3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from LCBO at Anton's. Hazy translucent orange copper pour - nice - with thick dense head. Aroma is juicy hops - like Tuatara Double Trouble or De Molen Amarillo - pineapple, citrus, mango. Taste follows - quite heavy malt base with lots of hops on top. Again, like Amarillo but less boozy and more bitter. Lingering bitter finish. Solidly good IPA. Tastes more like the modern European craft IPAs than most North American ones.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy orange with a thin fluffy white head, lacing sticks around the glass. Aroma has some pine and grapefruit with some peach in the background. Taste sweet honey like malt balanced with a firm bitterness lots of juicy citrus tangerine grapefruits. Finish is dry the bitterness doesn’t stick around in the aftertaste.

Slightly hazy amber golden colour, slight white head. Aroma of malts, raisins and tropical fruits. Sweet malty flavour, light bitter. Bitter finish, malts, hops and grass. Feels a bit old.

Can version, Piney hops, earthy malt, not much citrus/caramel, sticky bitter finish. OK drink but not my favorite IPA character.

Aroma slightly sweet almost of honey. Appearance I’d a clear brownish amber color. Dissipating head. Taste is hippy but sweet. Too sweet for an ipa for me but overall pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From 473 ml can in pint glass. Clear golden color witgca frothy white head. Grapefruit and citrus notes in the nose with some grainy malt touch. Very fruity. Taste is a good mixture of fruity grapefruit notes and a big amount of resinous bitterness that lingers for a long while. Good malty backbone in the middle. Medium carbonation. Good IPA with a lot of bitterness for hopheads!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
473ml can from the Great White North. Pours a hazy orange with a sudsy head. Nice citrus notes in the nose and some earthy hops also in there. Flavor is a nice balance of citrusy hops and some caramel malts floating around. A very solid IPA, and perhaps the best beer I’ve had from our neighbors up north. I’m impressed.
