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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On draft. Pale amber in colour with moderate bitterness. Aromas are of burnt orange peel, bread dough, and caramel. Fairly malty in the mouth with more of that sweet caramel and dough-like qualities. Faint sweet orange peel and resin on the back end. Lengthy and somewhat rough bitterness. Not a favorite.

I thought this was pretty good. Very hoppy but well balanced. Quite piney and green tasting.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a hazy dark orange amber with a small white head. Aroma brings out piney and citrusy hops, with an English hop quality, and a zesty malt base. Flavour brings out lots of piney hops, with secondary notes of citrus and dry crackery malt. Nice and piney. Finishes piney and slightly astringent. Much better than the average ratings suggest.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, shared at the lake with Parksy, May long weekend. Very dark old-penny copper colour. Sweet caramel dominates the nose and the palate, with Del Monte fruit cocktail fruit character. Very little bitterness. A lightweight IPA to say the least; more an amber in my opinion.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber...wow this is one the darkest IPAs I have seen. Aroma has a lot of lychee, with light amounts of orange zest, canned pears, spruce and maybe a dash of Special B. A fair bit of deep crystal chewiness, with a touch of earthy, resiny and slightly orangey hop. I’d call this is an imperial amber - nothing "pale" about this, but a good beer if you know what to expect.
