3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy amber color. Tropical aroma bursts into the nose. Pineapple. Really smooth. Apple. Medium carbonation. Bread? A little bitter.
Not too bitter, and has distinctive characteristic of IPA. Good IPA.
Careful, 6.4% ABV.

Aroma is citrus and herbs. Appearance is clear golden and pale. Taste is a nice bitterness. Palate is a thin texture, medium body and a average carbonation. The finish is long and bitter. Overall a great IPA with great bitterness.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Review based on BJCP2008 guidelines (style 14B). Bottle 35 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: malty sweet and caramely aroma. some very faint floral hop aromas. APPEARANCE: orangish/amber color and very hazy. thin head of a slight ivory color with average retention. TASTE: faint floral and grassy hop notes with a somewhat malty sweet background. medium bitterness that lingers beyond a semi-dry finish. PALATE: medium-light body with medium carbonation. OVERALL: an IPA that lacks the aromas and flavours of a dry hopped brew (maybe old bottle?).

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy yellowy orange colour with a finger or so of white head with little retention. The head fades leaving quite a bit of fine lacing.
Aroma: Pine, grapefruit, mandarin oranges, caramel, yeast, light malt.
Flavours: Pine, grapefruit, hops, cereal, hints of yeast.
Mouthfeel: Full and a bit sticky with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I love this IPA and have drank it many times but never rated it before for some reason. This to me is one of the best IPAs going. The aromas are strong with pine and citrus right off the bat. The flavour comes through full bore with pine and grapefruit. Awesome!

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.
