3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can: Poured a deep amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some great lacing. Aroma of bitter and citrus hops notes is quite pleasant with some lightly sweet notes from the caramel malt. Taste is a good mix between some citrus hoppy notes with some notes of caramel malt which are sweeter then I would have liked. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Well brewed but a tad too much caramel malt and sweet for my own taste.

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.
