4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 5+14 oz
Hazy blond color with compact persistent head. Peculiar aroma, very nice: it’s fruity, grapey, possibly also cheesy (goat cheese). The lean pale malt body is a great choice, still it conveys quality; hop explosion, very resiny, bitter, quite fruity and piney.
Great, straight, modern IPA.

Bottle @ RBSG 2015. Just a couple bucks at Whole Foods. Light golden colored beer with a white head. Plenty of orange and grapefruit hop aromas to this. A bit of pine, grass, and subtle tropical fruits along with a bready malt base. The flavor has more malt than I expected from the aroma, but isn’t overly sweet. Good citrusy hops and pine bitterness. Dry finish with some grass and cracker. Pretty solid beer.

On tap at pFriem, pours a clear golden copper with a small white head. Aroma brings out loads of pine, with a bit of floral and grapefruity hops -- very aromatic. Flavour brings out a blast of piney hops, with some citrus and grapefruit cutting in later on. Just enough balance from crackery malts to back the high dosage of hops. Finishes very bitter and dry. Definitely an IPA for more extreme hop heads. Excellent.

500 ml bottle, one of those awesome new ones. Looks amazing. Pours a bight copper color with a medium white head. A big dank fruity hop nose. The flavor is resin, huge dank fresh hops, caramel, candied oranges, pine. Very flavorful, the intensity is there, but this is smooth as well. Really a lot like Pliny. Wow! Blown away. Oranges, more dankness. Bitterness mixed with sweet bursting hops. Lovely.

Sampled at the hrewpub. Clear amber hold with an off white head. Lots of lacing. Hoppy PopTarts in my mouth. Pine with pears and rich sweet malts. Now tasting citrus and tropical fruit. Nice change of pace mid sample. Graham crackers. Yes.
