2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This IPA poured a medium amber colour with a soapy, bright white, minimal head. Scents include spruce, grass, light caramel and dough. First swig was very hoppy with flavours of caramel, toast, and full grown spruce trees. Finish is bitter with spruce sap lingering...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark orange, cloudy. Not much foam. Hoppy bitterness predominant, with some citrus and pine. OK, but there are better IPAs

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
355ml bottle, less then a week fresh. Pour light cooper with a dense but small off white head that vanish and stay on the outer rim. Malt aroma with notes of green resin. Taste of sweet malt, lots of residual sugar. Not enough hops. Long bitter finish with lots of sweetness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Orange-gold body with good head. (That’s what she said! Ha!) Malty hop aroma, not too bad, not too expert either. Flavour is soft hops and weak hint of malts. Very subdued, preferred the double better. Give this to your friends at the barbeque and keep the strong one behind the bar for yourself.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very light flavoured but quite bitter. Strong in that sense and quite tasty. But everything else is fairly bland.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
An awesome snappy IPA from Tree brewing! Hazy orange pour with a thin head, no lacing. Notes of pine, bitter hops and some lemongrass spiciness almost.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml bottle from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Orange in colour with a long lasting large off-white head, excellent. The aroma is of citrus, some pine, light caramel, some toasted malt. The flavour is of light citrus and pine, earthy and toasty, some caramel sweetness. Bitter mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, good bitterness and hoppy. A nice balanced and highly drinkable IPA.

3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
The HopHead is an extremely hoppy and flavourful beer, reminiscent of many American IPAs. The HopHead has a nice full body and mouthfeel, without the hoppiness being too overpowering. A fine ale all around.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml bottle. (5.6% ABV) Pours a hazy copper with a medium, off-white head that laces. Sweet, hoppy aroma of citrus, caramel malt and grass. Sweet, fruity flavour of grapefruit, caramel malt, mild resin and grass with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy pale to medium amber with a short, short-lived light beige head, spotty lacing. (4/5) Nose is pine, citrus, caramel malt, slightly flowery. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Medium body, moderate to low sustained carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (4/5)
Quite a decent A/IPA. Good balance between hoppiness and maltiness: the malt is quite pronounced, but definitely in a supporting role, and the flavour remains hop-forward. Quite nice. (15/20)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nicky balanced IPA. Light copper in colour, off white head. Plenty of hops but not over powering. 5.7 percent so not too strong that you could not enjoy it as a session beer.
