3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had a sampler glass at the brewery. Appearance: translucent brown, small head. Aroma: raspberries, blueberries, spring time, oh so delightful! Palate: smooth, dry finish, medium bodied. Taste: slightly sweet, slightly bitter. Probably the best of the bunch at Howe Sound. One of the few I would walk away with.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
1L Bottle. Pours a hazy, reddish amber with a lasting tan head that laces. Aroma of citrus. Tastes fairly malty, warming, with moderate bitterness, some pine and citrus. Finishes with a citrus bitterness. Very, very good...

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice light caramel color with very slight haze and little head, just some bubbles of various sizes. Little lace. Slight citric hop aroma with a malty aroma as well. Malt body is solid but not quite chewy. Balanced by solid hop punch, which is not overpowering. Easy drinking for a DIPA, little alcohol burn. I’d drink it again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours with thick overflowing head that is golden yellow. Beer is light brown lots of carbanation.
Light flowery hop aromas
First sip is creamy hops floating on sweet slightly atringent beer.
The brew is smooth and nicely aged. Like a well balanced hop tea.
Aftertaste is white birch bark bitter tempered with cream.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a 1 L Bottle. Was very disappointed, as I thought this would be a lot more flavorful and hoppy. The best part of this beer is its name.

Served in a 4oz taster at Barley Brothers in Winnipeg. Again, a decent IPA - but could use more body.
