4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from bottle. White head that almost goes away. Smells fruity, gentle american hops. Taste is bitter, mild caramel and quite gentle for an imperial IPA. All in all, quite good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared bottle with Mad Dog Helsdon at the Only Cafe during the Toronto Rate Beer Sobriety Memorial night. Pours dark & sharp. A chewy bubblegum style IPA. More perfume on the hops than Cougar Nite at the local singles bar. Pretty sure this was the final nail in the following day’s hangover.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drank at the East Meets West and Drinks Too Much event at the Only. Split a bottle with the vociferous and astute Mr. Freaky_tiki. I usually just ogle the amazing bottle beer selection at the Only while drinking too many of what’s on tap.
Pours a cloudy red-orange (keeping the questionable bar lighting in mind.) Offers a creamy malt nose with a resin hoppiness. The taste has some nice caramel flavors but is dominated by a resin and perfume hops, with some bittering that carries though to the aftertaste. No too bad.

On tap at St Veronus. Opaque orange/brown bodybwith thick bubbly off white head, quickly disapating leaving spotty lacing. Strong pine notes, grapefruit, grass, orange zest. Elevated alcohol and it presents a subtle warmth on the finish, very well integrated.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Long lasting foam. Weak hop aroma. Lack of taste. Aftertaste rather bitter. Not a bad beer but you can find better for an IPA
