3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle from IPB.
Appearance : Clear pale amber medium head. Some lacing.
Aroma : Resinous hops with citrusy notes. Nice malt. Piny and coniferous. Some honey.
Taste : Nice malty profile with honey on the finish. Piny and citrusy hops with some resinous notes. Finish fairly bitter and a bit resinous.
Overall : Quite enjoyable and drinkable but not as elegant as Kipling or Wild Swan. Still very well made and it was probably better

Meh, really doesn’t do it for me. Pours a straw yellow with a thin white sticky head. The aroma is old cupboard, straw, and a touch of floral hops. The flavour, a rough kind of bitter, straw, soap, maybe I got an off batch, really don’t understand the 3.56 rating. Just not very good in my opinion.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy golden orange with a thick, white, head. Nose is orange, peach, lemon peel, floral hops, and a hint of woodiness. Mouth feel is medium, with a pronounced creaminess and high carbonation. Taste-wise, we have biscuity malt, lemonade, resinous hops, grapefruit, and some grassy notes. Finishes long and slightly dry, leaving bitter hops, lemon and some oak. Not particularly aggressive with the hoppiness. A fresh, easy-drinking IPA that’s perfect for the summer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ipa con aspecto de lager bastante carbonatada. Típica Ipa inglesa pero con notas maltosas y buena dosis de lúpulo. Final al seco y amargo. Recomendable

color dorado y espuma blanca y persistente. bastante carbonatada en un primer monento el aspecto puede recordar a una pils. aroma predominante los lupulos, tanto carbonico acentua el aroma y sabor a lupulo. el sabor sigue una linea lupolizada de principio a fin escondiendo otros matices con un final seco y citrico

500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours bright pale golden in colour, with nice big frothy white head, lots of lacing. Aroma is English earthy hops, taste is weighted to hops, but this is bitter resin hops. Some biscuity malt. Pretty good, hope to get more beers from Thornbridge!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2012 (Sample from 50 cl bottle at CBF) Pours a clear golden with little white head and lace. Aroma is resiny hoppy. Oily texture with a full body, medium carbonation and a slightly sweet, malty finish. Taste is mildly bitter ith sweetness. Okay but I prefer hops that are more tropical fruit and less leafy.
