4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
330ml bottle from Sherbrooke Liquor in YEG, AB. This is far and away the best smelling beer I’ve ever had. Upon opening the bottle before even pouring into an IPA glass I was swimming in a delicious pool of citrus and hop aromas. Poured a deep, hazy orange with a gigantic foam head that’s going the distance here. Huge tropical palate of tastes here. Grapefruits, mangos, oranges, zest, etc. Some grains and malts in the background, the hops have the stage here. This is definitely the best beer I have had in a long time!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 0.33l. Cloudy deep amber color with medium frothy off-white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma is hooooooppy with prevailing grapefruit and pine, some peach notes and mild caramel. Taste starts with rich but light sweet caramel malt, follows by fresh tropical fruitiness, crisp and dry mouthfeel, while finish is fabulously astringent, however still enjoyable. Full body, thick texture and lively carbonation in palate. One of my best APA’s so far...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle pours a hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and caramel with some cereal grains. Taste is a bold grapefruit hop bitterness with a grainy malty sweetness. Medium bodied with good carbonation. A very hoppy APA, but still a quality brew and definitely worth checking out.
