3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a hazy golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma of biscuity and crackery malts, and dry earthy floral hops. Flavour is very earthy and dry, with wet leaves, mild dry earthy hops, and some biscuity and crackery malts. Mild and restrained. Nothing overly stimulating, but no surprise given the Cascade hops. Still, decent stuff.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
As single hopped IPAs go... This was quite good. Not super complex, but still refreshing and tasty. Citrus and pine on the nose and tongue as expected with a healthy bitterness. I tend to like more complex IPAs... But this was still good.

Aroma is citrus with pine notes. Smells nice. Taste is similar with a nice bitterness from the cascade hops. Minimal malt shines through the nice hop bitterness. Enjoying this one.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650mL bottle to flute
Sweet straw, hay, pine and floweryness. Light clear amber with a lot of effervescence and a bubbly white head. Taste is nice, but very light for an IPA, maybe I waited too long. This has cascade all over it, very aromatic but no slam you in the face hoppiness.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2012-12-28, draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 6% ABV, 6-4-7-4-14=35
Hazy golden color with creamy head. Mild aroma of malt and hops. It has some toffee flavor, the mouthfeel is quite dry, there are some biscuity traces and a moderate but pleasant hopping. Later, some resins tickle the tongue.
A good beer, but, as for the bottle, with a fresh dryhop more is expected.
2012-12-27, bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver, 6% ABV, 6-4-7-4-14=35
Golden color, the head is rather frothy, medium sized. The aroma is mild, there is some manure, light caramel and toffee. Toffee flavor, the mouthfeel is correctly dry; strong bitterness, not exaggerated, with soft resins and very mild fruity character.
A good beer, but the freshness of the hopping is not so highlighted.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber orange pour with white head. Aroma is really weedy with hints of citrus and sweet notes. Medium bodied, oily mouth feel. Flavour is grass, grapefruit and other fruits. Quite bitter, but nicely balanced with oily hops and a long bitter finish. Interesting to taste the cascade hop isolated.
