3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy dark amber. Thin head. Aroma is a little bit of indistinct fruity hop. Taste is a balance between slightly orangey hop, leafy hops, and a rich maltiness that is fairly pronounced in its toastiness.

a hazed golden amber IPA with a thin big bubbled off white head. In aroma, smooth fruity caramel malt with faint British hops, not bad. In mouth, a nice biscuitty malt with nice floral hops, a bit astringent, but nice. Cask at Ontario Cask IPA Challenge, April 21, 2012.

Cask Days 2012. Latest Kensington offering of higher IBU pale ale product. Bubbly head on orange body. Some orange citrus taste, not bad a beer, maybe better on tap. Medium mouthfeel, a bit of astringency. Decent drinkability for hopheads.

Tap at Toronto Underground Market. Deep amber pour. The nose is fruity with heavy notes of grapefruit and light resin. Soft kiss of caramel on the palate but it's nicely dry actually. Softly hoppy but has a nice mixture of grapefruit and some light estery fruit as well. Clean but assertive bitterness. Nice stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught pint at Burger Bar. Clear amber with a smallish fizzy/foamy off-white head. Leafy/resin aroma, tons of cereal grain, some alcohol. Taste follows, a bit of acidic English barley wine character, strong, malty and a touch boozy. Solid body and carbonation, longish dry resin bitter finish, a little warming - well done, Brock - much better than the early skeleton versions. I will be buying this.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Bar Hop. Pours a deep orange-copper with an average size long-lasting fluffy off-white head. Some lacing on the glass. Mild aroma of malt, grain, light resiny hops and some fruit. Flavour’s hoppier then the aroma suggests, slightly sweet too, with caramel malt and resiny hops and with a decent bitter, dry finish. Medium bodied. Quite enjoyable.

[4395-20120421] Cask. Fresh doughy pasta bread aroma has a hint of citrus orange. Slightly hazy, orange light brown body with a quick bubbly off-white head. Grainy light orange hops flavour has a bitter base with a mellow finish. Medium body. Easy to drink, not particularly memorable. (6/3/6/3/14) 3.2

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can: Poured a clear copper color ale with a rather large foamy head with average retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of dry caramel malt with light bitter hoppy notes. Taste is also dominated by some dry caramel malt with some hoppy bitter notes that are not as powerful as I would have expected. Body is light with good carbonation. Too much dry caramel malts for its own good with hops that fell way short considering the style.
