Bottle at a brilliant hotel in Port Rexton (the Fishersí Loft) that will hopefully be allowed to sell the local brews some time soon. OK, as a Brit I know our own IPAs have a reputation for being a tad restrained but there is subtle and there is underpowered and this one is the latter. Dabs of English hops, a flabby body for a 5.7% ABV beer and, well, not much else.

One of Quidi Vidi tastier offerings, in that it has a actual taste instead of iceberg BS. Pours a very light clear amber with a nice size head. Aroma is of caramel, toffee, herbs, and earthy hops. Tastes of toffee, caramel, earth, and herbs. Has a medium smooth body with average carbonation. A nice unique take on the style that is more malt forward, but I am okay with that.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is....pretty damn good! I had a few of Quidi Vidiís light beers at a PEI Beer Festival and was not impressed so this is a huge improvement. Itís a pretty blonde amber with a muscular ivory noggin. A wallop of sweet biscuit malt paired with mildly spicy, earthy herbal hops is very pleasant to the olfactories. The taste is not at all typical of North American IPAs, which is nice. Very malt forward and bitter in a quintessentially British manner, almost politely bitter and not at all aggressive. Nice lacing on this medium bodied, lightly oily and mid-low carbonated UKíd treat.

Pours clear orange with an initial frothy head and tons of lacing. Nose is a bit of English tea. Notes is tea, some light fruit, some light graham cracker, light earthy bitterness. Tastes light/med sweet and light bitter. Pretty watery body with low-ish carbonation.

Very nice golden color with very little carbonation. Plenty of hops in this beer, definitely the predominant taste off the top. The aftertaste is pleasantly smooth and mild for a 5.7% beer. Not a bad beer overall!

Sample at Picaroon's Brewer's Bash. British style IPA, floral and earthy hops, relatively bitter, but not in an adventurous way. Sweet, malt behind it, almost like a bitter. Overall, too English style for me, but a nice attempt.

Picked up a six-pack last week and it instantly become one of my favorites. This beer has a smooth, flavorful taste, with just enough hopping to give a sharp aftertaste. Initial head which quickly dissipates into nothing. Color is amber-orange. Smells spicy, yet fruity. Taste is bitter yet sweet. A great beer overall, definitely would buy again.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
The initial pour is quite nice, with a nice amber color and substantial head. The head fades very quickly however and youíre left with a dead looking beer. Very mild aroma here, not a real big hop anywhere. I do get some hints of citrus. Taste is also not much. There is some bitterness, but not really enough for the style. Palate is OK, but kind of dead in general. Really need to be better.
