3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2015/07/22 - Pours a hazy dark copper colour with a thick, rocky, off white head that slowly reduces and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is earthy hops, citrus, nuts, caramel and a hint of roast. Taste is cereal, earthy hops, citrus, mild resin, caramel and roast. Mouthfeel is medium with average carbonation and a juicy, moderately bitter finish. This was better than I had expected. Nothing extraordinary, but still very drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from my local LCBO. A warm red-brown that’s not quite clear. Reasonable amount of dense off-white head. Nose with a solid amount of malt, mildly sweet with just some perfume and flower hops. Tastes like a solid brew. Dense malt favour of cereal, with lower, non dominating, hops flavour of flowers, and bitters. Very drinkable. Not really the hop-bombs of the current view of IPA but a nice beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A murky orangey brown with decent amount of head.
The aromas and tastes are a nice blend of hops and malts, earthiness, and leather.
I’ve certainly had superior IPAs, but this is by no means a bad beer, and is quite drinkable.

I am an IPA fan , have to try them all when I see a new one.
Love this one smooth, hoppy , but not too. Malty, nutty, just nice beer. In a great looking can. No need to over complicate it this one has a place a my house anyday.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big can in a stem glass. Pours dark amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of light floral hops, a lot of caramel and toffee and toast from the malts, and dough/bread. Flavor the same. Average texture. I hope this can was old, because if not, this is a terrible IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
can from the LCBO. Clear deep copper pour with a large beige head that fades slowly. Nose has lots of caramel, roasted nuts and pine resin. Light sweet candied sugar front with a medium bitter pine middle and some light fruit. Medium slick mouth with average carbonation. Nice enough but the flavours aren’t very well integrated.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours amber with thin head. Aroma of malts and burnt sugar, a little hops: not really IPA-like. Tastes of malts, burnt sugar and a bit of booze: tastes nothing like an IPA, more like a strong English or Belgian ale. Not great.
