3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - Malty with grapefruit/aromatic hops on the nose. Thick white head and a clear amber hue. Very mild with some hop bitterness, caramel/malt character is nicely balanced against hops. A very nondescript and sessionable IPA, but nothing too unique.

3.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Earlís in Yaletown, in Earlís rhino branded sleeve. Not much head, due to pouring technique. What the hell, Iím here for beer, not foam! A darker amber color on this baby. A degree or two too cold for this sipper, but itíll surely warm up. A nice balance of malt and hops here. A winner!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Single bottle received as a Christmas 2011 present :) Colour: Cloudy dark orange with minimal head. The caramel is evident and its intertwined with bubble gum and light pink grapefruit. More swirling brings out watermelon too. Gentle and nice. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium bitter, light sour. The soft fruits do the prologue then the sharp bitter hops swoop in for the long haul. Although still biting on the finish, body falls a bit flat. Very drinkable as a whole.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber with a big fluffy off-white head. Not a lot of aroma. Some citrus scent. Tastes a bit of citrus, but actually quite bitter. Itís ok, but nothing to write home about.

IPA Taste Day Round Two: Hazy amber orange witha small off white head. Aroma of fruity hops and roasty malt. Tastes moderately dry hopped and some caramel malts in the background. Dry bitter finish. A wee bit more friendly for the adventurous Lagerboy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber with citrus nose. Overly large foamy head. Mid range malt. Satisfying hop finish. Something slightly less drinkable about this IPA.

1 L bottle at Volo. Pours a hazy deep, dark orange with small off-white head. Aroma is rich with caramel malt, herbal/grassy hops and a touch of citrus. Big toffee malt and herbal/grassy dominated hoppiness but a touch of citrus. Modest bitterness in finish. Solid body. Nice.
