4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear and golden straw yellow from the bottle with 1 finger white head that quickly fades. Hoppy aroma of citrus, peach and resin, with nice malty sweetness to round it out. Medium bodied with slightly more than average carbonation, the taste is sweet malt at first followed by a resinous/fruity hop bitter sweetness. Finish is long, crisp and slightly astringent. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 mL bottle from LCBO in the BC craft beer mixer, served cold in a tulip glass. Clear deep golden with a decent white head. Big, dank, pine, resin, peppery, citrus, apricots, tropical fruits, lovely hop aromas sufficient malt support, a great start! Medium body, full, fine effervescence. Fruity and juicy, then pine resin, then dank, then pepper, nice caramel backbone, good stuff; dry with good bitterness and a long, juicy, pine, fruity finish. Great success.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from a "BC pack" at LCBO. Golden pour, fast two finger white head. Nice hoppy citrus, resin and a little bit floral and cereal on the aroma. Medium, sticky body. Pretty lively. Bitter throughout with a nice balanced acidity. Medium bitter finish. Lacks complexity. I could use a bit more malty texture, but a solid hoppy IPA nonetheless.

Bottle - 355ml. Golden body with average carbonation and a thin, fading white frothy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with melon and grapefruit hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries malty, citrusy, and piney notes. Ends with a long, robust bitter finish. Enjoyable IPA.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 mL Bottle. Yellow-gold body with a foamy white head that settles to a clingy film leaving foamy ribs on the glass as it is sipped. Aroma of sweet light malts, citrus and floral notes, and resiny hops. Flavor of sweet light malts, grapefruit rind, aftertaste of pink grapefruit rind and a matching finish with sharp but refreshing resiny hops. Another grapefruity IPA that has won my heart.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hard pour out of colourful bottle -- can’t tell if this cycling image is cool or cheese -- is deep orange with a classic ipa bumpy cap. Aroma is floral, citrus, & hoppy. Definite west coast ipa profile. Tasty & yet a little one dimensional. Wish I could get a six pack of this (this came in a 6 pack BC sampler to ease us centre of the world types in) even though it doesn’t pack the hop bomb wallop some of their rivals brew.
