Weak grassy scent. Light golden pour with a bubbly head. Very easy to drink. Doesn’t have that IPA bite. Neutral on this one. I’m guessing most pale ale fans won’t like this one much

Slightly cloudy copper pour with tan head. Heavy nose of resinous hops and roasted malts, with some earthiness. Nice hop bitterness, again, lots of piney flavours, and well balanced subtle sweetness. Nice bitter finish.

Lots of flavour in this beer. Very sweet with lots of hops on the tongue. Smooth bitter aftertaste. Nice beer to try but very intense taste that could make you sick fast.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.5 oz bottle from the LCBO, served in a snifter. Pours clear amber with a moderate tan head that remains and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has notes of pine and toasty malts along with resin and citrus. The flavour is moderately bitter throughout with notes from the nose along with subtle caramel toasty malt sweetness. The finish is moderate in length with a mild grassy hoppy bitterness. On the palate it is light-medium in body with a milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall this is a decent piney, resinous IPA in the English style. Subtle and tasty, very well brewed. 2013-03-11

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
341 ml bottle from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.
App.: Slightly hazy deep amber with a small off-white head.
Aroma: Lots of sticky caramel, some butterscotch, floral and resinous hops, lemony citrus, almost brothy, slightly peppery, a little dusty/musty, a bit fruity, a little too malt-forward for my tastes.
Palate: Medium+ body, moderately prickly effervescence.
Flav.: Some pine/resin hops, mild citrus zing, still plenty of caramel malt, a touch dank and a bit fruity, less broth/dust than the nose, alright; dry with pretty good bitterness and a fairly nice pine/resin/floral hop finish.
Not perfect for my palate, but pretty good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma is grapefruit, apricot and some citrus with the malt sweetness. Taste is a blast of grapefruit, tart citrus and apricot hop bitterness with small malt sweets. Interesting IPA. First one I’ve had that really leans towards the citrus and tartness

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear golden color with a white head that dissipates into a white hat that leaves some nice sticky lacing. Aroma of citrus, pine, toffee and some kind of sweet green apple on the end. Taste is slight citrus up front with a burst of grapefruit bitterness. Hop bitterness is pretty present and sticks around at the end.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle. Pours a dark golden colour with an excellent head atop. Potent pine aroma, Apple’s and a touch of lemon too. Prominent hoppy flavor as you’d expect, not too sweet though more of a malty/caramel flavor. Lingering aftertaste and not excessively carbonated tick my box.
