3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma - Without having anything too special about it, this beer smells like a typical, quality East-Coast American IPA. Pine, flowers, caramel, and a hint of citrus.
Appearance - The beer pours a clear golden/light copper body, with a frothy white head. The lacing is quite nice, and the head retention is very solid.
Taste - This is a very solid IPA! Starts out with a very impressive hop bite, full of floral and citrus notes. A moderate sweetness follows right after, bringing a pleasant caramel feel to your palate. The finish is slightly bready, bitter, yet sweet. Very proper IPA! After a while you may even taste a hint of vanilla (not sure what causes that, though)!
Palate - Light-to-medium bodied, with a slight syrupness to it.
Overall - This is a solid sessionable IPA. Goes down smoothly, with a good balance between drinkability, bitterness, and flavour.

355ml bottle. Enjoyed a bottle on my recent trip to Toronto. Pours a minimal size head and has a pale copper appearance. Huge citrus aromas, very hoppy. Light malts. Flavours are of bitter hops, cascade variety, inoffensive just lots of it, very citrusy. Very light roasted malts. Hint of Grapefruit on the finish. Nice dirty lacing. Creamy mouthfeel. Some bitterness on the palate. Pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a light copper with a thin white head that leaves lacing down the glass. Aroma is dominated by pine, with some floral and herbal notes in the background. Moderate sweetness up front with a hint of caramel, followed by a solid, but very well balanced bitterness. Piney, citrus and floral hop flavors. Lightly carbonated with a smooth mouthfeel. A sweeter, but balanced IPA that is quite drinkable.

Taste is pine, malt bitterness, grass, floral, not much tropical fruit. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light carbonation, bitter malt and pine aftertaste. Overall, meh. A wee bit too much malt.

A nice bitter, hoppy, drier version of IPA. One of the best. Only drawback is high alcohol.

Bottle - Very typical IPA style beer. Balanced hops and malt. Dry on the palate. I get citrus and grass flavors. Nothing very unique but a solid drinkable IPA.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Good hoppy/sweet aroma. Light colored with a huge white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Tastes great. Just enough hop bitterness, and that comes through at the very end of each taste. The palate is thick for the style - not watery, very well done
