3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Hazy gold. Thin, slightly sticky, white head. Fusty orange, toffee sweetness. Quite resinous, in a Simcoe hop kind of way? A hint of black pepper. Hint of lemon rind. Taste has a spicy edged, dry, rising bitterness. Full, sticky palate. Some alcohol warmth. Finish is spicy bitter, that lingers. Dry close.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
[bottle from LCBO]
Potent hops aroma with a rubber-orange note that is characteristic of Pacific Jade hops. Base malt is also present, but in the background. Hazy copper under a thin, white sheet that persists. Sweet malt flavour that quickly develops into a cat pee and rubber-orange hops. Ethanol and assertive bitterness come in later. Well balanced for an IIPA. Medium body, slightly warming, medium carbonation, lingering bitter finish.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a deep golden yellow, slight haze, pure white head, medium retention, but leaves beautiful lacing. Aroma bursts forth with amazing hop presence, resin, pine spring forward. Medium bodied, the first second is fraught full of malty sweetness (crystal/Candi sugar?), immediately followed by a staying bitterness dominated by pine. An absolute delight.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Average head. Fresh smell. Slightly hazy. Weak body but a strong hoppy flavor, heaps of grapefruit and pine. Restrained sweetness. Overhopped, I would say.
