look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A-Pours a fairly clear, dark gold color. Minimal head. Head does leave some lacing.

S-Not incredibly intense but a bit coarse. Grapefruit and pine mostly. Hop forward but I don't love how the hops are presenting themselves here.

T-More of the same. Each sip makes me like this beer less and less. It just tastes like it was put together in an awkward fashion. Bitter but without much flavor behind the bitterness.

M-Medium to light bodied. Dry and bitter. Not too high in drinkability.

O/D-Not a big fan of this one.

Serving type: on-tap

A decent bang on west coast ipa, enjoyed at the brewpub. Light reddish colour. A lot of hops , everything was on the higher hoppy side, but also a lot of carbonation. Still decent drinkable bt would be more so if not so much carbonation. Some off notes.

Big thanks to Hophead247 for this growler. Cheers Jason!

Slightly hazed golden yellow body. Two finger bone white head is set atop. The head recedes rather quickly leaving scattered lacing clinging to the glass.

Citrus aroma is centered up front. Pine smells linger just behind. Very slight floral aroma sits in back. Lightly sweet pale malt is in perfect proportions with the hops.

Biting pithy bitterness rolls across the tongue,soon followed by a sweeter citrus flavor. Grassy hop flavor towards the back of the palate was completely unexpected from the nose. Soft sweetness from the malt, I am very pleased to see a lack of caramel malt.

Medium bodied, slightly oily feel on the tongue. Finish is dry and pleasant.

Good beer, glad to have had the chance to try it. Bodego Head will not stand out amongst many of the IPAs out there but it is very solid. The flavor is well balanced and the finish dry, makes for an easy IPA to drink.

Poured from the tap to a light reddish-orange with a thin white head that lingered thru mid glass and left decent lacing. Nose was a nice crisp citrusy grapefruit, mouthfeel was full and tingly and the flavor even accentuated the grapefruit more than the nose. This all led to a full long finish.

A pleasant surprise from this out of the way place.

A - Cloudy honey orange almost has a maple finish color (if that make sense). Firm white head and okay lacing.

S - Fresh Citrus, muted pine and some toasted malt.

T - Bitter up front with the citus and pine the background has toasted and carmel malt notes.

M - oily and slick with an unexpected dry finish.

D - Everytime I come to 3rd Street Aleworks I enjoy this tasty brew.

This is a decent IPA that has some light maltiness and flavour to balance the hops and is fairly drinkable. It is also definitely better from the cask.

It's orangish gold with a medium off-white head that soon thins but leaves a little foamy lace.

In taste and aroma, it is citrusy with light pine, and a little sweet, faintly caramelly grain but not much. It's a little bland still for the bitterness and this fault is more pronounced when on tap. From the cask, it is more balanced and flaovurful.

Serving type: cask
