2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Grain & Gristle, pours a clear golden / copper with a small ring of white head. Aroma and flavour of woody notes and slightly bitter hops – not typical West coast at all. More woody-dominated than a standard IPA, without much of the classic piney, resinous quality. OK, but quite weak and low drinkability due to the woody quality.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bomber purchased at Letspour.com. The pour is a light haze golden copper with a two inch light tan head. The aroma is fresh resin pine, along with sweet caramel malt. The taste is the pine resin, softly bitter hops, on top of a thinner tasting cracker and lightly sweet cereal grain malt. The palate is light to medium bodied, with lower soft carbonation, and the resin dry pine finish. The pine really lingers. Crisp, easy drinking.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bomber pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that retains well and leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and pine with some earthy notes and caramel. Taste is a bold grapefruit and piney hop bitterness with a caramel malty sweetness. A very bold and flavorful IPA that is quite tasty and highly recommended.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, shared with mmmIPA. Hazy orange amber, persistent off-white head. Nice hoppy aroma, fresh pine and nectarine. Beautifully balance malts (more biscuit than caramel) play off delicious aromatic hops, tropical fruit and pine. Quite a juicy feel to this IPA. Bitterness is balanced, but extreme. Very very nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells hoppy yet slightly sweet. Maybe a bit caramely. The color is amber and a bit hazy with a small off white color head. A nice refreshing light bodied brew. You can taste the caramel malts a bit but the bitterness complements the sweet. It is very hop flavored but not to over bitter. The aftertaste is a bit sweet and bitter muvh like the first taste. Not a bad brew worth a buy.
