BrokenLeveeCB (1) - woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Purchased six pack of cans at Binnys Aroma- smells mostly of bread. Not as much hop herbal aromas as i expect to get from an ipa. Appearance- nice burnt orange with a white lingering head. Very clear Taste- Tastes mostly of bread and malt. the hops come in next with a subtle piny and citrus flavor then dissipates quickly Palate- very dry refreshing brew. the bitterness lingers on the palate for quite awhile after tasting. Overall- not really the type of ipa that i prefer. i prefer an ipa to be more hop flavor based instead of malt based. All personal preferences aside i think this is an awesome beer well worth the six pack of cans i purchased.

UXO (1883) - CANADA - MAY 23, 2017
Appearance: hazy pale amber with two fingers of fluffy ivory head, good retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: caramel, pine, citrus, grass. (7/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, high bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium slightly oily body, moderate carbonation, off-dry building bitter finish. (4/5) Definitely an old-sk00l IPA, with a pronounced malt backbone vying with the hops for dominance. Definitely not bright or juicy, but very well done regardless. (15/20) 7.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com

Can. An orange beer, murky, a head is medium and blond. Aroma has citrucy fruitness with mandarin, some fructose and tropical notes. Taste has citrus, slight caramelly body, then piney bitterness is nicely strong and that stays in the mouth. Medium bodied. Good and straightforward beer.

Marstonlad (863) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 10, 2017
Can from Alko, Helsinki. Pours cloudy amber with a big, frothy head. The aroma features hops in abundance: citrusy fruitiness with pine and resin; perhaps also a sweetish malty element lurking in the background. Taste is initially light sweet and malty, as indicated by the aroma, and then turns bitter and hoppy; bitterness is definitely above medium but does not reach brutal levels. Hoppy flavours of grapefruit, pine needles and orange sweep aside malty flavours. The palate is medium to full-bodied, average in carbonation. Very tasty, solid work.
