Bottle 120114. From notes.

A - Golden pour with a mildly hazy body. Good carbonation. Fluffy two finger white head left great lace rings and retention.

S - Nice sweet fruits, biscuity malt, honey, some mild pine.

T - Sweet fruit again, more grain, really restrained. Quite sweet with a weird metallic and rotten fruit component. Not the most pleasant flavour.

M - Not that bitter but it's there. Good carbonation, medium to full body.

O/D - This didn't strike me as an IPA. The hop character didn't seem like much and it came off sorta lagery. Not sure what happened but it's simply not good enough for these guys, especially these days for an IPA.

Nice light head - almost meringue-like.
Takes about a minute to settle, but leaves a nice lacing that stays.

Aroma is woodsy - not overly hoppy but still quite pleasant and familiar.

Mouthfeel is light, a bit weak, still leaves a slight bitterness.
Medium body, cloudy.

For a strong ale, it's very easy (maybe too easy?) to drink, but not overly memorable.
Definitely would make a very nice summer patio AIPA.

On tap at Sydney's Local Taphouse Canadian SpecTapular.

Nice orange/amber colour, with a filmy but solid enough white head that leaves some English ale style lacing. Lots of carbonation. Not bad.

Lots of butterscotch on the nose, with a weird cinnamon character coming through - some washed out hop notes that give a vaguely English twist to the aroma. Quite English in style overall. Eh.

Taste is also quite English - with notable sweet malts only partially alleviated by the straight vector of cleansing hops. Finish is clean at least, but it's certainly missing some intensity. Mouthfeel clear and smooth.

Eh, it's drinkable enough. I certainly feel it leans towards the English style than the American style -- and it's just not that interesting.

Looks quite good. Hazy gold, big soft head. Settles to a thin cap and leaves lots of lace along the way. Quite a handsome beer.

Fairly ordinary after that. Subdued fruitiness in the nose. Soft mouth feel with gentle bitterness and a hint of sourness. Pithy citrus, some wood. Easy enough to drink, but nothing really memorable.

Pours a mostly orange colour, gilded edges. Head is beautiful but sinks after a while, leaving some extremely pleasant lace behind. Clear body, very slow carbonation running up the glass. Pretty nice.

Good aroma. Lots of tangy, fruity, sherbet notes to those hops. Citrus and pineapple with rosewater, lychee, and nectar, pretty sweet overall with big vanilla and a hint of cherry as well. Maybe too sweet, but overall good.

Taste is also quite tangy but also very sweet. Lots of malt, with vanilla notes, hints of rosewater and pineapple sherbet. Doesn't quite have enough bitterness to clean up, although the bitter flavour is prominent at the back, woody and phenolic in essence. Definitely lacking balance, with the sweetness dominating until the very last gasp, and complexity is all over the place. I like my IPA profiles to go Sweet > Hoppy > Bitter and this just muddles around the three throughout the palate. If I were to choose one flavour I'd like to dominate it would be hops. In this case it's sweet, so am not hugely impressed.

Feel is decent, not a lot of body to it but it's OK.

Not too bad overall, a little sweet for my taste but it's drinkable.

600ml bottle from March Omni QC for 7$ taxes in

Appearance - Clear golden/amber with an above average size fizzy off-white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for around 3-4 minutes.

Smell - Hops, malts, grapefruit, grassy notes

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste caramel, malts, and hops. There is also some grapefruit, lemon zest and some grassy/grainy notes. It ends with a malty slightly astringent dry hop aftertaste.

Overall – More of a lager with a dry hop aftertaste if that makes any sense. After having their APA the other night, I had high hopes for this.. but this one is a miss in my books. A boring beer that has an odd astringent aftertaste. Not worth my $7 and the first sub par beer I've had from this brewer.

600 ml bottle purchased from LCBO for under $6 CDN. Excited to try this as I rather enjoyed the Weizenbock offered by this brewery featuring a former Prime Minister. Served well chilled into a glass.

Appearance - Clear golden /copper color with 3 fingers of dense white head. Sticky lacing left all around the glass. Head takes its time in diminishing to a small white cap. Attractive looking beer.

Smell - Hoppy aroma, with a middling amount of base malts. Some earthy aromas there too. I found this beer particularly challenging to identify what I was smelling.

Taste - Some rice pudding, molasses and earthiness mixed with mild bitterness in some sort of cauldron is what I noticed. Taste was a bit thinner than I expected as most beers maintain some sort of aftertaste, whereas this beer the flavor was there and then suddenly it was gone. the flavors were good, but if the lingered longer thsi score would have been higher.

Mouthfeel - Smooth and creamy with a light feel, Still a bit syrupy also the medium carbonation and dry finish burn through that.

Overall - Kind of strange for an IPA as there's a number of high point and low points with this beer. Wish the flavor was a little bolder (especially for an IPA) and the taste lingered longer, but there are pieces here to build a great beer. Still good enough that I wouldn't turn some down if offered, but probably won't repeat this purchase.
