Bottled at the bicycle thief, Halifax. Hazy orange body, medium small bubbled white head. The aroma is orange, cucumber and some spice I quite can’t place. The taste is slightly watery, but overall very citrusy and not overly hoppy.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. 500ml. Pours a hazy orange with red-copper highlights and a faint green edge. Small disappearing head. Aroma is of grassy hops, malt, faint sourness and a hint of butterscotch. Taste is more grassy noble hops, also mandarin citrus (Summit?) adding a west coast note to the advertised east coast style. Again some sourness on the tongue though not unpleasant. Resinous piney zing on the finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
From a 500 ml bottle purchased and consumed in Nova Scotia.
Looks good, having a particularly fine head, but the aroma and the flavor are not appealing. I believe this is mostly due tot he particular mix of earthy hops used, but the bottle may be a bad sample.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden amber color. Creamy beige 1 finger head lasting around 4 minutes. Strong legs and some nice activity.
Strong aromas and flavors of herbal and floral hops, clove, citrus and caramel . Super sharp and crisp bitter taste but very flavorful and pleasant.
Medium slick body with perfect carbonation. Strong and long bitter finish, slightly mouthcoating and chalky, ending with a powerful smoky clove like feel on the tongue.
Overall : Well crafted with some nice freshness and packed with flavors, but slightly too sour and spicy for my taste.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear dark amber with a tiny white head that doesn’t last. Prominent toffee and honey nose with faint grass and pine notes. Light sweet toffee with a muddled medium- bitterness. Medium slick mouth with soft carbonation and a short bitter finish. No date on this bottle, but I’m hoping it is just off. Will update if the next one is any better.
