3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted at the brewpub. Pours light cloudy amber. Nice lacing. Smells of sweet grapefruit, tropical citrus. Taste is citrus hop throughout. Finish is bitter dry and almost watery. Not a bad ipa but not a lot going on with the flavour.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bomber. Hazy orange, off-white foamy head settles . Pleasant aroma of grapefruit and tropical fruit. Taste is thin bittersweet grapefruit and citrus and not much else, totally lacking in malt presence. Softer than average carbonation, lighter bodied, moderately hopped. Another mediocre effort from Spinnakers. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear copper body with a nice frothy beige head that had excellent retention. The nose is a mix between citrusy and floral hops with a light caramel and bready malt base. The flavor is pretty restrained on the bitterness with some nice floral and green leafy hops. The malt is fairly light and on the drier side, clean and bready, with a light hint of yeastiness. Lighter bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty decent sessionable IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle pours a light copper color with a finger of white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits with some citrus and grass and light herbal notes. Taste is a balanced blend of citrus, grass and herbal hop bitterness with a light caramel malty sweetness underneath. Light to medium body with average carbonation. A very refreshing and easy to drink IPA that would make a decent session ale for a hop lover.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Tropical fruit, mango, lychee and some grass. Light clear copper with a thick off white head. Orange and malts up front with a resinous bitterness the dominates and ends with a bit of alcohol burn in the throat. Nice beer, but the finish is a bit too much.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Solid tasting beer that I can’t complain too much about. Citrus taste to it. Quite "hoppy" and bitter enough to please my taste buds. 6.8% ABV but easy to drink... Victoria, BC has some pretty damn good beers!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light amber brown color. Minerally, apples and grapefruit nose that is very dry. Big hoppy, full on hop assult, moderate malty backbone. Dry hoppy finish. Somewhat astringent finish. Very big, not subtle. Great IPA. One of the best I’ve had from a Canadian brewery.
