3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ CBC2013. Pours a dark copper colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of grassy hops, gooseberries and floral notes. Flavour of grainy malts, gooseberries, citrus and floral notes. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and high carbonation. Doesn’t feel fresh.

Very malty, with a medium bitterness which seems to settle into the backseat after a while and let the malt sweetness do the talking. Good easy drinking.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dry hopped finish which leaves a bitterness in the palate. More malt driven than hop driven though which is why my overall score was a bit on the low side.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy medium amber, with a small off-white head, which does not last all that well but does leave reasonable lacing. There really isn’t a whole lot going on in the aroma, just some faint floral hops and toffee malt. Floral and grassy hops up front lead into a smooth body of toffee malt and candied fruit, which continues into the finish. This really doesn’t have enough hops to be considered an IPA; I would probably call it a sweet ESB if anything. For an IPA it is quite disappointing.

Good nose. Maybe the maltiest IPA I've had. Starts off sweet and stays with you. Nice malty twist on an IPA

This is my current fav swilling beer, I think I’m at about 10 cartons over the last 4 months. Best oz session beer? Could be! Pours deep amber red with sml-med head. Smells hoppy, pine, fruit & malt. Tastes like a great mix of hops, a little fruity, quite malty and finishes bitterly. Those mountain goat guys do it good. Props.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2013 Deep clear reddish brown colour with medium white head. Hop aroma of citrus, pine and passionfruit is masked somewhat by the malt character of dark caramel. Medium oily body. Taste is also a slightly burn caramel sweet maltiness, which. Too much malt character disallows the hops to shine in this IPA. Still a decent drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a adark bronze color with a good head that fades slowly to nice lacing. Aroma of citrus, roasted malt and carmel. Taste is a bit of grapefruit with a caramel and some roasted malt. Nice bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body, crisp and smooth, nicely balanced. An enjoyable beer. Nice take on the style, a bit more malt than expected but still worth checking out.
