2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Transparent and pale orangish-copper in color with a saliva spittle and dusty grey wrung to form the head. Orange rind, laundry water, wet dog, simcoe and musty hard water do little to excite from the nose. Liquid farce is a watered down flavor. Hops barely bare their teeth, subsiding with citric oranges and sweet papaya. Mild carbonation merely masks a wishy-washy failsafe tenement. An uninspiring pale ale, but thanks to 1FastSTi for sharing, nonetheless.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from LCBO. Hazy gold. Aroma: peach and pine. Taste: pine, fruits, medium-bitter finish. An relatively easy-drinking IPA, nothing wrong with it.

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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Displays a deep orange amber in the glass...frothy 2 finger white cap with good retention and lacing.
Aromas of sweet bread and citrus.
Medium bodied decent malt spine, bright citrusy character, slick mouth feel.
Up front a rush of sweet crystal malts which are quickly balanced off with ample grapefruit and pine tastes from some 60 min. boil warrior and dry hopped amarillos ( great hop blend)....finish is wet and pleasantly bittering with a bready/metallic aftertaste.
A good solid craft IPA that sits somewhere between the milder session IPAs and the exterme hop bombs....goot hoppy character rich malts and decent drinkability.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle via OKbeer. A solid and stable example of an IPA. nose is butterscotch covered hops....yeah I know. A deep amber with a finger thick oily tannish head. Settles with dense fine lacing to a dozen lilly pad carbonation points. Three separate waves of hops hit the tounge from start to finish. Body is medium. a nice one.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear amber and orangey colour with a one finger head that turns into a sticky ring of lace. The aroma is spicy, piney, and floral but not quite as potent as I have experienced in other American IPAs.
The taste is more assertive with some hints of toffee and strong citrus. There is nice bitter finish to each sip.
This beer goes down quite smooth. This is one of the more well balanced IPAs I’ve enjoyed.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(650 ml bottle (produced in week 1, May ’07) from the brewery) Nice, a little light in just about every way...Pours light slightly amberish gold with three fingers of pillowy white head. Sweetish aroma of light toffee, pine and flowers. Mouthfeel smooth, feels a bit light. Lots of foamy rings and sheets of lacing. Flavor is good but on the mild (and probably filtered) side - light malt sweetness overlain by medium bitterness with pine and flowery, very lightly fruity hops. Slight metallic taste detected a couple of times.
