3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Got a good laugh out of the review below that seemed to give this beer a crap rating simply because itís an IPA.
Now, I may be a little biased, seeing as half my reviews are of APAs/IPAs, but I donít see anything to dislike about this beer. The beer looks great: nice colour, nice creamy cap, great lacing. The nose is probably its best feature: caramel, orange, grapefruit, pine, a bit of flowers. Taste is a really nice mix of sweet and bitter, not overly dry on the finish, but with a nice lingering piney bitterness. Decent creamy, fizzy mouthfeel. More than drinkable.

Can from the LCBO, shared with my Dad. A dark copper color with a thick beige head of foam that has good staying power & lacing. A really good hop aroma: floral fruity hop notes with solid caramel. A balanced flavor of caramel, lemon, resin dankness and pine sap. Quite bitter with a floral lemony finish. Solid

From a twist off top bottle. Smells like big dull Ipa. Look is darker orange brown. Big thick rototilling palate of viscous bitter hoppy BS. Why is everything IPA today? Not everybody who likes beers likes IPA. There you have it.

On tap at Old Chicago. A bright IPA with a citrus nose and taste. Taste also has an ash background which reminds me of burnt pinecones. One sip and I like it - the next sip I donít. I may drink this again, then again I may not.

Smells great with an aroma of strawberries and hops. Pours a deep golden color with little head. Taste is ok, but unbalanced. The hops over power some nice citrus notes. Had on draft at Cappy's Chowder House in Camden, ME.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Maybe I got a bad one, but it was pretty bad. It looked the part as it poured a nice amber with a frothy off white head. Aroma was of pine, and a little skunky. Tasted like an IPA gone bad, with a taste of skunk, sweet corn, pine, citrus, and caramel malts. It had a medium body with low carbonation and zero bitterness. It felt like a lager with hops in it.

Bottled on the road. Nice bitterness after taste, lasts for quite a long time and covers the sweetness of the beer.

Yupppp, tastes just like a monkeyís fist.....fist full of hops, that is! A orangey flaxen pour with a thin white head leaving nice lacing. A bit of a floral hop and honey nose on this primate punch. Big bold citrus and floral hop taste backed by caramel coaching. A good solid mouthfeel and medium carbonation make this a pleasure to pound.
