Pours a nice amber color. Very malty aroma and aftertaste. Moderate hops. Drinks very smooth. Reminds me of a more traditional IPA.

A very malty IPA. I guess a bit English in style. Bottle at bobs. Liked it dark orange color.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Crisp amber and copper coloured body with a nice two centimetre tall just off-white head. Aroma of slightly stale hops, some mild malt and a tiny bit of sugars - not too much. Medium-bodied; Strong stale malt notes with a hint of nuts and earth and a tiny bit of hops detectable with more of a PNW or citrusey flavour and not much else, except for some stale and pale malt notes. Aftertaste shows a bland flavour with not much going for it aside for some minor hops that seem stale. Overall, I was expecting a typical IPA with some good freshness and a pungent malt backbone and I didn’t get any of that - just some stale flavours and a bit of offputting alcohol and bitterness. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Giant Food in Falls Church, Virginia on 25-February-2014 for US$4,49 sampled at home in Washington on 04-August-2014.

Bottle. Pours a fairly clear orange color with some haze. Aroma is deep hops, moss, wet wood and dark fruit. Flavor is woody, mossy and leafy hops. Finishes hoppy and bitter.

This is a good IPA, with the usual dominating hops. It has a medium body and nice clarity. The hops are good, even though they are out of balance with the malt.

Reviewed from notes.
This one was poured into a pint glass most of the time, but twice I did have it in a tulip. There really wasn’t any change between the two.
The appearance was a decent looking hazy orange to amber color with a decent one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than about thirty seconds.
The smell was a bit grassy with some light hay features and a really light added floral-ness to it.
The taste was sweet and grassy with a light bitterness added in to try and balance it.
On the palate, it sat about a light to medium and holding a decent sessionable quality about it. The carbonation is somewhat there but stays pretty subdued for an AIPA.
Overall, not a bad beer, but nothing really outstanding either.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Comse across as a bit of a soft IPA, pith and peel that aren’t too bitter.   Sofi sweetness.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Decent beer, not too exciting.   Not a hop bomb, low bitterness.   Tiz okay, but a little average.   Fairly clean tho.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Amber color, clean, with creamy head. Caramelly aroma, very light animal accent. Good strength; malt and caramel flavor, with light residual sweetness, mild fruity character, strong bitterness and light animal touch.
Good beer, a bit hard, a bit old style IPA.
