3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer has a promising delicious smell of fruity hops. The taste delivers, fruity, bitter and with a nice malty backbone with a touch of caramel. Balanced and tasty.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale golden double india pale ale in the american tradition with a big hoppy character, citric and spicy notes. What makes the difference in their beers is the softness of the body.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a snifter. Pours slightly hazy golden with a small white head that fades quickly, leaving a moderate amount of fine lace. The nose has notes of pineapple, citrus, straw and subtle pepper, along with pale malts. The flavour is moderately sweet up front, with notes of honey, biscuity pale malts and tropical fruit. It acquires a medium hoppy bitterness through the middle with citrus, resin and tropical fruit notes coming through. It closes out with a long bitter-sweet finish. On the palate it is medium in full with a syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a very sweet IPA. The hops are nice, but the malts are almost cloyingly sweet. 2014-07-04
