3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Draught sample at Brydens, Toronto, Sept 21 2012) Poured a hazy pale orange with coppery hints and an average creamy white head, moderate lacing. Aroma of citrus rind, leafy hops, bit of tropical fruit, hints of caramel sweetness. Flavour initially sweet fruits and malts with some leafy bitterness, not too caramel-heavy. Bitterness increases but still moderate towards the finish, a bit peppery at the end. Body is medium, carbonation very soft. Well-balanced, great aromatics, very sippable IPA indeed!

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2012 On tap. Cloudy orange, white head. Elderflower, pineapple, orange pekoe, a little caramel on the aroma. Malty. A little bready and sweet. Medium finish. Not complex or mind blowing but great balance. Really nice and sessionable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Volo, August 24. Pours a hazy orange-copper with a long-lasting average size creamy white head. Lots of lacing on the glass. Lovely, big hoppy aroma, lots of leafy hops backed by sweet fruit and malt. Nice and hoppy flavour, with leafy and citrusy hops, and quite the bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Great stuff, and the nitro for a hoppy beer is interesting indeed.
