3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, from the 10th anniversary ampler pack: pours lightly hazed orangey-amber ale in the glass with a rich creamy 2 finger cap. Moderatey carbonated. Aroma is very interesting with the typical PacNW Cascade grapefruit rush but a demure sweetness and some exotic floral-fruit tones. Medium bodied hoppy character, Flavour has a big malt presence in the start but is quickly balanced with PacNW hopping, mid palate there is a bit of complexity then a long bittering citrus finish. I had previously tasted this on cask but this bottled version is quite rounded and tamed. A nice drinkable Pacific NW styled IPA and a great addition to Mill Street’s line up.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Volo IPA Challenge. Pours a clear, deep orange-amber with a small long-lasting bubbly white head. Semi-mild aroma of green hops and pale malt -- quite simple but decent. Flavour’s also mild, with resiny and citrusy hops and a short, decent bitter finish. Average bodied. It’s good, it suffers a little next to some of the beers at the challenge but I’d happily have it again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. somewhat cloudy brown or orange colour with a frothy head. Very hoppy aroma with hints of citrus and fruit juice that is balanced with caramel. Hoppy brew with loads of pinecone bitterness, fruity hops and a again that caramel backbone. Delicious.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the Ottawa brewpub. Medium hops presence with surprisingly heavy malt and cereal flavor. More malty than I’d expect in a IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
October 28, 2012 - 8th Annual Volo Cask Days. Looks great, slightly hazy coppery gold with an average frothy off-white head. initially smells pretty good - estery tropical fruit with light resin and citrus, but it has an emerging unpleasantness - went from 8- down to barely a 7. Taste is pretty good though, no let-down - a bit generic but lots of juicy tangerine, not a lot of alcohol. Light body, reasonably long bitter juicy/floral finish - one of the best by MS in a long time; not great, but good.

The beer pours a dark golden-rted colour with a rocky whitish-tan head. The aropma was citrus, pine, and some grainy malt. Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied with medium carbonation. Flavour is citrusy hops, dish soap, and some caramelm sweetness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark yellow, foamy white head. Nice aroma of some earthy and floral hops. Taste - pretty nice! Not Tankhouse-esque like the brewpub IPA - this one is less malty (but still on the malty side for IPA’s - nice full foamy body), with much more floral hops. Extremely drinkable! Some lingering hops in finish
