3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1 litre swing-top bottle poured a slightly hazy golden-orange color with an abundant off-white head and loads of lace. Aromas of citrus and floral hops and some grainy malt. Taste is very well balanced between the malts and hops with both sweetness and the bitter. A fine medium body and plenty of carbonation make this an overall enjoyable drinking experience.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent IPA, though it’s pretty malt-forward, similar to many Canadian IPAs that seem to have that English-style slant. Malt flavors are rich with bread dough, bitter cocoa powder and toast. Hops mostly offer flavors of citrus rind and grass. Hop aromas are a bit restrained, with just a slight floral hint. A moderate bitterness is balanced with a mild sweetness. Slightly sticky finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
1L bottle. High carbonation with an almost lemon cream coloured head and has cloudy orange colour. aromas are fruit forward, hoppy citrus note and only slight malted notes. The palate is medium to fuller bodied tastes dry hopped bitterness mixed with fruity hoppy notes. Lacks any real complexity and has a slight metallic feel to the finish but a pretty good everyday , high carbonation IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It pours an amber color with a nice creamy off white head and a bunch of lacing. It has a medium amount of carbonation.
The aroma is nothing special. I am getting some malt and a little citrus.
The flavor is actually a well balanced. I am getting some good malt,citrus and a little toffee. Just a touch of pine thrown into the mix. Just the right amount of hop’s thrown in there.
It finishes with a long bitterness that really lingers around. I like this one and could even see it being a session beer. Howe’s stuff is usually just average. But this one is above overall.
