3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice gold/honey color with a little lacing and minimal to no head retention. Smells malty and slightly fruity. Has a sweeter taste than I expected, but is not overly sweet. This is a good IPA, but not one that I’d call a session beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep golden color with a nice white head. Aroma leads with dried fruit (dates, apricots) before a bit of dankness follows. Taste starts just on the sweet side with more fruit and malt before a hearty bitterness kicks in. Nice long finish. Not much in the way of pine or resin. I’ve seen this referred to as an English IPA, which makes sense.

Aromas of sweet corn, concord grape, strawberry candy, peach, pink grapefruit. Nearly clear complexion, the hue is light amber with deep orange highlights, and the head foam is sticky, bubbly white with great retention. Quite dry, sharp citrus rind upfront, orange candy, bitter iced black tea. Light-medium bodied, crisp.

From bottle, clear amber pour with head on the heavier side. Good retention. Aroma is floral and citrus hops with some toasted malt. Taste definitely showcases some toastiness with very palatable citrus and subtle earthiness all around. Always a solid brew.

12 oz bottle from Niagara Falls Wegmans. Pours a clear deep golden colour with modest-sized white head. Aroma is fruity and sweetish with herbal hoppiness and grains. Flavour is apricot and other tropical fruit, a solid herbal and slightly floral bitterness as well as some dusty grains. Dry finish. Average plus body. Nice.
