Poured from a 12 oz can. Appearance is dark and cloudy honey color. Aroma is citrus, sweet caramel, and biscuits. Taste is a fruity IPA, oranges and grapefruit. Palate is smooth and resin-y. Overall, this is a very quality IPA without inflated prices.

Aroma of grass, malt sweetness and hops. Taste is all of the above with no bitterness in the aftertaste. Just enough hops in the flavor.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours red-copper with a thinning head. Heavy hop, spruce, and resin aroma. Less citrus and tropical than many American IPAs. First sip was all hops and pine, a little on the boozy side. Strong hoppy bitterness, taste is solid but to me there was little in the way of complexity or change. I didnít dislike it all, but it wasnít my favorite offering of the night either.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle purchased at Haskells in Maple Grove and consumed with commonshawn. Deep golden color with a burnt orange lean. Nice half finger of head that lingers for a bit. Aroma is pretty stock standard IPA fare with some citrus notes and a pine characteristic. Interesting to consume as the flavor isnít really upfront...hits you towards the end of the sip and at the back of the tongue. Bitterness comes through and an almost malty, bready quality prevails. Almost IPA bread in a way. Coats the mouth with a oily, sticky feeling. Strikes me as a unique and enjoyable offering.

Bottle from Haskells with commonmac. Copper with frothy white head. Grain and some hop aroma. Hoppy a bit but thinner than expected. A little metallic. Flavor ends quickly. Some resin. Tastes better as it warms. Wanted more from this. Still decent.

Bottle. Deep gold with a sticky off white head. Ripe pineapple, caramel, little citronella and bread. Pineapple sweetness with a soapy bitterness. Heavier side of medium with a fizzy, soapy water feel.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours reddish gold with a massive fluffy white head with sticky, lacy cling. Aroma of pine and sweet grapefruit. Flavors are sweet malt; stone fruit; caramel; cut grass; and resiny, herbal hops. Bitter citrus finish. Slightly oily mouthfeel, but otherwise very clean for such a big beer. The hops are very assertive, but not overdone. This is really very nice.
