4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml bottle. Heavy in the glass which is always a sign of a good beer. Orangey amber colour with a low even layer of foam that sits nicely. The aroma is full of big citrus hop notes that fill the nose, also some passionfruit in there? In the mouth it is full and rich with just the slightest hint of bitterness. Big brash flavour with a mixture of maltiness and fruitiness, a good blend that sits in the mouth well.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours opaque amber with a small, sticky off white head. Citra and Simcoe hops are showcased nicely in this one. Passionfruit, mango, citrus all jumps out the glass at you. Very fruit forward and punchbowl like. All comes through in the taste. Vibrant fruit driven with a long, and nice grapefruit bitter finish. Very good beer

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2015 Tap (growler). Amber with a light beige head. Aroma of peaches, nectarines, kumquats, pine. Full, somewhat oily mouthfeel. Taste is initially sweet with stone fruit and caramel, then first citrus then pine bitterness kicks in. Quite aggressive resinous bitterness builds up over a glass and if there’s any finesse there it got elbowed out of the way. But this is pretty solid stuff. [3.4]
Can. A little less aggressive at the end and maybe slightly drier. More harmonious drinking but the hops don’t scissor through the sweetness so well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark amber with a large, fading head.
Nose shows resinous pine as well as some nectarine. Also lots of caramel and some cookie dough-like malt. Not particularly hoppy.
Very malty flavours, quite rich and heavy, lots of caramel. Hops are mainly noticeable in the aggressive, piny bitterness.
Could use more carbonation and a lighter body. Very syrupy.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Initially I thought that this was fairly hop light, but as it warmed a more than respectable IPA presented itself. Pine and Citrus with some tropical fruit with a fairly beefy body. Not going to bow you away, but a pretty decent everyman’s IPA.
