3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12floz bottle into a tulip. Pours a lovely golden yellow with a finger of bubbly white head. Nose is really fruity and delicious. I get a really strong mandarin citrus component, as well as a bit of a floral note, some peach and just a hint of sweetness. On the palate you get a big hit of that pine and grapefruit from the Chinook, a bit of bread, some sweet caramel, just a touch of the mandarin from the nose, and a nice bitter finish that lingers. Body is medium and mouthfeel is pretty rich. Leaves some decent lacing. Great balance, but I would have liked more of the aroma to carry through to the flavour.

Not bad at all. Pours well with a deep amber colour.nicely carbonated with a pale frothy head. Worth a try.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle. Pours a clear orange amber colour with a frothy off-white head and aroma of crystal malt, caramel, lemony citrus. Taste is malt caramel with sweet tropical fruit mango, hoppy grapefruit citrus & woody pine bitterness. Slightly oily mouth feel, medium bodied soft carbonation, residual sweetness through to a dry bitter finish. Quite OK IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Une blonde claire, coiffée d’une mousse dense et qui persiste un temps, en dessinant une dentelle baveuse. Des arômes typiques du style, c’est-à-dire de conifères et/ou d’agrumes et ce, assez faiblement. Son goût est plus prononcé, nous laissant une amertume sèche en bouche. Vite oubliée.(673-060613)

Appearance: Orange/gold with a small cream colored head.
Flavor: Butterscotch and bread with medium hop bitterness.
Palate: Medium to full bodied, medium carbonation.
Overall: A pleasant drinking IPA, but a tad tame, as it were.

Golden in color from the tap with light floral, citrus aromas. Taste is nicely balanced with light malt flavors and hops throughout the whole drink. My favorite at Disneyland!!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours with a good head and great effervescence.
Nice bitterness, but could do with a tad more malt.
Well priced though, and sessionable.

Bottle in a glass. Copper pour with a foamy offwhite head. Aroma of grapefruit and pine. Not overly bitter, quite malt forward. Not very "west coast" but certainly a fine beer.
