4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Having this imported pint now in February. First had it last summer on vacation. They say right on the bottle they might vary batch to batch. Well if they’re looking for a keeper this would prolly be it. I’m trying to think of an IPA that is DEFINITELY better than this, but it is right up there with my favourites. In the summer I wasn’t as taken aback, but I still loved it. Nice syrupy mouthfeel, with an intense bitterness. A lotta bitter actually, nice pine outburst, and medicinal hop punch. The IBUS must be high. Too bad we don’t know. BTW I really love the picture for this on this site; a bottle holder sculpted freeform out of the neighbouring surroundings of the brewery i can assume. True Maritime form. YIPPEE IPA!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear copper with a big foamy and sticky head. Aroma is sugary caramel, some mild citrus. Taste is light on bitterness, some mild citrus and a toffee malt. Decent but not a stand out

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours cloudy darj golden with a small white cap, some retention and lacing. bretty, maple, citrus, pine, orange and apple juice - quite fruity in fact. moderate carbonation, light to medium bdy - oily, tad heavy, slightly harsh piney-citrusy finish. certainly not a fail anyway, but glad bretts were in this bottle (read here that rating is biased).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle. One of the best from Picaroons. Pours a nice amber colour with huge white head that stays around for a while. Aroma is floral, caramel, malts. Taste of citrus. Worth a try.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Clear auburn colour. Very muted aroma with some floral hops and a bit of funk. Medium bodied brew with a bitter finish but a real lactic or diacetyl note. not good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tried poured from a bottle served ice cold at a bar. It improved as it warmed up. Colour was an orangey amber, nice solid head. Aroma was primarily citrus, probably more orange and lemon notes. Taste was really good, hoppy but not overwhelming. Palate was a little less full than I like for an IPA. Overall, nice beer!

Mostly clear orange copper, creamy lasting off white head. Caramel malt forward aroma, herbal citrus hops. Caramel, toffee maltiness, balanced with resiny citrus hops. Softly carbed, medium bodied, medium hopped. Bitter earthy, rich malt finish. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

A 50 cl bottle from The Met Liquor Store in New West. Medium reddish amber color with a bit of whitish head. Bitter citrus hops and caramel on the nose. This is confirmed on tasting. A very well balanced beer. 3.5.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2013 copper color with a frothy off white head that dissipates quickly but leaves a lot of sticky lace. Smells of toffee and caramel with some citrus. Taste is a big punch of malts up front and then a nice smooth bitterness on the finish. Seems like a hybrid between an American and English ipa

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a nice clean copper with white head and nice sticky lace. Smells of sweet malty aromas. Tastes of mild citrus bitterness, malty caramel flavors with a hint of booze. Decent beer but by the style not top of its class for sure.
