond.
-Carbonation is quite low.
-Mouthfeel could be crisper and flavors better defined (maybe a question of freshness?).
-Hops aren’t as aromatic as they are flavorful.
-Residual sugar level is relatively high.
On tap at Volo.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Has a poignant citrus nose on a light golden body with a fairly thin white head. The "big C" hops deliver with fruity hops. Grapefruit is present, but not overpowering, backed up by a very juicy mixture of other citrus and tropical hop accents. A west-coast-IPA-style sweet bready malt effectively underpins this punchy IPA. A simple but very tasty beer.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a bottle pours clear and golden, aroma is passion fruit and biscuity malt. Flavor is citrusy hops and biscuity malt finish is semi sweet. Medium carb medium body.

Rating number 500
lovely citrus pine aroma
Pours a nice cloudy orange with a nice good sized white froth
Not as grapefruity as some American IPA’s but very nice dry hoppy finish

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 np bottle. Pours a hazy, pale orange with a thin, off white head that leaves mild lacing. Aroma has big notes of pine, resin, citrus, and a hint of bread. Taste is bitter but not overblown. Notes of resin, orange citrus, grapefruit, and pine with a drawn out, bitter aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. Clean, refreshing texture with a dry finish. Overall a really nice IPA. Very drinkable with lots of pine, resin, and citrus. Worth getting!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
650ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a hazy pale orange with a small off white head that leaves good lace. Big nose of citrus with light background of toast. Bitter from start to finish with grapefruit dominant and enough sweet malts and a touch of honey to smooth things out a bit but the hops are the star. Medium slick body with nice carbonation and a great dry bitter finish that just keeps going. Love it.
