Pours amber. Pine notes in the aroma, with overtones of pine and grapefruit in the flavor. Nice balance between the big hops and the malt sweetness. Not as complex as I might have liked, but overall a good American IPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can at Cafe Sara, september 12th 2014. Amber body with a white head. Aroma of pine and grass, caramel, mild mango. Taste is sweet malty with grassy and piney hops, mild alcohol notes, ending with a grassy aftertaste with pineapple hints. Missing some fresh fruitiness in this one, suspect it’s a bit old though I find no brew date on the can.

Can from Stewart’s Wine Company December 2013. Now that is what I call a good beer. Well balanced without overloading on hops. Fills the mouth with flavour that lasts and lasts.

"Ratin beer while in line to see Tinkerbell. Enjoyed this tall boy last night. It really is like a blend of dales pale and gubna. Big juicy dank hops, especially in the flavor, with all the accompanying glorious sweetness. SO easy and smooth for a thick 8% brew. Pineapple, fruit and a little spicy in the finish. Absolutely love it!

Pours from can a somewhat hazy gold. Nice nose of citrus, floral and pine. Taste of some caramel and citrus, and then a hop bomb - maybe overly so. It's good, but not great.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Heavy smell of hops. Dark amber colour, high creamy beige head. Heavy aroma of hops, some licorice and oak, maybe some rum. Some hint of spices in the background. Very flat carbon, oily texture. Bitter of course, but also surprisingly sweet to it.

A – Copper red, with a thick beige head.
S – Pine, some small citrus, quite caramelly but hop forward.
T – Super balanced, some malt sweetness to it, piney with some citrus input.
M – Medium, very good level of carbonation, and very mouthfilling.
