3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
341 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a stem glass. Pours clear golden with a moderate, fluffy off-white head that mostly remains and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. The nose has big notes of grapefruit and resin along with a touch of pale malt. The flavour is quite bitter with big grapefruit notes and a touch of tropical fruit. Hops are dominant, but pale malts and a touch of caramel come through as well. The finish is long and bitter with grapefruit notes from the nose. On the palate it is medium in body with a dry texture and average carbonation. Overall, this is a decent IPA, but it is somewhat one-dimensionally grapefruit. 2013-04-21

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very enjoyable clean crisp IPA. Pours golden with sufficient foamy head. Smells of citrusy hops, but not overly so. Tastes of slight grapefruit and lemon citrus with a light bittering finish. Very sessionable.

6-pack from the LCBO. Pours clear and golden. Aroma sweet malt and C-hop candy. Taste starts off with nice sweet malt, moving quickly into bitter and sour citrus fruits. Good body and carbonation. Nice.

From bottle. Great zesty citrus grapefruit aroma up front that does not go away. Taste is smooth and only a very mild bitter. Very drinkable. Pours a clear light golden colour.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
341 ml bottle, 6.5% a/v
Pours a rich gold with a nice slightly offwhite head. Aroma is big time citrus and pine hops, a bit of caramel and alcohol subnotes. The taste is also very hoppy, but fairly well balanced by the malt. You have to love hops to love this beer but thankfully i LOVE them. Palate is great and retains the hop bitterness for a long time, very effervescent with the carbonation. Overall a pretty good brew!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
341 mL bottle. I assume. Could be 355. I didn’t look. Orange-golden with a nice, sticky, white head. Hoppy aroma - mostly pine. Same for the flavour. More hop flavour than bitterness. Not that this beer is sweet or anything. There is bitterness in the finish. Nice IPA, and it stands out because of the pine, rather than the sitrus flavour that most North American IPAs lean toward.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark golden with a foamy head that sticks around as a light covering. Lots of lacing. Nose is pine with maybe a hint of garlic. Aromas are pine, grapefruit, maybe some garlic and a very faint biscuit in the background. Taste is mostly in the stong bitterness in the end. Medium body with some silkyness. Nice beer!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice strong piney/citrus aroma on this one. The pine is the predominant note here. Fairly clear with a golden color, long lasting white head. Taste is very much representative of the nose, pine comes through right away, but some oniony and grapefruit notes come through as well. A bit of biscuity malt. Taste is very short-lived, a watery aftertaste and bitterness on the palate is the only thing that lingers very shortly after a sip. Medium bodied. A bit unbalanced but a pretty good and assertive IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2013 Slightly hazy, dark amber IPA. Potent hoppy nose. Full flavoured, with tones of apricot. Well balanced and fresh with lots of hops, but a modest ABV. I liked it a lot. Nice sessionable IPA.
