3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
355 ml bottle from the LCBO. Bottled 3.5 months ago (04/07/14). Pours a clear golden orange with thin soapy white head. Smells weak, peppery hops, some honey, caramel malt. Tastes malty, biscuit, toasted malt, with some herbal and fruitiness to it. Mild bitterness. Slight alcohol burn on this. Strikes me as more of a boozy English style IPA. I was expecting West Coast style. Not a bad beer, but not too impressive.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy, cloudy, amber to the orange. Bit of pine aroma, taste’s of pine needles redolent of the adirondaks and summer evenings. Smooth drinking, hide’s the alcohol well, all around competent, not special.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A good full bodied beer but drinks more to a thinner side, maybe due to warm up.
This is a very good tasting beer that also hides it’s alcohol warming impact very nicely.
When I take a big gulp of this golden brew I get a well balanced taste of malts and hops. THe hops are citrusy and floral, the malts are rich and support the hops greatly.
Interesting that not alot of hops aroma is present, but there is agood bit of malt sweetness. Completely opposite to the taste.
Some IPA’s you can smell the hops a mile away.
Southern Tier IPA pours a bit hazy. A nice orange/amber color. Desent frothy white head, fading.
A very good IPA that isn’t over powering.
That means drinkability

Botella de 33 cl en el lúpulo en octubre de 2012. Ipa con un cuerpo de 7.3 vol, fácil de beber aunque con algunos toques toscos y lúpulos herbáceos, algo cítricos que se podían suavizar un poco mas. Podía estar mejor.

Bottle bought at the LCBO on Queen’s Quay in Toronto/Canada. Overall a good IPA. A bit too much malt and less hops aroma and flavor for my taste. More bitter hops and less exotic citrus hops. I definitely prefer the Headstock IPA by Nickelbrook. This one has an bit higher alcohol finish and less the hops or malt flavor.

Bottle. Clear dark gold with a thin white head. Aroma is floral with rich caramel notes. Taste follows and adds light bitterness and citrus. Prominent booziness. Crisp mouthfeel. Ok.
