3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet caramel malt base with berry-like fruity sweetness, plenty of citrus, pine and floral hops in the nose. Clear golden brown body is topped by a decent white head that recedes slowly to a low cover with some nice lacing. Nice thick chewy caramel.bread-like malt base supports strong but balanced hop bitterness. Floral hop flavours in the aftertaste. Medium body with pleasant effervescence. Really well done. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle purchased at Brewery Creek in Nov-09.

1litre bottle from 16th St. Liquor in West Van. Pours a clear amber with a thin head. Aroma is sharp west coast hops with little identifiable malt. Taste is all hops with very little malt to report...leaves a puckering bitterness on the tongue but not one that is very complex. It’s average, not exceptional.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2010 On tap at the Alibi Room - pours a golden/red. Aroma of skunky hops, herbs and marijuana. Flavour is potent herbal hops with a lingering bitterness. Fairly unspectacular IPA, but at the same time refreshing.
