3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft pint at the brewpub. Hazy reddish-orange pour with a small off-white head. Aroma of citrus, malt, buscuit, floral notes. Flavor follows suit, with a decent balance. Crisp and refreshing. Light body. Mildly bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Hurricane. Very cloudy, unfiltered golden orange. White creamy head. I love an unfiltered ale. Nice citrus aroma and some pale malts. Flavor is a bready malt, fruity finish, and a citrus hop character in every sip. Smooth creamy mouth feel. Medium bodied. Very refreshing.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Poured a cloudy orange with a minimal white head. Aroma of malts and citrus. A very strong citrus flavor with a strong after taste of citrus rinds. Overall it is a decent beer that could use some more hops.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bright amber colour. Thereís a lot of soft English bitterness (good) and herbal notes (also good) but way too much diacetyl (very bad) and on the whole it ruins the beer.

Clear copper with small but tight tan head. Buttery aroma detracts. Some apple sauce in there too. There is a good beer under all the butter, I detect herbal bitterness and lots of fruit.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours pale amber with little head and no lacing.
The aroma is mild with some bready malts and a hint of earthy hops. There is some caramel sweetness, but only faintly.
Slightly toasted malts and earthy hops dominate, though they’re certainly not packing a lot of punch. Hop bitterness is present but faint Ė pretty thin bodied overall.
Not terrible, but really nothing to stand out, especially as an IPA. It’s pretty fair as a standard pale ale.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark amber orange with signs of white head. The nose is very much a citrus rind character. Flavor tastes like the rind as well, and there is a toasted malt note. Medium esy to drink body with plenty of carbonation. Not bad.

If you donít expect an IPA, this beer is quite nice. Itís more of an amber or standard APA. But, overall itís a tasty and refreshing beer.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
First of all, this doesnít even taste like an IPA. Itís a good beer, but itís not a good IPA by any means.
