3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Interesting and tasty beer. Hazy golden-orange hue. Hops have a real richness to them. Not overly aromatic, but they’re full of zingy flavors. Lots of grass, earthy herbs and citrus (zest/peel). Malt flavors have a delicate complexity. Bread crust and dark-grain crackers. Big alcohol is hidden well. Bitterness is on the mild side. Toffee-like sweetness is mild to moderate. Balanced overall.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours copper/light orange. Sizable head, dissipates but remains. Aromas of grass,caramel,pine,resin and citrus hops. Taste is pretty bitter. Not overpowering like I was hoping it to be. Malty body, actually really well balanced. Another above average beer from this brewery.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2012 Eclipse of the Hop?!? Au contraire, this bad boy is nothing but hop... six varieties, no less. Zesty, herbal, grassy, piney, floral and citrusy, lots of overlapping sensations in this one... though if a Lagerboy such as I can put away a whole litre, it’s probally an IPA Light for all you hardcore hopheads, eh?

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I found this beer quite enjoyable. The pour is a coppery orange with a finger of nice white-beige head. The aroma is fairly hop forward with floral and grass notes, citrus and pine. Fairly malty middle with a sweet caramel and resinous hops taste. The finish is resinous with an overbearing citrus dry hop. Not a bad IIPA, but not the best.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
1 litre swingtop bottle poured a hazy orangey color with big white head and nice lacing. Aroma is primarily hops and a little alcohol. Taste is balanced nicely as there is plenty of malty sweetness to dull the huge amount of hops in this beer. There is not any overpowering bitterness in this beer and it is a pleasing beer to drink.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2011 Rien à dire de négatif. Plus amer que malté. Assez rond en bouche. Bon...J’ai rien à dire de plus, c’est hoppy!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Understated bitterness, less strictly than the style still very enjoyable. Worth a try. Hoppy aromas. Copper to mahogoney body, tiny head, yet with a lace sheet. Orange simcoe flavours, a little fruity, a little boozy, average mouthfeel.
