4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy, dark amber pour. Fading head. Floral aromas. soft carbonation.
Closing my eyes, I can visualize myself drifting into a lush green forest... the forest floor is damp and the trees are dripping sap... little hop fairies are fluttering around me... head shake
The beer seems to bind with your saliva creating an incredible sort of resin... I feel like I could blow bubbles with it. Starts sweet on the palate with a lengthy bitter finish... Did I mention the lengthy finish... I feel like I might wake up with the resin stuck to my tongue. However, the aforementioned is indeed enjoyable. Certainly a sessionable IPA. Wish it was more readily available in my neck of the woods.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy dark orange-amber with a good sized rocky head. Aroma starts with a good hit of caramel malt and candied orange peel, followed by a slightly soapy floral note and some mellow pine. Flavour is well balanced, with substantial caramel malt playing well with hops that start with sweet citrus and end with a lingering pine resin & grapefruit juice bitterness. Not a completely typical North American IPA - itís a bit darker, a bit lower in alcohol, and is more balanced than the usual - but all of those (especially the last two) play to the beerís advantage, and make it quite sessionable.

650ml brown bottle. 5.6% abv on the label. Hazy amber in the glass. Small white head on top that fades to a ring. Decent rings of lace. Nose has a caramel base, then some hops - orangey, a little spice and some leafy notes. Taste has caramel malts, citrusy and pine hops with a bit of spice. Piney aftertaste, bitterness is moderate. Body is light, mild carbonation. A bit malt heavy but not too bad.

Bomber, courtesy of Eyrish. Opaque orange brown, foamy tan head settles and fades. Caramel malt, floral hop aroma. Piney resinous fruity hop taste initially, gradually overshadowed by intense singed caramel/toffee malts, some saltiness. Soft carbonation, medium-full body, well hopped. Piney citrus and malty sweetness at the end, slightly dry bitter finish. A different WC IPA. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep amber pour with an off-white head. Iím not getting too much on the nose, but seems to be some citrus and a little malt sweetness. Medium bodied. Thereís a nice balance of biscuity malts and piney/lemony hops at first, and then the hops really come forward and lingers on the finish. Not bad.
