So hoppy that I actually enjoyed it. I hate IPAs, and I tend to dislike EPAs, but this was extraordinary. The taste and smell were very fascinating. The aftertaste makes the beer a must have! Try it out.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Undated 12 oz bottle.
Pours hazy golden with some unattractive particles floating about. It is topped by a tall and thick white head that has good retention.
The flavor is a bit better than the aroma, with adequate hops for style.
Excellent lively but smooth feel with a near medium body and medium-high but soft carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Light fruity nose, with some small citrus. Dull, hazy darkish apple juice color, filmy head. Gentle ripe pear, tiny citrus note, a bit of yeast bite, small sweet finish. Thin, watery. Okay. Mild stuff (perhaps this one is past its prime or wasn’t shipped in good conditions).

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy and kind of dark pale ale. Not my favourite shade. Aroma is fresh and grassy, malt sweetness shines through. Taste is malty, there are some hops too, mainly bittering ones. Could be a nice beer to have by the pint.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Very light bodied pale ale. Not very hoppy at all. Was expecting a bit more out of it. Not bad but not great either.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 ML bottle
Hazy orange amber color. Half finger of bright white head. Sticky lacing on the sides of the glass. Decent to good head retention.
Nose is mostly biscuit malt and a bit of spicy hops. Somebody else said have to work to get the hops in this. Very true.
Taste is sweet biscuit and caramel. Get touches of resin, spice and grapefruit. Very soft though. Very malt driven. More interesting in the back as hops pick up more. Not bitterness wise but more citrus flavors. Orange and grapefruit.
Medium bodied, lots of resin, good carbonation. Well made beer. Think fuller bodied golden ale.
