Bottle from Half Time. Pours dark amber with a foamy beige head. For me the aroma is floral with a hint of resin. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is roasted malt with a lot of hop - floral/citrus/pine? More floral. Finishes nicely bitter. Better than many.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep amber gold pour with a bright white head. Transparent brew. The aroma is spicy and fairly citrusy with just a kiss of light caramel malt contributing to the nose and to the flavour. Lots of sweet toffee and some rich malts. The beer isn’t all that novel, but it’s a very well-executed IPA. A bit of sweet toasted malt along with some lingering fruit. It’s a very quaffable IPA.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very Bitter and salty and not as hoppy as expected. I think I kept it from becoming too cold and flattening the hops effect. I got a head. Maybe it was Premier Gourmet storing it too cold or old. Did not get the hops or citrus flavour expected from this brew or the IPA type.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark copper, almost ruby red with a medium, creamy off-white head. Aroma of hops, malt, fruit, spice, pine. Tastes malty, hoppy, with a fruity, spicy finish. Medium palate. Finishes hoppy, dry, slightly sour, with a slightly "off....metallic" taste at the finish, which I had to deduct for. A good, but not elite, IPA.
