4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Hazy golden color with medium sized head. The aroma is pungent, with resiny hops and some fruity hops too. The mouthfeel is rather dry, lean, with underlying toffee malts, and above an explosion of fresh resiny hops; piney and citrusy.
Very easy to drink, the pleasure of an IPA.

Orange colored beer with a white head. Sweet citrus and candy on the nose. Sugar, caramel, and pine. Maybe a touch of kiwi (the one really nice thing about the beer). Flavor is sweet and malty. Sugar, caramel, and bread. Pine, some grapefruit, and a hint of bitterness.

Bomber from CraftShack. Pours amber gold with a decent foamy white head. Aroma is mixed citrus/resin. Med body. It’s very hoppy stuff. It’s earthy, floral, citrus, pine - sort of in that sequence. The malt holds the hop, but very, very gently. This is an ale that suggest there’ll be a hop burn. Finishes earthy bitter for me. Just excellent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Stone Escondido. Clear orange. Decent lace. Red fruit and melon nose. Clean body, not as abusive as the other IPAs on tap today. Butterscotch adds some density and needed sweetness. Still, quite heavy on the bitterness. Solid.

22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy golden blonde with a small white head. Nose brings out earthy funk, piney and floral hops, and dry biscuity malt. Flavour is rich and robust, with a load of pine and floral hops. Super dry and flavourful, with exceedingly high drinkability. Excellent stuff.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can, thanks to Ingo! Sampled on April 7, 2015.
Clear golden color, white head. Scent is intense tropical fruits; passion fruit, mango, papaya, pineapple; hoppy, a bit caramelly malty sweet. Hoppy, green, herbal, bitter, alcohol taste. Warming alcohol. Hoppy, citrus aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, medium high to high bitterness.
Alcohol and bitterness a bit unbalanced for my taste.
