Marvelous hoppy aroma, citric lemon fresh! Very clean, medium bodied IPA .Nice bitterness that stays on you lips. Give long lasting impression. Nice clean styled example.

Amber colour, with a nice white head and some excellent lacing. Big foresty (not really pine) hop aroma. Nicely bitter, my initial assessment was that it lacked enough malt to back it up, but subsequent samples later at the Mondiale change my assessment which earned it another point for the flavour. Finish is a touch on the thin side but not so much as to be overly distracting. Very nice beer. Mondiale 3T (Radek/Tiggmtl).

Appropriate copper color, great head retention, pleasant citrusy aroma, good mouth feel. This IPA disppoints, however, due to its strong, lingering malt aftertaste.

Crystal clear golden ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The nose is of grapefruit, apricot and toffee. The well-balanced flavor is moderately bitter and decently malty. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, bitter, grassy finish.

(Besty by Aug/2004)Wow, the Columbus hops drown out the ringwood yeast! Very hoppy and bitter. Nice sticky malt character. Good IPA

Sample at the brewery. Pours clear amber with a small, white head. Aroma is a bit malty with lots of hops, reminiscent of marijuana. Starts surprisingly malty and then has a nice hop jolt in the finish. Average mouthfeel. Nice IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
sample at the brewery...pour is clear blonde with a small off white head. Piney aroma, lots of hops. Many different varieties of hops used in brewing this, kinda funky in the middle. Decent finish, nicely bitter. Not bad, I’d like a larger sample.

Nice looking glorious gold clear with no head. Faint floral hop aroma. Medium average smoothness body. Medium strong long lasting bitter herbal aromatic hop flavours with light hints of fruitiness all becoming a little staler in the aftertaste. I expected a little more from this brewer and thsi beer
