3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice amber orange with thin white head. Aroma of citrus hops ever so slight, but dulled compared to other non-floral hops. Flavor at first was extremely different for an IPA, but came back somewhat, but defniitely has itís own character in the IPA world.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber pour, lacing, half inch white head. Caramel, bread and stone fruits in aroma. Medium body with crisp carhonation. Pale malts, a hint of rye with bitter hops. Could do with more late additions, leans too much in the bitter for my taste. Dryish finish. Its ok, not a favorite.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. I would disagree with commercial description and say many donít enjoy this swill. Very cloudy brown (why is that?) and heavy malt presence. I couldnít find much hops. Totally didnít like this one, very disappointing.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Bitter Tasting Room in Vancouver. An apricot coloured beer, with a bit of whitish head. Hey, now this here is a hop monster if Iíve ever tasted one! The hops really assault the taste buds, such that itís hard to determine the character, but citrus and pine notes come to mind.
