3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (12 oz). Traded by northropfrye, thanks Andrew! Clear golden/amber with a huge slowly diminishing white head and major lacing. Aroma of floral hops, some citrus with piney and herbal notes. Taste is piney and floral with a good malty backbone and slight citrus. Moderate bitter finish. Dry mouthfeel. Good sessionable IPA with a tad too much malty presence for my liking but still drinkable and thirst quenching.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2013 lots going on here - you know you are drinking a serious IPA with the first sip, a touch of carmel, nice hops, a bit of a bite, average head, not too much alcohol, surprisingly rich mouth feel

Modest head and lighter lager body with a bit of decent fogginess. Aroma of hops with plenty of bread. Flavour is nice dry hops with a sour finish. A good, balanced IPA with a hint of complexity.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is pretty solid. Pours orange, clear, with lit miter head and a finger or so of clumpy, frothy lacing. Nose is a bit quiet, some breakfast tea. Notes of cereal, some light fruit, lots of piney bitterness. Taste is light sweet medium/heavy bitter. Full ish body with lots of carbonation and a pretty long bitter finish.

Bottle at Community (old Brewsters in Castledowns), 6%. Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hoppy overtones, mlid citrusy, but mostly piney, and earthy. Taste is more of the same, dry hops (resinous, piney stickyness) and toasted bread dough malts dominating the flavour, with a hint of sweetness. Definitely comes off as a british ipa despite the northwest hops (Cascade, Amarillo) - not a ton of grapefruit on the nose or palate- but the finish isnt overly dry, but balanced and satisfying. Delicious.

Finally, my first beer from Manitoba. Bottle courtesy of toffsbury. Pours hazy amber with nearly no head. Aroma of raisins and citrus fruits. Slightly fruity taste, with some spice, pine, and a dry bitter finish. Good enough IPA to make me willing to try other stuff from these guys, if I ever get the chance.

Everything a good IPA should be; great piney, grapefruit hops and rich malt on the nose. Aromas follow through on the palate with an appetizing bitter finish. A definite "go-to" for IPA lovers.
