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.

3.1 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.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy golden amber with a slight, transient white head. Aromas of spice and floral with a touch of citrus. And caramel. And light pitted fruit. Med + body. It’s floral, and fairly earthy, with a slight touch of grapefruit rind. Not harshly bitter, but bitter fer sure. Excellent.

Draught at The Alibi Room, Vancouver, Oct.4. Pours a deep golden-orange with an average size diminishing frothy white head. Nice resiny hop aroma along with biscuity malt. Flavour’s the same, a good amount of resiny hops along with biscuity malt and a dry, bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Orangish straw, hazy, large frothy off-white head, nice lacing.   Dank musty hop nose.   Not too bright, floral, or citrusy.   Rather dull on the tongue, a bit hoppy but not biting.   Not fresh, bright, or with any floral or citrus notes.   Just an overall dank/musty/stale hop aspect.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Soft finish with very mild hoppiness.   This really seems like a stale Pale Ale.   Nothing bright, vibrant, or interesting about this one.   Falls flat right from the start.   Not bad, but soooo boring.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Biscuity and crackery malts with light citrus and floral cascade hops. Straightforward. Pours hazy golden amber, thin head. Citrus and floral hops showcase up front, dry biscuity malts, more Cascade hops round out the finish. Pleasant showcase of cascade hops. Not awesome but it accomplishes what it sets out to do.
