2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Looks like a nice pint, deep amber creamy of white crown floating on top. Aroma is hidden... pint might have poured to cold. Sweet fuzzy peach candy is about all I get out of the nose....... so very mild. Flavour has a large sweetness to it, peach but not, melon but not, not honey, almost bubble gum. Lively carbonation. Very well balanced..... almost to balanced I WANT MORE HOPS DAMMIT. Drinks like a APA not a IIPA. Dusty dry finish. Whats holding this beer back. Completly drinkable boring IIPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a slightly chilled 1L bottle into a pint glass.
Biggest aroma here is caramel followed by a sweet maltiness. I sense a little bit of floral notes too. Pours to a slightly cloudy light amber colour with an ample head and nice lacing. Initially, it seems a bit watery but that went away after a few sips. This IPA has a well balanced hop/malt profile and a nice bitter finish. All in all a decent IPA, but not spectacular. I could see the being a nice session beer.

Rating #784 - Nov 26, 2013 - 1L swingtop from Coop.. Clear golden pour with a bubbly white foam, spotty lacing. Citrusy sweet, mild floral hops on the nose.. Mouthfeel crisp, mild alcohol warmth, low-medium carbonation. Taste is sweet orangey lemony notes with the spicy tang and hoppy bite lingers into the finish. I need you now tonight.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Colour: Fizzy peach-red, medium low head. Nose: Olive, hummus, roast chicken, tart hop, what an odd mix. Taste: Rich and vibrant lightly sugared hops burst onto the scene, candied figs follow, delicious malt, woody shrubs, and blistering bitter hops again to end the show. Medium finish. Just a touch over-carbonated but a damn good show.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Medium amber orange pour with a surging, thick off-white head, lots of lacing. Caramelly, sweet nose on this with some citrusy hoppy notes. Moderately sweet body with a sharp resinous finish cut into by a lot of booziness. Not a lot of the aromatics I associate with IPAs here, some earthy herbal qualities but mostly booze and one dimensional bitter. Not as good as other Howe Sound beers I’ve had, but at least I got a cool swing top bottle out of it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is a rich hop profile with citrus, lemon grass and a nice earthiness. Taste is a light sweet crisp maltiness with a fairly dominant hop body which comprises of grapefruit and tanin which leaves light bitterness burn on finish. Pretty well balanced overall. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

Un bon impériale très malté. Pas d’agrumes juste de houblon dans l’arôme et le goût. Un peu sombre pour le se est pas aussi complexe pour que ça soit une très bonne impériale mais un bon boisson quand même!
