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.

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.

Pours clear golden to amber color with a minimal head. Aroma ist mainly floral and pine, with a hint of citrus. Quite herby taste with a nice maltiness and a narrow, short lasting bitterness. A bit to herby for my taste, but otherwise ok.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The color was orangey amber with a foamy off white head. Its head slowly fades to just a thin covering of bubbles. Hops attack the nose with spruce pine, resin and light citrusy hop aromas. The flavor hits your tongue with bold piney and citrusy hop flavors. Malt flavor lies underneath and offers some balance with a mildly sweet and bready tone. The palate has a slightly oily smooth texture with a medium body and soft carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ambré claire dorée, limpide. Mousse beige assez persistante. Carbonation moyenne.
Goût houblonné frais, citrique. Fort goût de malt toasté rallongeant la fin de bouche. Fin de bouche sèche et grande amertume persistante.
IPA atypique, de part sa clarté-limpidité, et de par son fort goût de malts.
