October 6, 2012 ; 6% abv, 750 mL bottle, BBD Oct 29/12; rock glass
Citrus hops dominate. Pours a caramel colour with a nice tan head. Good looking beer. Balanced caramel malts with grapefruit citrus hops. Resin finish is lingering. A little thin in the body but overall, clean character. Highly drinkable, which isn’t a great thing for an IPA (I think). Resin bitterness is a bit too powerful.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a completely filtered copper colour with a thin white head that leaves a wash of lacing. Moderate carbonation is visible.
Aromas of pine, citrus hops, and sweet caramel malts. Some bready yeast too.
Medium, slightly creamy mouth feel. The tastes are a nice blend of the hops and malts, and it also has both sweet and earthy components. I’m fairly impressed by the balance in this one.
This won’t be the best IPA I drink in 2015, but with its impressive balance, one could do far worse. Very drinkable.

Aroma is citrus, clove, lemongrass and slight earthiness. Taste is a very pale sweet malt body with a dominant hop body that is similar to aroma with light tartiness on finish. Appearance is a clear copper with a fluffy pearl head that retains well.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear amber with a frothy white head. Aroma includes notes of malt, grapefruit and mango. Tasting notes include caramel and buttery malts, and citrus and pine hops, and finishes with a crisp bitter bite. Not bad! I think they found a great mix of malt and hops in this one!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml brown bottle. Deep golden, clear. Low sitting white cap with a creamy bead. Nose has some grapefruit, orange and is a bit woody and piney. Taste has light caramel base malt, pine and woody notes than blend into a bright grapefruity and fruity finish. Aftertaste has grapefruit and leafy hop. Bitterness is light. Actually a pretty good IPA from a brewery that usually doesn’t impress me too much.

I thought this was nothing special. Aromas of toast and dark malts. More bitter toasty malts in the flavor... Maybe some hop finish... Otherwise average.
