3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
650ml bottle given to me by a friend. Pours a light, clear amber with ample cream head that diminishes slowly to a thin ring. Aroma is caramel malt only just edged out by citrusy, grapefruit hops. Taste is not as bitter as I would like. Grapefruit and earthy caramel malt fight it out with no clear winner. Finish is bitter and pleasing but a little late. Not bad.

Had to pick a bottle of this up. For the kitsch if nothing else (that and the fact that the stamp on the bottle says itís 5 days old). The guy I bought it from in Vancouver, BC said it was almost embarrassing that it existed. Pours a nice amber with a decent off-white head. Hops on the nose - good blend of citrus and pine, with caramel malts to counter. Flavor lacks a bit in the hop category - doesnít pull through on the aroma. More malty than Iíd like, and slightly metallic. Decent mouthfeel, but thereís nothing to write home about here. Still - better than I expected.

nice light copper/orange apprearance with thick head. Nose is toasty with light grapefruit. Toasty/biscuit and mid range grapefruity finish. Tastes more like a strong english bitter.

Split the 650ml bottle with father while having lunch on the patio of the Urban lounge. Brown hazy body with a limited cap, looks good. Nice toasted malts, good sweetness, caramel, strong but not overpowering hops. Great patio beer light easy drinking with a good strong flavour. Wish i took better notes but you know.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Light amber color. Aroma is very straight forward. Caramel malt, citrus and floral hops. Nothing mind blowing here, but still a clean and respectable brew. Flavor is a combo of caramel malt with a fair dose of hops. I enjoyed it and it gets bonus points from me for the name and the bottle design. Well played...eh

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Colour: Clear and rich red/brown with medium-high head. Nose: Multi-grain toast, lemon, faint hop, granny smith apple. Taste: Tangy orange, biting fresh malt, middle roasted pepper and hops, and more tart-tang on the finish with a caramel dominant with hop trace finish. Not as hoppy as I would have liked/expected but quite a rich treat without being too sweet!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear gold with a medium white head, sweet malt aroma - hops maybe? Cheap malt sweetness partnered with slightly stale hops, bitter with little character. Good carbonation, crisp body. Drinkable, but nothing special.

Sampled at Darbyís Liquor Store. Aroma and flavour of grapefruit, and citrus hops. Fairly lively. Decent IPA but nothing to write home about. Quite standard.
