Slightly sweet smell...good but mild, appears light brown and slightly cloudy, taste is like it smells, retains a good amount of sweetness and not too bitter, good!

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz into a glass. Pours a amber brown, hobby and thick, with marble. Head is medium, white and clear, sticky lacing clinging all around. Aroma of orange chaffed malts, prominent. Roses, tea, vanilla wafers, crab apple, minimal hops. Taste of thick and chewy malts, sweet tangerine bite, def an English style IPA, orange cascades, small hop punch. Fun for a change of style, a bit sour on the aftertaste, then bitter, then an inviting sweetness. I went back. Not too bad.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I wish this was good but the yeast they use totally overwhelms the beer in a bad way. Funky super glue dominates the taste and aroma where the hops don’t hold up to the malt in either. Brandy like fruit flavors and super glue with a touch of citrus from the hops but no wow or balance.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a thick frothy ivory head. Sweet aroma of caramel, vanilla, and sugars. Hops don’t play well with the sweet malt nose. Not balanced at all. Very malty. Biscuit, caramel, and rough citrus rinds. Not for me.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It’s on the darker side of the IPA style with a deep orange amber colored body. It has good clarity and a creamy off white head sitting on top. This head is thick and hangs on to the glass leaving thick lace rings at each sip. Overall the nose is fairly light but offers a mild bready and lightly fruity base with a nice balance of citrus and herbal hops. Under that is just a slight hint of mineral. There is a solid bready maltiness with a light fruity sweetness upfront balanced by light hop bitterness. Citrus, herbal, and mild pine like hop notes slowly take over and finish off the flavor profile firmly on the herbal/piney bitter side. This bitterness ligers and sticks for some time on the tongue.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a golden-amber colour with nice white head. Aroma is floral, hops, spices, some malts. Taste is hops, malts. Decent beer.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a clear copper body body under a one finger fizzy off-white head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is minimally hoppy with some caramel malt and light brown sugar. The flavor is pretty poor in the context of the style. Minimally bitter with little hop flavor, more brown sugar and caramel sweetness than hops. Medium bodied with a bit of clingy stickiness and fizzy carbonation. Pretty poor example of what I’m looking for in an IPA.
