2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle pours hazy amber with small head. Nose is malty orange peel and faint lemony pine. Taste is bready malt, bitter, some lemon. Finish is bitter bready malt with some faint lemon citrus. Smells hoppier than it tastes, mostly just bitter. OK, Iíve had worse.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an orangey-copper with a 2 finger sticky cap. Aroma is hoptacular - citrus-pine-earthy with fruits and a big whaft of caramalt. Flavor follows aroma with the big west coast hopping slightly out-pacing the malt delivery up front, then it goes dry and increasingly bitter in the finish. A hoppy but easy drinking west coast- styled IPA.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
473ml can. Pours a hazy rose tinged pale orange with a beige head. Heavy aromas of grapefruit, with strong green tea notes, caramel, and a very light aroma of what reminds me of paint thinner. As for taste, big tropical fruit up front with some resinous notes, that lead into a very harsh bitterness, and alcohol burn that ends the beer with lemon candy, and a long bitter citrus pith finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
471ml can from the LCBO Pours a deep hazy amber with a finger width off white head. Nose is heavy pine with quite a pit of fruit: citrus and pear and something else. Quite bitter to start with some balanced malt sweetness in the middle and a lingering bitter finish. Quite like the level of bitterness, but there is an underlying metallic tang that distracts. Mouth is quite soft with soft carbonation. Interesting...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a cloudy orange-copper with a large lasting foamy off-white head. Some lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruity and resiny hops, bready malt, light spices and alcohol. Flavourís the same, with fruity hops, spices, bready malt, a bit of alcohol and a hint of wood. Long bitter finish. Average bodied. Not great but pretty good.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slightly hazy amber pour, with a medium white head. Some weird sweet ctrus aromas, mixed with wet cardboard. Weird bitter lemon, and dried hay. Good god this is odd. Low carb, soft mouth feel. Finish lacks the sweetness that was in the aroma. Its quite bitter, with a big citrus pithy finish. This is an odd ball ipa. The hops are there seem to have mingled with odd off flavors.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from the LCBO. Slightly hazy golden-copper with a small white head. Really unique hop profile in the aroma and flavour - oddly dank, but also fruity, with mango and blackcurrant notes. A bit of fermented apple character as well. Caramel-leaning malt supports. Finish is long and fruity, some slightly tart citrus notes and more of the blackcurrant. Not quite sure what to make of this...
