Pours a clear amber colour with some small white head (doesn’t last too long) with some nice lacing. Aromas of pine, citrus, some sweet malty notes, mellow but quite appealing. Flavours of sweet grapefruit and light piney notes, bitterness is mild, good malt profile. Very session-able IPA!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear orangish copper with a small off white ring that leaves some lacing. Aroma of citrus, pine & some sweet pale malts. Taste is citrus, grass and a hint of sweetness. Nice smooth ipa that I’d use to get people into the style.

Large bottle. Reddish amber color, with an off white head. Noticeably bitter, but not a hop bomb; instead a nice balance of hops and malts, with no obvious caramel or other cheap tricks detected. There probably is caramel in this brew, but at least it’s well hidden. Nice.

Beer pours a dark gold colour, semi-translucent, with a generous lasting light tan head. Aroma is caramel malt, and citrusy hops. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavour is grapefruity hops, with some sweet fruit and malt hints. If this beer was cheaper ($5.60 for a 650ml bottle), drinking it could become a habit.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy blonde color ale with a relatively large foamy head with average retention and some alight lacing. Aroma of bitter hops with light citrus notes is not as powerful as I would have expected. Taste is a solid mix between some citrus notes with caramel malt and some floral hops with a bitter finish. Body is light with good carbonation. Not bad but nothing really exciting here.
