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.

2.9 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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating #995 - February 18, 2014 - $7.29 CAD for a 650ml bomber from Coop. Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with pine/lemon overtones. Taste is more of the same, dry hops and cakey malts dominating the flavour. Very much an english style PA but still very tasty.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours slightly hazy, dark amber, with a dirty off-white head. Aroma of grassy hops, butter, pine. Taste of toffee caramel, light to medium sweet, medium bitter. Soft carbonation, bitter, slightly metallic finish. Overall a decent beer, quite the thirst quencher. More of a British style IPA with high bitterness.

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 - it’s 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 beer’s advantage, and make it quite sessionable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
