3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
341 ml bottle purchased singly from Sobeys Liquor and served in a footed pilsner glass. Pours an attractive, clear golden amber with light carbonation and two fingers of light tan, well-retained head that leaves very nice webs of lacing. Aroma is bright and fresh floral, piney hops, with banana and other tropical fragrances, and a light maltiness. The flowery and tropical natures carry through in the flavor, with a small level of menthol-like cooling from the pine (the Ice Fog in the name, perhaps), and the malt rides along in the middle. Mouthfeel has enough weight and is a little dry as the fresh hops linger a moment. Very refreshing and a well-done pale ale altogether.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I malty ipa with subdued hop bitterness. A very enjoyable beer but I do prefer more of an American ipa with more up front hop flavour.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep golden pour with a white head. The nose is lightly hoppy with a kiss of grapefruity citrus character. A little bit of light yeast-derived fruitiness as well. Earthy hop bitterness on the finish. Moderately bitter but the balance is decent. A touch of light caramel mid-palate that adds some sweetness. As it warms up the bitterness picks up quite a bit. It’s pretty tasty stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 5.4%. Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hoppy overtones, not citrusy, but earthy, floral. Taste is more of the same, dry hops and roast malts dominating the flavour, with a hint of sweetness. Definitely a british style IPA, not cascadey in the sli Finish is dry, but balanced and satisfying. Delicious.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Easy drinking IPA. Aroma of hops, grass, and citrus. Lacing is minimal. Pour is a light copperish gold with a small whitish head. Taste is hoppy and grassy. Overall, the hops are not overpowering. Slightly unpleasant aftertaste of bitterness. Overall, great beer. I will buy again if I can find it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a medium amber, slightly hazy, with a thin white disappearing head. Tastes of hops... slightly bitter, but lots of aromatic and flavoring type hops. Tones of grass, pine, and citrus. Grassy hop aftertaste. Pretty good!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
341ml bottle pours a golden color with 2 fingers of white head that settles down leaving some thin lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is light cereal grains and pleasing floral hops. Taste is well balanced between the malty sweetness and hop bitterness. This is not a hop bomb, but an easy drinking IPA that will satisfy most but the true hop-heads.

Pours darkish amber, some head. Aromas are grainy malt with just a hint of caramel/treacle. Hops make their presence known in a floral, fruity, peachy mix. Bitterness/sweetness balance out in a mild bitter finish. Pleasant, easy to drink.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Very well balanced with a good amount of malt. Would have enjoyed a bit more bite from an IPA but I’m just quibbling. Medium body with soft carbonation. Long finish with some bitterness at the end. Overall pretty good.
