3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2005 [Bottle 650ml, 15C, 1 month old]
Thanks again to OKBeer! Copper color, nice white head, but very short retention (may be a little warm, so I wont deal with severely) Intense hop aroma, alcohol laces on the glass. Taste is fade for the first second, then it feels medium malty and ends with a very nice hop finish.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Growler) Pours a slightly hazy medium copper with a short-lived two finger head diminishing to a thin skim and heavy lacing. Nose is floral and herbal hops, biscuity malt, tropical fruit. Taste is sweet malt and mild floral hops. Medium bodied and chewy, with moderate carbonation and a bitter finish.
This is a decently balanced brew, with good hop presence and a solid malt backbone. Nothing stellar, but a solid brew.

650 mls bottle. Pours orange almost like ginger ale with a frothy off-white head, leaving lots of lacing behind. Aroma is quite pleasant: Citrus fruits with notes of pine. Citrus fruits, caramel and malt flavours with a lingering bitter finish. Very refreshing.

Bomber into a tumbler. Pours a clear golden colour with a light fluffy head and some lacing. Light grassy aroma, not too overpowering. Good hoppiness with sweet malts and some dry bitterness. Light and crisp.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear copper-orange with a small head of soap suds.
Smells of malty bread, grain, and big lemon hops.
Mouthfeel is crisp and has just the right amount of carbonation.
Taste is a bit molasses, some honey, grapefruit, unsweetened cocoa powder, and a good-sized hoppy bitter finish (not a hop-bomb, but good for an IPA as far as I’m concerned). The aftertaste is metallic, bitter, and lemon tang.
A good IPA for light sessions. I was very impressed with it. I would most definitely pick this up again. Too bad I bought it in Nova Scotia... I can’t get it at home.

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.

Pint off tap from hotel bar in Truro NS. Aroma was nice and flavor good at first. As I drank the pint it became less desirable though. The hops were there , just in a intrusive not balanced sort of way. Still a drinkable beer though, just not one I would get get again.
