Pours a golden almost clear color. Lots of grapefruit on the nose and taste is same with lots of fruity grapefruit notes, bitterness of the hops lingers. At 6% goes down nice. Good beer.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour is golden and hazy. Smell is pine and tropical fruits with a twist of alcohol. Not bad as well. Medieum body, texture is rough and not very pleasant to the tongue. After taste is long in the back of the tongue and very citrusy. There are way better IPA out there but this one is still enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Guelph LCBO. Thanks Peter. Aroma: caramel, orange zest, citrus, tad of pines. App: hazy copper with small white head and some lacing. Taste and palate: light medium body, light sweetness, light to medium long bitter finish. Average carbonation. Overall: a good IPA, enjoyed the orange attack in mouth. Didn’t like that much that it was that much malty. Is this an extraordinary IPA? unfortunately no. There are way better IPA’s in Quebec but I still enjoyed it.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours slightly hazy pale amber with one finger of rocky white head, excellent retention and lacing. (5/5) Nose is tropical fruit, pithy citrus, pine resin, caramel malt. (8/10) Taste is mild sweet, strong bitter. (8/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, lingering slightly sticky bitter finish. (4/5)
Solid IPA - lots of hop bitter, citrus, and tropical fruit (mango and pineapple), balanced and supported with just enough malt. Can’t say I’m noticing any difference with its “Now Unfiltered” designation, other than the colour now being slightly hazy - I’d be lying if I said I could smell or taste the difference. Then again, it has been almost exactly a year since I had a filtered one, so… And yes, I once rated this a 9/10 - consider this updated rating more accurate. I was young(er) and foolish then - now I’m old(er) and, well, still foolish. (16/20)

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Vierte naranja algo turbio con pequeña corona de espuma y baja retención, pero que mantiene un fino cerco en copa; aromas a caramelo, miel, fruta tropical, pomelo, mandarina y levadura; en boca entrada media con amargor medio que se acentúa en el pos gusto pero sin ser molesto; cuerpo y carbónico medios, siguen notas a pino y flores, una buena ipa diferente a las americanas y final agradable.

I rated this exactly the same as the imperial version because....I said so. It looks and smells almost exactly the same, though obviously the imperial version has more of a boozy kick. I feel bad hating on this stuff, but I’m really just not a fan.
