2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml stubbie. BB27/09/14. Poured a semi-clear coppery brown with a one-finger beige coloured head that diminished quickly and laced OK. Aroma strongly of sweet hops and grapefruit plus a trace of caramel malts as the beer warmed. Aroma not carried through onto the taste which was initially soft caramel followed by strong acidic hops bitterness. Light body. Long quite acidic bitter finish.

Pours a dark golden amber with a finger of creamy off whit head. Nose is slightly sweet, with orange and floral hops up front. Taste is very refreshing. I get some sweetness on the mid palate and some peach. The finish is bitter grapefruit and pine that lingers for a while. A really good beer. Certainly the best in their regular line up.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nut brown - unusual colour for an ipa. Aromas of nuts and a hint of grapefruit. Malt and caramel lead into pine needles and a medium but long bitterness. The malt is well integrated throughout the palate.

Tap @ CBC 2013. I was told this particular batch is a cascade & galaxy recipe. The pour’s medium amber with a small head. The nose is honeyed apple. A bit of earthy cinnamon. Mild lemon citrus. The taste is more honeyed apple. A bit of grain. Lemon meat. Medium body, fine carbonation. Overall, OK.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not as hoppy as American versions of the style. Would be more a regular Pale Ale in my book but it’s a nicely balanced and tasty brew regardless.
