4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a perfectly clear gold, with a moderately thick head with great retention and lovely lace. Spicy hop aroma, with light malt sweetness. Nice hop bite and biscuity, lightly toasted malt flavour. Thick, creamy body - unusual for an IPA but tasty all the same. This is a solid, sessionable ale. Very nice!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Jaune/cuivre avec un petit col blanc. L’arôme des agrumes et un peu de fruits tropicaux. Le goût est d’agrumes avec un peu du malt. Corps moyen. Un bon IPA du région.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden coliur with a small moderately dense head. Strong resinous aroma, slight sweetness on the smell. Not as biting as I would have hoped, but the mouthfeel is quite nice. Mildly bitter, slightly grassy, short aftertaste. Sparkling and well balanced with a decent body to it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Typical/Archetype NW IPA. Solid hop profile. High on the bitterness spectrum. Likely served a little too cold. Rounded out nicely after warming up.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong citrus grapefruit up front, followed by sweet/caramel malts. There is a light lingering pine taste and a strong but not overpowering bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells of tropical fruit with a hint of malt. Pours amber colour, large carbonation bubble visible with a light head with mostly fine bubbles.
Tastes slightly sweet with caramel, pineapple, citrus like, lightly floral.
Medium body, large carbonation, astringent and bitter finish.
A decent beer, good flavour, but I would like to see more malty flavours to round out the bitterness a bit more.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dull amber, thin head aroma is caramel and fruity, slightly citrusy hop. Has some nice sweet lychee character, soft caramels, and maybe a little overripe peach. Ok.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rating #1019 - March 9, 2014 - Bought in celebration of new job. #hint. Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hoppy overtones, grapefruit, citrusy, toasted malt. Taste is more of the same, dry hops and cookie dough malts dominating the flavour, with a hint of sweetness. Finish is dry, but balanced and satisfying. Delicious. Up there with central city, among the best Canadian IPAs

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml brown bottle. Pours golden, fairly clear. Small white cap with lots of leftover foam in the glass. Hoppy nose with big citrus and a bit of fruit. Taste has grapefruit and orange notes, clean and dry malt base. Aftertaste is grapefruity, medium bitterness. Medium bodied, average carbonation. A solid IPA and a good value for the $.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2014 Drank out of the bottle. Aroma was delightfully hoppy and clear notes of citrus. Taste was hoppy with notes of pineapple, orange, tangerine, grapefruit, misc citrus, pine, etc. A delicious beer that is both crisp and refreshing. A new favourite of mine!
