1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Clear, slightly hazy orange coloured body with a bit of a bronze glow and a thin, half a centimetre tall white head. Aroma of grass, medicine and a hint of stale malt - no hops at all, and a very mild scent for sure. Light-bodied; Grassy and herbal flavours up front with a strong dose of perfumey hops and a little stale malt and alcohol flavours noticeable. Aftertaste shows only stale malt, odd funky notes and no complexity and more importantly - no hops. Overall, a pretty bad offering and nowhere close to an IPA, APA or anything with hops in it. Definitely pass up on this, even if it isnít horribly expensive - itís not worth a single US$. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon on 12-April-2013 for US$3.98 sampled at home in Washington on 20-June-2013.

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 McCashinís stand this was easily the worst. Just sessionable without having much going on

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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 isnít bad. As an IPA, meh.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle from Vino.
Appearance - cloudy orange with a slim head which disappears fairly quickly.
Nose - honey and cereal, just a touch of citrus.
Taste - more of the same but not quite as refreshing as the nose suggests. Some soapiness on top of the honey and malt.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a similar texture and a clean finish.
Overall - a solid and very sessionable IPA.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Vino Wines. Hazy golden body with a thin white head that slowly fades. Light carbonation. Few lacing marks. Aroma of grass and grain. Flavour is light, lemony and grassy - itís more like a slightly hoppy Lager than an IPA. Thin body with a watery texture. Soft carbonation. Bland and boring, but not quite as bad as the previous reviews make out.
