4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
650ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium amber, with a large off-white head, which lasts well and leaves decent lacing. Grapefruit, citrus blossom and pine resin notes are strong in the aroma, with some fainter caramel malt. Powerful grapefruit and orange hops up front segue into citrus blossom and slightly sweet caramel malt in the mid-palate. Resurgent grapefruit hops come in at the finish, along with some pine resin, which lingers into the aftertaste. This is a nice, potent IPA, with some interesting hops flavours.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
First pour mid April in Toronto after a day of snowfall with Brazilian beer chicken on BBQ. Head is one finger cottage cheese that leaves hipster ’stash on first sip. Goes down smooth & twangy. Wouldn’t call it brutal but I will call it for a second date.
