3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(From a month ago... moved from Scullers.... sorry, wrong beer) On draught at Garricks Head, Victoria, Canada. Light amber, white head. Nose is the usual pine and citrus, but a bit lighter than usual, grassy, with a spritzy feel to it that combined with the citrus reminds me of Orangina. Grass and Orangina dominates the flavour. Palate is really smooth. Dry finish.
At least it’s unique.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber, 7.4% ABV (apparently) Mostly clear orange, firm white foam settles and mostly lasts. Aroma of caramel malt and pine hop. Bitter resinous piney hop forward taste, some citrus grapefruit and faint c-malt. Average carbonation, medium-full bodied, more aggressively hopped. C-malt presence increases as it warms, still finishes earthy and bitter. DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)

On tap at St Augustine’s in Vancouver. A pale amber color with a bit of white head. Citrus pine on the nose. Strong bitter pine resinous on the tongue, with a decent malt backup chorus. Bitter finish. Yup. A good’un!

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at jones radiator
A: copper with a finger of white, billowy foam. This falls to a skeleton quilt of the same. Spot lace.
S: English earthy resiny hops. Smells like it’s gOnna be one dimensional. Not much going on here.
T: bitter. Notes of resin. Mostly bitter with biscuit and dry malts. Some astringent accents.
M; medium bodied with moderate carb. Really exceptionally dry making me want a glass of water.
O: I prefer my IPA’s to have more flavor in addition to brutal bitterness. This one misses the mark. Very simple. A dry, oppressive gospel.
Serving type: on-tap

650 ml bottle. Pours an amber color with light head. Aromas of grass, citrus, and toast. Flavors of lemongrass, pine, and toasted malts over-ridden by a very strong bitter finish. Seems to be very different from the other ratings...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - Sweet fruity hops with a great malty caramel backbone. Clear gold with a rich off white head. Very sweet, but bitterness balances well. Like candy and hops, very nice.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear dull gold with a thin white head and some lace. Nice malty aroma, light spice, some skunk. Boozy, thin body but good spicy hop bite. Crisp with decent carbonation. A bit unbalanced, but tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus hop and earthy aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. Very good brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crisp copper coloured body with a one centimetre tall tan head with a lot of movement in the body - nice. Aroma of bread, yeast, grassy and herbal hops and a decent amount of malt. Medium-bodied; Assertive resinous and medicinal hop flavours with a lot of alpha acids and bitterness, some metallic twang going on at the end and a deep malty finish. Aftertaste shows a good hop bite with a pungent kick of alcohol and metal and a little malt. Overall, a nice IPA with perhaps more of a metal and bitter flavour than hoppy, but good none-the-less. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Bottleworks in Seattle, Washington on 11-January-2013 for US$4.99 sampled at home in [the real] Washington on 19-February-2013.
