4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A very nice IPA, especially for western Canada, where sweet beers rule along with lifeless Macrobrews.
Aroma: nice and hoppy usually floral but not overwhelming
Appearence: a light amber and clear
Flavor: Hoppy,light floral and citrus (grapefruit like)
Palate: medium to full bodied, leaves you very satisfied. If you like Pac-Northwest beers this is a good choice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft pint at the brewery taproom; Chestnut amber with a solid wall of foam on top. Fruity and velvety with a solid hop bitterness and firm malt foundation. Excellent beer in the English vein, me thinks. Cheerio! (#2870, 5/13/2007)

Foggy orange pour with live yeast sediment. Hoppy aroma. Fat hoppy taste upfront. Sweet hops balance out the whole taste. Finish is solid and doesn’t dry out. Very good!

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A good ipa brewed close to home. A English style ipa that I like even though I’m a bigger fan of the American style. A good Carmel malt background balances out this ipa that has a nice dark brown color. I enjoyed this brew and will again for that price

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It is quite hoppy but also has a good amount of caramel malt and a smooth body to make it a well balanced IPA. Not as aggressive as PNW IPA, but the caramel malt add a freshing new twist.

Bottled. Hoppy and peppermint aroma. Bronze hue with a small frothy head. Very hoppy with some peppermint and caramel/toffee notes and hints of apples. Well laced. A balanced and enjoyable IPA.

Hazy light amber color, creamy head. Good american hops aroma, not too strong, with some caramel and a light cheesy touch (interesting). Good caramel flavor, strong bitterness, dry resins or hop oils too, and very light cheesy touch too. Very pleasant.

Amber color. Light fruity hop aroma. It has some caramel flavor, light sweetness (I would like more), strong bitterness, with some nice hop oils, and strong final. Simple but pleasant.

1L brown bottle with "grolsch style" closure. Dark gold beer with a creamy persistent white head. Earthy and hoppy (light pine and lemons) aroma. Nice malt hop balance, some caramel malt sweetness, slight bitterness in the finish.
