3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: clear pale to medium amber with one fat finger of fluffy white head, good retention and moderate lacing. (3/5) Aroma: resiny pine, pithy grapefruit, pale malt, tropical fruit. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering bitter finish. (3/5)
Much better than their Crosswind Pale Ale. Actually a halfway decent example of an American IPA, with piney and citrusy hops leading the way over just enough pale malt to balance. Ends with a lingering resiny bitter finish. A little rough around the edges, perhaps, but a solid performer. (14/20)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2016 Amertume soutenue sur du caramel, du sucre d?orge, et des fruits mûrs. Même si je ne rachèterais pas nécessairement ce produit, c?est correct.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. The aroma is flowery, with a bitter note, like broccoli. The taste is watery, with quite a bit of smoke for an IPA. Short finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.473 can. Clear, coppery color and a medium, off-white head. Aroma of hops, exotic fruits, some hay, caramel, flowers, pines - it’s crisp and fresh. Taste is moderately bitter with a malty touch to it, floral and citric, also sweet to an extent. A medium body, an oily texture, and an average carbonation. Finish is medium long and relatively sweet, sort of like ice tea. Overall not a bad beer, quite drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
473 ml can from a sampler four-pack from Sobeys, in a pilsner flute. Pours a bright, moderate amber hue with light carbonation and a puffy, milky head that retains well and leaves plenty of lacy lace. Aroma is a nice burst of citrus and piney hops, somewhere between fresh and dusty, with a small amount of floral that sits with the no-nonsense malt. Flavor is highly citrus, all grapefruit and lemon, with a soft astringency, and the sip ends like a lightly-sweetened iced tea, of all things. Thin-bodied, and the initial astringency keeps your mouth watering a few moments. Good, but it could be great with its rougher edges knocked off and the overall presentation freshened.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A minimalist white head on a clear golden body. Nose is caramel and tropical fruit. This is a nicely balanced, slightly understated IPA. Citrus and resiny hops, a splash of tropical fruit, dark caramel and sweet malt make up a clean, accessible taste profile. A medium/low carbonation level adds to the smoothness and creamy texture. Very drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
pours unclear bright golden orange with a small white cap, some retention and lacing. toasted fruity maltiness, light specialty caramel, pine, spicy orange fruitiness - usual C’s, yet muted; pepper, absent and awkward estery-free yeast. moderate carbonation, light body - feels a tad watery; balanced spicy-citrusy-piney finish. old-school and cheaply crafted. another one of these jaded moments.
