3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Kingston Taphouse and Grille, Vancouver
Dark amber color with creamy head. Light aroma of caramel and very light earthy touch (manure). Nice caramel flavor, quite lean mouthfeel, with correct bitterness.
Easy, flawless, not bad.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy dull amber, leafy, floral and light caramel aroma, a bit fizzy, but nice fruity, floral character. Kind of yeasty and muddled, though, tough to get through a full one.

Bottle at West Coast Brew Fest 2014. Pours copper with a white head. Light fruit/malt aromas. Med body, maybe. Flavor is roast malt with very little hop. It’s an amber. Good for an amber tho.

On tap @ Parallel 49. Amber pour with a finger of white foam. Lemon preserves and lots of orange and grapefruit on the nose. Some pine along with a dominating toasted malt profile. Some caramel, too. Fairly floral. Flavor has some citric acidity along with a heavily toasted malt base. Rather floral and citrusy. Some resinous pine bitterness. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not a bad red, fresh from LCBO. Lasting head, reddish colour. Some hops that give it a grapefruit-orange finish to a malty English style ale. Slightly above average mouthfeel.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep amber pour with a thick off-white head. The aroma is quite hoppy and fresh. A nice bright tropical fruitiness. Mango and pine with a bit of light caramel and toffee on the back. Juicy and fresh. There was a little bit of light toffee and a touch of sweetness. It’s the nicest of the three beers in the mixed pack - fresh and fruity. Very close to IPA territory with the level and expressiveness of the hopping. Nice stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2012 2012-10-27. Murky dark amber brown body, small beige head. Modest green leafy hops grow as you work through it, good amount of malt. 7+ Flavour has modest bitterness, green leafy hop character, pleasant modest bitterness, mild base malt. 7+ Modest fruity bitterness lingers. 7+ Smooth average plus body has light carbonation. Decent, I enjoyed it but it was a bit too mild overall. As Gyparillo Red IPA at Cask Days 2012 at Brick Works, Toronto

Bottle. Red-orange amber colour with a medium off-white head. No lace. Aroma is hopper than I expected, with nice underlying dark caramel. Lightly toasty, lightly earthy caramel shares the palate with lightly piney fruity hops. Actually a well balanced hoppy amber. Mouthfeel is a tad thin considering this is 6%, but overall I was pleasantly surprised.

On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a clear amber with a small white head. Aroma is hoppy with caramel malts, and dry citrus hops - fairly standard for an amber. Flavour is well-balanced between dry caramel malts and dry citrus hops. Surprisingly flavourful for the style, though fairly standard. Decent stuff.
