Medium sized tan head with fair retention and lace. Murky, copper hued ale.Nose is lightly soured, lil grainy, musty. Body is almost medium, spritzy carbonation, lil oily. Some spicey hop flavors with a sour maltyness, lightly phenolic, bad. Funky, bandaidy finish. Should know better.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml Bottle: Gushed and produced a massive head. Aroma of malt, caramel, hops, leaves, and some nuts. Poured orange in color with a huge, creamy, fluffy, frothy, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Lightly sparkling. Full of small, medium, and large-sized particles throughout. Flavor is light to medium sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of malt, hops, nuts, leaves, and honey. Medium body. Dry, chalky texture. Average carbonation. Malty, honey finish. Not much of an IPA.

Tap at Beervana. Average ipa. Nothing that really jumps out at me. Bit of a let down considering the APA is very good

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This has a fruity and complex aroma, signs that this is an EIPA-style. The flavor is malty and balanced in the hops with a dry finish. Donít get me wrong, it was good, just that it doesnít stand up to the best IPAs, its closer to an ESB.

Fruity toffee butterscotch honey nose with some perfumy flowery hops, toasty biscuity sweet malt, medium body, grassy earthy spicy hop flavour, minerally bitterness. More of an ESB for my taste but very enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (BB Sep 2010).
Head is initially large, frothy, rocky, off-white, mostly lasting.
Body is hazy medium to dark amber, bottle conditioned.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (apricot, flowers), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with light notes of mandarin orange, dried mango, cinnamon, black tea, cardboard.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation.
As with the Pilsner, another old sample...but once again, one that has not suffered as a result. Just a very small bit of cardboardy oxidation, the rest is beautiful. Gotta love bottle conditioning. Anyways, itís really tropical-fruity.and juicy. Great stuff that Iíd love to try fresh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aromas are of grassiness, orangeflower and fruitleather. My Aunty Kim makes a wonderful apple and blackboy peach fruitleather. It poured the colour of mandarin peel and a head that subsided with a sigh after a few minutes, leavingvery little lacing.
Upon tasting there is a twist of citrusy bitterness and a silky malt character that lingers underneath the initial hoppy shock. This beer is sweet, without being cloying, tart without being overpowering. This is balance and marks this beer as a good session bitter.
Not bad at all.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle into my De Struise glass...Lots of carbonation, pours with at least three fingers of head, its tope good retention only so-so lacing. The beer itself is a dark and clear orange...The aroma is really light, malt caramel, a little grass, only a faint aroma of hops. It reminds you of "greeb" kind of refreshing...Taste is ok, but not at all an ipa. A very malty ipa, bread, pineapple, light hop for a split second at the end. Easy to drink just boring.

Pours an orange amber with biscuit notes the drive into a deper maltiness. You get light bitterness of the hops on the late palate and finish.
