Golden brown pour. Thin white head goes away quite fast. Hop aroma, notes of cloves and lavender. Watery on the palate. Bitter hop flavor but not over the top.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours orange with a sticky head about 2 fingers. Watery texture, aroma is weak. Taste is resinous hops, citrus, pine. Palate is caramel and pineapple. A nice brew but not full by any means. Reminds me of wolf red brick IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
New beer from Victoria, BC. Pours cloudy amber. Nice frothy head. Smells of pine, lemon, some bread. Palate is fizzy, would pair well with food, palate cleansing. The carbonation is a bit strong, over powers the hop flavours. Finish is more bitter and lingering, taste for a while after. Just an OK IPA.

Lovely hop aromas that pours cloudy with a short fluffy head. A fizzy taste and very plain. Smooth mouth feel and a short finish with minimal bitterness. An ok IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bomber pours a golden orange color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and pine with some cereal grains. Taste is a piney and citrus hop bitterness balanced nicely with a grainy malt sweetness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A well crafted IPA that is worth a taste.

Bomber. Clear orange copper, frothy off-white head slowly settles and mostly fades. Fruity malty aroma, some citrus and pine. Fresh piney citrus hop taste, dry and floral, light caramel malts. Average carbonation, medium bodied, medium hopped. Lite, clean and easy to quaff, makes this tranquil IPA: LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Has a nice bright blue bottle cap. That’s worth something, isn’t it? Very reliable appearance otherwise with a brownish body lacking carbonation and decent head that sticks around. Good sweet hops on the nose, appetizing, simple. Nice IPA flavour with some citrus notes and a dry finish with some grain undertones. This is a solid, well-made IPA: not a standout, nor especially unique, but very good.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2013 Bottle - Tropical fruit, especially mango and grapefruit. Copper and clear with a white foamy head. Unfortunately the taste lets this beer down. Thin, bitter, resinous and just not that great. If they can match the aroma to the taste this would be a slam dunk.
Draft - Nose is still great, but on tap at the brewpub the body and flavors are much better. A bit of fresh pine and some of the tropical fruit comes through. Mandarin and orange peel in the bitter finish.
Increased the score based on the more recent draft.
