3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
650 ml bomber bottle from Liquor Depot during an insanely great clearance sale. (I got six bottles for one dollar each, deposit extra; the beer gods surely smiled on me that day...greatest buck-a-beer deal EEEVER!) Served in another equally cool thrift store treasure, a slightly inward-curved 500 ml Stiegl "tower" glass. Very cool. Pours a bright copper hue with a fluffy, light mocha cap that leaves several lace rings. Big floral and fruit hop aromas, with lemon predominant, but not as fresh as I’d hoped. On the tongue, there’s a happily fresher flavor complex of citrus and pine; despite its name and the satyr depicted on the label, this isn’t a hop-bomb; the hips are well-controlled. Mouthfeel is pleasant, with a clean finish and a lightly bitter bite. An altogether fresh-tasting IPA that’ll tempt you to have another of their 6% ABV bombers.

From the bottle, nice caramel malts and great hoppy finish. Rich golden colour with a good hoppy aroma

Tap at the last drop, Revelstoke. Dark Amber, creamy offwhite head. Fairly resinny hops, pine, earthy, herbal. Medium light body, flat slighly oily mouthfeel. Pine and grape finish. Fairly basic high-IBU IPA. Just not a big fan of those anymore.

650ml bottle. Mildly hopped, decently balanced IPA. Florals, grass, grapefruit, cereals. Decent bitterness. Just a bit plain.

Bottled. Nice big orange citrus hop aroma, fine bitter palate, with grapefruit notes too. Lingering finish. Tasty without the huge body I expected.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle. Pours light copper with finger of off white head. Aromas of citrus orange grapefruit. Taste same as nose with hints of toffee. It has a great flavor profile, but I would say this is a pale ale not IPA. It’s missing the bitterness... Still good tho.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear dark amber pour with a small off white head which leaves some sheeting. Nose is lots of pine and citrus hops with a small toffee background. Very light caramel start followed by an impressive bitter wallop of hops. Long dry finish after a slightly watery mouth and average carbonation. Nasty in a good hoppy way.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A hazed murky amber ipa with a thin off white head. In aroma, maderized biscuit malt with smooth floral hops, resinous character, doughy notes, nice. In mouth, a crisp biscuit malt with grassy floral hops, grapefruit pulp, à bit tired but still solid. Bottle from LCBO, about 3 years old.
