3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very cloudy gold with a thin cream (almost tan) head. Hints of citrus and some other fruits I canít put a finger on. Wonderfully bitter-sweet! It has a very nice balance. The body is somewhat light with a bit of a sticky texture that you would expect from an IPA, but the finish isnít as bitter as I have come to expect from many IPAs. The last bit suites me just fine. I am not a big fan of tasting a beer 5-10min after I have taken a sip. I want a beer that hangs around just long enough for me to want that next sip. This one fits the bill quite nicely with as a very pleasing overall IPA.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Slightly cloudy pal amber / yellow brew. Mid sized white head. Hoppy aroma - resin, floral. Taste is very hops forward, hops front to back really. Nice resin core with floral and a little lemon and citrus mixed in. Light bodied, clean and refreshing. Enough malt to keep it from being bitter, but definitely malt takes a backseat to the hops here. Solidly hoppy but still fairly delicate and light. An iron butterfly of a brew...

No head at all. Strawy yellow color, not a hop punch as I expected. Far from a good IPA

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml bottle. Paler appearance than I was expecting, a hazy yellow, good head. Looks like a slightly richer Hefe. Taste and aroma are middle of the road IPA, some floral hops with some biscuit malt. Flavourful, but not adventurous. Body is medium. Overall, this is a beer that is drinkable without being weak, but not a face punch of hops.

Iím a fan of this one. Pours hazy yellow with a decent head, a floral nose an a medium body. Tastes primarily of citrus and resin. Has a nice balance, not overwhelmingly hoppy.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bought a case of this a while back on sale and really liked it. Poured a hazy orange yellow with nice while frothy head. Aroma bit piney and resiny with hint of orange. Flavor has nice malt base with a piney resiny essence and a dull warming alcohol presence. Bit bitter on the backside but not overly much. Nice balance.
