fiulijn (15227) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2012
2012-07-23, bottle at Hops, New Westminster, 5-4-6-2-10= 27
Amber color, small head. Aroma of paper and some cereals. Some caramel flavor, hard, with quite strong bitterness. Difficult to digest. Headacher.

2012-07-22, bottle at Zest Japanese restaurant on 16th Street, Vancouver, 6-3-6-2-11=28
Amber color, small head, served in a frosted glass. The aroma is basically caramel, and the flavor too, the caramel providing some of the bitterness as well; hard bitterness, leading to a final not too pleasant.
A bit in the Alexander Keith style.

CapFlu (4611) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2012
(Draft) Sampled at the 2011 Great Canadian Beer Festival on September 9, 2011. In a town dominated by over the top hops, this IPA is very much underwhelming. Some bitterness through the finish but all in all trend-scooping to little results.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2011
330mL bottle, pours hazy golden orange. Aroma of grassy and herbal hops, with a little bit of grapefruit and citrus. Grassy hops also dominate the flavour profile, with some herbal notes and biscuity malts. Not too great.

2.7
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 12/20
Crit (3393) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 26, 2011
Hazy amber,small beige head.Light malt nose and profile with a medium hop finish. Drinkable, but not memorable
