3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, picked up at Cascadia Liquors (Quadra).
Pours clear, golden, with a small, white, fizzy head.
Quite a bit of fruity esters in both aroma and taste, seems like a typical Belgian yeast strain. Some floral and grassy hops that feel a little dusty.
Not bad but not really good either.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Vancouver private store. Initially hoppy, and then a good balance, malt and yeast. Tasty, great drinkability. Would like to get more bold citrus hoppy flavour, but still one of the best of this style.Pours cloudy light orange body with a generous head and lacey.Smooth mouthfeel.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poor is on the darker side of an IPA. Smells like peanut butter on wheat bread with slight hop aroma. Taste still seams to be kinda mealy with a pretty decent hop middle. Overall ok beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
8/5/11. 750mL bottle courtesy Adam! Nice cloudy orange-ish pour with a small off-white head. Fruity, estery aroma of Belgian yeast with a nice combo of floral hoppiness. Sweet, and almost slightly tart, flavor with more Belgian yeast, plenty of bitter hop kick, and a surprising malt presence. Not bad!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to manuchampions for this. Pours a clear golden yellow with a big frothy white head. Aroma is corn, hops and bready yeast. Taste is a very pleasant bready yeast with a decent pine hop bitter blast. A really nice cross of a belgian and IPA. I’d drink this again and again.

a new rate in a month or six, many to follow, not quick though beer is expensive in Vancouver. You get what it says on the bottle, a belgian ipa. fruitful sweet, but some clear ipa aroma. pretty decent beer
