3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2014 Bottle thanks to Wittales in the local 3.14 swap. Pours a chill hazed golden orange with thin lacy off-white head that sticks nicely. Aroma is big on the resinous citrus and pine of the west coast hops. Taste follows, a hint of malty back end, bittersweet finish. Mild carbonation, balanced and easy to drink, solid west coast IPA.

Bottle from Darbyís Liquor Store, Vancouver
Hazy golden color.The fruity hops aroma reaches you when the beer is still in the bottle. The mouthfeel is lean and rather dry; the malt flavor has toffee accents; the hopping is resiny, oily, piney, and fruity (with a touch of tropical fruits as well).
Very nice. I would like to drink it fresh from tap.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A- pours a dark gold with a finger of off white head and light retention.
S- lemon zest, soap, grass, jasmine tea, thyme, green pepper, light pine resin, biscuits and caramel. Fairly standard but well proportioned.
M- light to medium tacky body with a light to medium malty palate. Mild carbonation.
T- dry and sweet grasses plus pepper up front. Lemon, soap, tea, snap peas, green peppers follow. Grapefruit, muddled citrus, bitter grasses and mineral water complete the sustained ending. Oddly not much malt in the taste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Last half of last beer and last drop of energy -- earthy malts, zip, pine, unsweetened gf, peach, pepper. Tastes and smells really good but each bottle seemed a bit underwhelming - which is fine but I guess I wanted more moreness. Solid beer, crazy price. 1AM reviews just donít have the same bite they used to.
