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!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
50cl bottle at the Rossmount Inn, St Andrews NB. A rather cloudy amber pour with a ring of head; malty taste; with a fruity bitterness. Rather inspiring and disappointing.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
