Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouvermcberko (19805) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2015
Light amber color, hazy, with compact head. Solid and smooth IPA, the malt profile is a bit cereally, the hop is a bit resiny. Either a bit old school, or not completely fresh.
But it’s a good beer.
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a clear copper golden with a small white head. Nose of muffled herbal hops and some fungal notes, almost like a British bitter or pale. Flavour sort of confirms this, bringing out fungal notes and herbal hops. There’s a pretty substantial astringency on the finish as well. Not my thing at all.

Amber colour. Woody, slightly grapefruity aroma. Flavour is mainly grapefruit, wood and black currant, with a light underpinning of pale malt sweetness. Ferris (17070) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 26, 2015
Draft - Light grapefruit and some peel. Clear gold with a decent white head. Bitter, sweet and lots of Mandarin with a syrupy note. Not bad. bhensonb (15963) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 27, 2007
Floral hop aroma backed by caramel malt. Something of an apricot color with a white head that filmed while lacing strangely. Medium bodied, almost creamy. Mild carbonation. Floral hop, maybe a bit of citrus, with mild caramel sweetness. As the sweetness goes, the finish is hop, hop, hop. This is great.

22oz bottle. Poured a deeper and cloudy amber color with a larger sized off white head. Aromas of light caramel, floral, and some citrus. Also a little on the earthy side. Tastes of grapefruit, caramel, and citrus. Decent enough balance for an IPA. Lacing left on the glass. jcwattsrugger (12559) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - NOV 8, 2007
