3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at TdD Tap Takeover, Wvrst, May 26. Pours a murky copper-peach with an average size diminishing frothy white head. Some lacing on the glass. Aroma is yeasty, fruity and hoppy along with some herbs. Fruity and yeasty flavour along with a good amount of hops and a big bitter finish. Medium bodied. Great stuff, I loved it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Wvrst. Hazy/muddy pour. Sticky white head. The aroma is quite fruity and a little bit herbal. Lightly citrusy and a touch spicy. Yeast is expressing with both fruity and spicy notes. Fairly hoppy but also fresh. A nice hoppy brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent. Clear orange pour with no head or lacing. Some citrus, malt and resin, but nothing in particular stands out here. Soft carbonation. Tap at volos.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Volo. Initially was getting significant yeast, and then the hops kicked in and it was OK for an IPA. Quaffable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a pale yellow with a bit of white head. Smell is citrus and grass hops. Palate is on the lighter side of medium bodied with average carbonation. Taste is a bitter kick, then a slight bitter and sweet aftertaste. It’s ok, but missing some spice and lacking in bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
November 19, 2011 -500ml bottle at Volo. Pours hazy amber with a huge and lasting plug of off-white creamy/foamy head (4+). Smells funky (bretty?) - like a "wild" extremely dry tripel - floral, some alcohol, sweet fruity malt, and a hint of grassy/zesty "C" hop pungency. Taste follows, maybe a bit of brandy, intensely floral; a real hybrid, but more Belgian than west coast IPA (7+). Average body, sharply carbonated, a longish slightly sour funky/floral dry bitter finish. Really really good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line :
This quenching India Pale Ale presents plenty of citrus fruit and peaches in a dry and stylish mouthfeel.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam mounts the misty blond-amber.
-Malts offer light honey and crisp cereals.
-Hop bitterness is resinous and peppery.
-Carbonation appears higher than usual because residual sugars are lower than average for the style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2012-06-02. Crisp amber body with a nice foamy beige head. 3+ Interesting flavour, modest hops and bitterness, odd flavour from the hops, sort of citrusy and sort of a floral character, very light resin and leafy touches, the melange of all of these makes for an interesting combination. Bitterness grows pleasantly throughout the glass. 7+ Smooth average plus bodied palate. Modest hop aroma, light leafy touches, floral whispers. 7+ Not entirely sure what to make of it, the hop profile is different from what I expected but I am glad we opted for a full bottle as it finished off our session at Wvrst rather nicely. Bottle at Wvrst, Toronto
