3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
25th January 2015
Light haze on this gold beer, tidy white head. Palate is smooth and has decent fine carbonation. Decent malt base, a light creamy sweetness. Hops start with a spicy resin followed by marmalade and grapefruit. Bitterish citric peel before a spicy finish and linger. Nicely done, very drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Hazy golden to light amber color; medium sized compact head. The aroma of malt/caramel is dulled by a paper feeling. The body is leaner than expected; malt/caramel flavor with a feeling of paper and vegetables; relatively strong bitterness, with some resins and not much more hop qualities; light sweetness in the end.
Not bad, but it seems unfresh.

Bottle shared in London - many thanks to Daniel. Pours clear gold with a thick, frothy off-white head. Crackery pale malts in the nose, ripening citrus fruits, lemon rind, pale grains. Medium sweet flavor with a bit of alcohol kick, orange rind, pale bread, minerals, oily pine. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Warming and resinous on the finish, more pale bread, pine, ripe citrus. Good stuff.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2006 Draught at BPP: Cloudy copper-amber colour. Big piney, slighlty zesty hop character. Very bitter, like chewing on hops. Piney, with woody back notes. Not much balance here and the hops arenít especially bright - Iíd like a fruitier, livelier mix.

Bottle from Belmont Station. Pours light, translucent copper with a slight beige head. Aroma of resin. Med + body. Flavor is heavy, juicy hop nearly eclipsing a decent caramel backbone. Iím getting significant hop burn. Flavor is strong mix of citrus/resin and the malt. Hop heads should enjoy the bitter, bitter, hoppy finish. I do.
