3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer was enjoyed amongst many others during the 2nd bi- annual Junction Brewery & Bar Stumble. As for the brew, itís really not much of anything, a VERY middle of the road pale ale that is VERY malt forward & VERY hops on mute. And thatís just the thing with these guys. Try their beers over & over again & its really is a malt shop. I wonít let it bias my ratings & I respect the consistency of their brewing style (all malts, all the time) but ... Iím curious to see if they ever round that corner of heavy muddy malts meets low-fi hops.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear golden pour with a lively carbonation. Large frothy white head. Metallic malt aroma. Crisp flavour with a citrus malt lager beer feel. Bitter finish if not a little odd.

[5754-20130830] Cask. Honey floral pear fruit aroma. Slightly hazy, golden orange body with no lasting head. Bitter floral grains flavour has a bit of an underlying straw. Medium body. Strange bitter blandness but not much support. (7/3/6/2/13) 3.1

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Cíest What. Pale golden yellow pour with a thin white head. Nose is quite fruity and a little bit juicy. Some soft grapey sweetness along with a touch of melon. Moderate bitterness and some lingering crackery malt character. Pretty decent brew actually. Nice and dry.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2014-08-30. Lightly hazy dark yellow body with a small quick white head. Aroma is muted, light citrusy lime and mineral quality. 6+ Flavour is mild, modest hops are sort of fruity, lightly bitter, subtle fruity hops have a mineral quality to it, that grows when i come back to it whisper of lime and citrus. Smooth average to thin bodied palate, low to no carbonation. Subtle, pleasant but quite mild for IPA! Just okay. I suspect it is better on tap. On cask at Volo, Toronto

500 ml bottle from brewery. Pours a cloudy dull golden colour with modest-sized white head. Aroma is modest citric and piney hops, lightly sweet fruit and grains. Flavour has some gently sweet tropical fruit, bit of graininess and an understated citrus/pine hop bite. Modest bitterness in finish. Solid.
