3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. can. Pours a medium, well retained, tiny bubbled, ivory head, with extensive lacing, over a slightly hazy, amber (SRM 7) body......nose is pine, resin, citrus peel from the hops, light toasted malts with bread, biscuit notes, balance to the hops......taste is slightly floral sweet, with pine, resin, grapefruit notes, light allium, mild toasted malts, becoming dry, finishing with a moderate hop bitterness, balance to the hops......mouth feel, medium body, minimal alcohol. low carbonation. This is a pleasant, soft IPA without harsh bitterness, and rather mild malts. It falls well within the style, but is not particularly outstanding. The malts could use a bit of a rework. BJCP 7/3/13/4/6

clear yellow gold pour. Aroma cheesey hops, dirty grass, slight orange. Tastes bitter lettuce. Sorta dry finish brings out the bitterness.

Can shared at the WWWW beer tasting at iphonephan’s. Gold with small white head. Loads of pine hops with some resin and sweet caramel malt. Decent.

Probably one of the best IPA’s I can find year round. Everything in this beer is well balanced. I do not know why this beer is not more sought after, but I am glad I can get it.

Draft pours clear copper with a one finger white head. Nice citrus and pine aroma, grapefruit (but it’s not purple!). Medium dry, hoppy on the finish, citrusy. Resinous and lively. Pretty good.

Can from tavour. Nice thick frothy head. The simcoe really jumps out on this beer. I’m drinking out back while it’s colder outside than in the refrigerator! Flavor is fantastic! Excellent amount of bitterness making this really drinkable for the abv!

this is a very good IPA.... Great 2 finger clingy head... nice lacing... nice clear golden color.
Tropical fruitbowl in the nose... pithy citrus zest and a dollop of pine.
Flavor mirrors the nose and despite the great hop flavors, it never verges into bracing bitterness... just enough pale malt to help the hops coat the palate.... yummy and very drinkable.
Body is a lite/medium with the expected carbonation.

Draft. Pale yellow color, thick lace. Flavors of melon, pineapple and a bit of milk chocolate. This is good Simcoe. Nice but not spectacular.
