3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours crystal clear gold with a small white top. Aroma is grapefruit and citrus hops with grass. Taste is a bright citrus and orange hop bitterness up front. A little grassy malt and then finish. Not much to the lingering bitterness and no dankness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 mL bottle. Brilliantly clear golden with, unfortunately, very little head. Lemon and grapefruit in the nose. The flavour is lovely, with the citra countered by some bready malt. Good bitterness. Carbonation is a touch on the high side. Nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle from LCBO served cool in a tulip glass. Clear deep golden with a fluffy white head. Pungent, bright lemon citrus, resin, pepper, dank, some tropical fruit, lovely hop expression. Medium body, slightly relaxed carbonation. Citrus and tropical fruit with an unfortunate mold favour, citrus comes through fairly strongly; off-dry with decent bitterness and a fruity and citrusy finish. Oh you devil....

500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear golden colour with modest-sized white head. Aroma is sweet and citric with some biscuity grains and grass. Flavour has solid citric hoppiness with sweet, biscuity malt and some spicy grassiness. Carbonation on the gentler side. Pleasant.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smells fairly nice, if a bit subdued. Some citrus, light malt and a hint of sourness. Completely clear, golden yellow with a quickly dissipating white head. Taste is quite malty, a hint of sourness, some of the citrus hops present in the aroma. Finish is slightly sour. Not too great. Medium bodied, average carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from the lcbo. Clear copper pour, small off white head. Slightly skunky aroma, loads of fuggles and goldings upfront, with some citrus and pine resin. Very strong pithy bitterness with a good balance of biscuity malts. A nice British style ipa using West coast techniques with UK hops.

From tap, pours a clear yellow with a thick white head. The smell is green, wet hops, vegetation. The taste is wet hops, dank, some citrus, pine ending dry. The body is light with average carbonation. Quite nice...

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden amber. Aroma of greenness, not sure how else to describe: it’s verdant: some hops, but not really typical IPA: grassy greenness going on. Tastes of passion fruit, green grass and pine. Piney hoppy lingering aftertaste. Not your typical IPA. Nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very decent IPA, citra lead. Good quaffable citra and balanced, though I’ve done this type of American IPA before. Slight palate erasing
