3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a subdued west-coast IPA. It is plenty floral and hoppy, but not overly aggressive as many have come to expect from this style. It is enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can: Clear light golden pour with a finger of creamy off-white head. Lots of sticky lacing throughout. Fresh aroma, citrus and lightly floral. Semi-sweet. Good hop flavors, more citrus and some tropical fruit. Nice mild malty backbone. Balance is good, bitterness is moderate, but flavorful. This is nicely done.

Thin white foamy head atop a light orange body. Nose of pine cones. Flavour of resiny hop cones with undertones of perfume. Very tasty. Purchased at Penny Farthing in Oak Bay.

12 oz can. 6 pack of them enjoyed over a couple days to be exact. Pours a clear golden color with a patchy fizz head. Mellow hops and grainy aroma. Just a delicious IPA. Really easy to drink a 6 pack of this. Nice hoppy finish. Great stuff.

Very nice IPA. Big citrus and pine on the nose. Nice balance and by no means is this a Hop bomb of an IPA. Subtle, but creamy mouthfeel and nice bitterness in the finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
CAN. Pours a burnished golden with amber mid-tones, average head, good lacing. There’s a very complex hop aroma profile that borders between slightly medicinal, herbal, dank, yet also shows some berry, citrus, a little bit of minty woodiness, and peach-like stone fruit. There’s a golden malty aroma as well, just slightly doughy. It’s got a bright flavor, mid-palate malt sweetness, and smooth end-palate bittering. Finishes dry and leaves a malt-ester aftertaste more than that of the hops. Very good beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from can to glass. Golden hue with fizzy white head that dissipated to a thick ring. Decent lacing. Aroma is mango, orange peel, grapefruit, faint pine, grassy. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet initially followed by a strong hop bitterness that dominates through the finish. Overall this is a decent IPA.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Strong hop aroma and subtle hop flavor. High alcohol content yet weak tasting. This beer has some identity problems.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
22 oz bottle from Fred Meyer’s in Beaverton, OR. Crystal clear pour. Aroma is sweet, floral, piney, resinous, and a bit fruity, with hints of caramel and grass. Amazing! Perfect crisp mouthfeel with a gentle and balanced bitter bite in the finish. Perfectly sweet and bitter from start to finish. One of the best non-Imperial IPA on the market, IMO. Damn, these guys can brew.
