2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not a very good IPA. The malts and the hops clash terribly, big let down on this beer. Head is good, two finger. Nice copper color, and pretty nice lacing. The biggest let down is just the taste. This beer is just a sub-standard IPA all around. It’s almost not an IPA, although I’m not sure what I would call it. Starts off with a strong malty taste then abruptly ends and finishes with a gross, grasses, moldy hop taste. FAIL Shipyard.

Can. Orange pour with some head. Herbal and grassy aromas. Citrus, herbal and grassy hop flavors. Not as bad as expected.

375ML split 2 ways. dark amber red, 1 finger off white head. smells like most standard IPAs. Pine, some blue cheese and bitter orange peel. Decent mouthfeel, it has a very nice sweet grapefruit taste and some blueberry. Cream like finish. Bland but overall, a solid IPA.

Pours an amber from a tap, good fruity piney Cascade aroma, classic bitterness with a little fruity sweetness as well. Good beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A shiny red can bought at the SAQ. Pours a clear strong golden (light copper?) with a small white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of caramel and resin, not too fragrant but still not too bad. Taste is moderately sweet and bitter, lightly grainy. Hop flavors are a bit earthy, a bit piny. Not that exciting, really. Body is medium, carbonation moderately and mouthfeel slightly oily. Overall your standard "old style" IPA, not that good but I’m glad the SAQ is adding to their beer offering.

2.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From the tap the aroma is sharp but very light ale hard to capture the aroma fully in a pint glass, the pour is clear and a dark amber to almost brown, taste is sharp very hoppy and bitter, there is a grapefruit hint to the finish but only the sour of the grapefruit no distinguishable sweetness, over a strong ipa but a funky after flavor

12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a darker, hazy copper with a white head of foam that sticks around. The aroma has notes of crackers, pine, green tea. The taste is moderately bitter with a drying finish. Medium body and medium carbonation. Solid IPA.

35 cl bottle. Dark orange color, cloudy, thick creamy offwhite head. Hoppy nose, tingy. Aroma of citrus and caramel malts with resin hops, ginger, roots, earthy yeast and tobacco. Strong bitter taste, long bitter dry finish, raw and earthy.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours a clear copper with a frothy and persistent off white head. Epic head and lacing! Aroma is pleasant floral, more floral than citrus. The taste is good bitter. Hoppy, but again, not real citrusy. Long bitter finish. Good beer!

Bottle from ABC. Pours a dark amber with a thin to medium white head. Lacing is minimal. Aromas are grass, pine, citrus. Taste follows suit but also with some vague malts - mostly bread. Mouthful is surprisingly full with a really oily texture and a long finish. Acquire.
