3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice sudsy beer. Quite balanced with some bitter citrus and pinecone vs a smooth malt. Labeled as a ’strong beer’ but actually very approachable. I sensed a bit of dilution. A decent IPA.

Bottle at thirdeye11’s birthday party. Orange amber color with a white head. This is a very balanced IPA. I get a lot of biscuit malt, as well as some nice orange and pine notes from the hops. Not bad.

January 19, 2013 - bottle shared by BVery. Brownish orange pour with head that lasted. Nice balance of hops and malt in aroma and taste. Not expecting much from this one, but it was solid.

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!

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2015 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’s balanced well, has lots of flavor and easy to drink.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
