2.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear dark copper colour with small white head and big lasting lace. Smell is minimal im getting a light tangerine smell possibly something else but I can’t quite separate it. Taste is mostly bitterness from hops without much flavoring hops and light malt finish. Nice clean easy drinking ipa, definitely more of an English ipa. Good beer but nothing makes it stand out.

This is a decent IPA. Looks, smells, and tastes good, but nothing super special.

Sampled at the GCBF. Quite hazy, nose has no bitterness or tartness whatsover, only sweet tangerine and malt. Flavour is a tad more bitter and the fruit comes through. A very average IPA, offers nothing special; if you take the average balance of bittering and aroma hops, this is slightly tipped toward bittering, but it’s not particularly strong.

Pours a hazy burnt range with a off white/tan mostly remaining medium sized head. Inviting aroma with a medium intensity. Sweet, bitter, earthy, floral aromas. Medium in it’s intensity, and aftertaste. Has a coarse coarse quality to it. Creamy round texture with a bitter, hop, malty taste. Rich well-balanced quality. Appreciated.

Pours hazy roange with nice long lasting head. First aroma is skunk, but opens up more with notes of honey and sweet clementines. Citrus on the palate..some sweetness balanced nicely with a hoppy finish. Very enjoyable ipa.

An attractive amber colour with nice lacing. Malty, wet wood, with a touch of hops on the aroma. Flavour is nicely balanced..definitely a British style IPA, not crazy bitter, some nice malts in here. Soft creamy finish. Very enjoyable.
