3.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Purchased six pack of cans at Binnys
Aroma- smells mostly of bread. Not as much hop herbal aromas as i expect to get from an ipa.
Appearance- nice burnt orange with a white lingering head. Very clear
Taste- Tastes mostly of bread and malt. the hops come in next with a subtle piny and citrus flavor then dissipates quickly
Palate- very dry refreshing brew. the bitterness lingers on the palate for quite awhile after tasting.
Overall- not really the type of ipa that i prefer. i prefer an ipa to be more hop flavor based instead of malt based. All personal preferences aside i think this is an awesome beer well worth the six pack of cans i purchased.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Herbal/grassy, piney and slightly flowery aroma, medium yellow/orange with a small white head. The aromas march directly into the flavor along with a nice light candy/honey sweetness that offsets the significant bitterness surprisingly well. That bracing bitterness really kicks in on the tongue and the back of the throat in a good way. Although this is definitely a hop lovers beer, itís quite easy drinking for an IPA at this level.

Very good IPA, smells of hops as soon as I popped the can, the pine/citrus was well balanced and not overbearing.

I had the Hop Notch version from a can, which I consider a bonus. Big citrus notes in the hops, great summer IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden amber with a two-finger creamy head that dissipated quickly bu left very nice lacing. Aromas of citrus - mostly grapefruit - and pine with generous caramel malt for a backbone. Caramel sweetness up front gives way quickly to the sharp hop profile, dominated by the grapefruit with the pine in the background. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, lively carbonation and a crisp bitter finish.
