2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not much of a nose, not much of a backbone of the hops and a slight bitter finish. Color was golden, clear and minimally carbonated. The body felt thin and light nearing flat.

Bottle. Pours clear light amber with a small white head that dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is spruce, pine, grain. Flavor its the same, kind of lagery actually, medium sweet with very light bitterness. As a hot summer day session beer this isn’t bad. As an IPA, meh.

Amber in colour with nice thick creamy white head. Big hop floral nose. Big hop bitterness. Flavour is very similar Mac’s Sassy Red. Is more of an amber ale than IPA, but still very refreshing.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Almost zero head with very little carbonation. Not much on the nose, just a trace of slightly fruity hops. Similar taste. A minuscule amount of caramel sweetness to start and then awfully bitter skunky hops which overpower everything else and linger long after the mouthful has been swallowed. However, despite this there is pretty much no body or texture. It goes down like water with no finishing mouthfeel. Very disappointing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Beervana 2011. Average. Of the four on show at the McCashin’s stand this was easily the worst. Just sessionable without having much going on
