COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A generously hopped IPA, balanced by a diabolical blend of rich specialty malts and pure mountain water. A wicked ale that leaves you lusting for more!

650 mL bottle. Pours very nicely - an attractive copper-brown with a nice beige head. The nose suggests dryhopping - leans toward the resiny end of the spectrum. The flavour is disappointingly small - not bad, just a little thin on hop flavour and bitterness. I’d buy more if it came in smaller bottles or cans. Bombers are so awkward.

Lacing is alright, big head in the beginning. Dark amber colour. Smells hoppy with some citrus and quite a lot of malt musk. Not a huge palate, but alright. Final aftertaste leaves a little bit of unpleasant astringency, but that’s really the only major flaw. Bottle.

A pleasant surprise. Not dazzling, but just an excellent IPA with the PERFECT finish. Some finishes can be too bitter, some can be too weak, but this one was nice and full, which is what makes a good beer in this style for me. The non-finish beer was pretty average, caramel and citrus. Sorry if I’m going backwards here haha.

650ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that settles quite quickly leaving a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is pleasantly adorned with hops with some light caramel notes. Taste is dominated by the hops with some light caramel malt sweetness. Could be better balanced. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A decent IPA, but could have been much better.

The beer pours a reddish amber. The nose is sweet floral, grapefruit, and clover honey. The pallet starts with floral grapefruit hops and finishes with clover honey. Overall a very sessional smooth IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is sweet with toffee and caramel. Body is a little thin and initially sweet. A bit of bitterness comes through mid palate and finishes with sweet caramel malts. Not bad. Not great.

650mL room temperature bottle into a tulip This is my kind of aroma, flowery, spicy, caramel, and mango. It pours a beautiful clear amber colour with a nice sized tan head. After letting it sit for a few minutes, the head shrinks to 1/2 a centimeter and remains for a long time. Starts sweet but ends bitter. Some of the caramel and floweriness comes through in the taste. Light and thin body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Compared with the beers I can get in my local area, this is a fine IPA, perhaps a session beer, but in no way is it outstanding.

Pours a clear reddish amber with lingering film of white head. Tropical hop aroma - big time passion fruit, backed up with peach. Taste is quite impressively bitter and aromatic to open, moving to a dry bittersweet finish. Pleasant drink with very nice fruitiness - could benefit from a bit more malt presence.

piscator34 (1948) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 9, 2012
Bottled sample. Dark orange in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of caramel, pine sap, and candied orange peel. Caramel and pale malts upfront on the palate, along with notes of black pepper, lemon, and wood. Moderately bitter finish. Too malt heavy for me, but not bad overall.

Interesting IPA. Pours a maple syrup colour with creamy white head. Smells like pine, grapefruit, a touch of juicy tropical fruit, and some interesting smoky/woody/ savory aromas. Nice smooth palate. Malty start, not too sweet, milder bitter finish...all around interesting ipa that I enjoyed.
