3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
650 ml bomber with an awesome label. Pours a clear, filtered golden colour with a big pillowy white head and a fair amount of carbonation. Fruity Belgian yeast wafts across the room as soon as this is opened. Tastes are of pine, yeast, honey, with hints of caramel.
Overall, an interestingly hopped beer, that has above average aromas and flavour. The only real knock I have on it is that huge Belgian head, that resists settling. This one is worth purchasing more than one of.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650mL bomber. Pours surprisingly clear golden with a massive white head that laces incessantly, a really nice looking brew. Lots going on aroma-wise as well, pine and citrus pith hop with yeasty spices, dried fruit and a toasty malt backdrop. Slightly sweet with a bitter finale and traces of alcohol. Creamy and full bodied. I heard Ontario’s recent shipment of BC goods was pretty stale, but this seems above par to me. Nice work,

Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A great sweet fruity nose. A rich great flavor: robust bitterness, candied fruit, super sweet oranges, caramel, toast. This is a huge and very drinkable

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours sparkling gold with a plush two finger cap. This is a spicy, yeasty & piney IPA. It’s thick with flavour, most of it good (deep hops & zesty yeast) & some of it not so good (a slight mineral water aftertaste). Shawna takes a sip & says its like licking a deep woods hiking trail. Overall, I really like it. Tasty, refreshing & chewy. As it settles in the glass in turns into a groovy IPA with the Belgian twist. My kind of brew. And absolutely love the label design.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a one finger white head. The nose is up front with the Belgian yeast. Wet concrete, paraffin, lemon zest, light spice. The taste starts with metallic hops, light citrus, mineral notes, spice, and considerable bitterness and leads into more Belgian characteristics, yeast, mineral notes, with lots of spice and wet concrete in the finish. A little sweet under the yeast, and hops, but it’s a good effort.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Single bomber from the LCBO. Pours a rich golden colour with a frothy white head that is huge, stays long and creates loads of fluffy foam lacing. Smells like an IPA at first pour with citrus grass, but the Belgian Ale yeast comes out as soon. The mix is a fruity and caramel one. The taste is pretty sweet and the dry finish is quite low. Some decent bitterness does appear in the aftertaste. Still, can’t say I am a fan of this one. Much better out there for the style, like Duvel and Chouffe ones.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly cloudy pale yellow with a fluffy off\f white head that fades slowly and leaves a bit of lace. Nose is earthy hops with citrus (mostly orange peel) and pine as well as lots of yeasty spice. Light caramel sweetness to start with the bold hops providing a great bitterness in the middle which is countered in the end with a peppery spice. Medium oily mouth with average carbonation and a long dry spicy finish. Listed here as a DIPA but listed on the bottle as a Belgian IPA. Definitely has a Belgian yeast character but the hops are enough to not make the yeast the focal point.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aromas of mango, pineapple, pine, some citrus, white pepper and just a touch of fusel on the back. Golden colour beneath a creamy head that lasts for a while. The taste is definitely bitter balanced with topical fruit coming though. Medium to light bodied, leaving a bitter and slightly spicy after taste. Almost a winner, but just falls short in one or two areas.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 1/20
Lots of white head. Aroma of Belgian triple and grapefruit. Powerful citrus hops balanced by malty trippel with taste of honey and orange.
