4.34/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a golden straw with s finger and a half of white head. Smell is mellow with hints of tropical fruit, citrus and bready malt. Taste follows the nose. Really delicate layers of bitterness, citrus and bready malt. Mouthfeel is smooth, nicely carbonated. This was really a big surprise for me. One of the best non-VT IPAs I've had in quite some time.

A world class Quebecois IPA that I'm enjoying with many thanks to mtomlins.

Pours a hazy light golden straw colour with a white head that leaves an impressive amount of lacing. Fantastically hop-forward aroma of resinous pine and citrus, with only hints of the tropical fruits that are more prevalent in the taste. Flavour is a great blend of my favourite APA hop tones, with pink grapefruit, loads of mangos and many other fruits. The finish has a surprisingly sweet malt element underneath the typical hop bitterness, but it's a pleasant ending to a powerful beer.

4.28/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 660ml bottle into a stemmed tulip glass

A: Straw with an orange hue in color and is almost clear; pours to a huge sudsy white head that gets creamy as it slowly settles and leaves behind a veritable curtain of lacing.

S: A beautiful, big hoppy nose! First off are big juicy tropical fruits (mangoes and papayas) followed by some subtle spicy notes and sweet malt.

T: For such an amazing, hoppy nose, Yakima is very malt forward with lots of rich caramel malt thru the taste. The hops are there with lots of citrus and tropical fruit qualities. There are some bittering hops drying out the finish.

M: Medium body and carbonation; round and smooth.

O: An amazing hoppy nose that was lacking in the taste and finished with a strange aftertaste. With such an amazing nose, I was a bit let-down that there was not more of a hop presence when drinking the beer. Still, very drinkable and I need to resample to see if the off-flavor is still present.

4.28/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

660ml bottle poured into tulip 8/7/13

A slight haze in a bright yellow body, lots of tiny bubbles and fine sediment, large loose off white foam has great retention slowly falling to a eraser top island leaving lots of soapy lace

S fuzzy peach candy, tangerine and mandarin with a little mango, pines strong with some floral notes and vitamin C chewable's, smells strong and sexy

T a little lemon rind and grapefruit I wasn't picking up on the nose, not quite as tropical with more pine needles, still solid but the nose takes it

M fairly light bodied for an IPA but it works, a nice bitter snap and the bubbles give it some body, long lingering rind and pine finish

O I wasn't expecting this beer to make my day but it did just that, not lacking anywhere and it smells divine, I could drink another bomber or two no issues

I never would've guessed I'd be drinking this random want today, I'm considering myself lucky today
