Pours a dark cloudy gold with a small head. Nice lacing on the surface. Great hoppy smell. Citrusy, grapefruit. Big hop taste throughout. Some light malt in the background but not a lot. Bitter. Nice bitter hop aftertaste. Well carbonated. Medium to full bodied. Pretty easily drinkable. Very nice IPA. I really like the bitterness in this. Could have a few of these.

Got this at the LCBO this past summer.

From a bottle into a snifter

APPEARANCE: Pours a one finger, medium looking, off-white head with good retention. Gamboge orange, hazy, with lower levels of carbonation. Fades to a light wisp and sticks to the sides of the glass. A splotchy wisp remains leaving some nice looking lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Pale malts, caramel, toffee, floral notes with some light citrus aromas. Bold enough, but not quite impressive enough.

TASTE: English style IPA for sure. Pale malts, caramel and toffee flavors up front, with some floral hops at the finish. Bolder and lingering finish of toffee and caramel with an underlying hop bitterness the whole way through. Floral and some grassy bitterness. More forthcoming than the nose.

PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Creamy enough, goes down smooth and finishes slightly sticky. Good feel.

OVERALL: A solid English style IPA with an enjoyable flavor profile. This style doesn't get the praise its American counterpart does, but as far as English IPA's go, this one is well worth checking out. Recommended.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance- Amber copper with slight haze, minimal islands of head

Smell- light floral scents and citrus of grapefruit, pale malts underneath but not very prominent

Taste- hop bite on the tip, earthy middle and grass notes, well balanced

Mouthfeel- medium body with hop oiliness

Overall- a nice IPA that is earthier than most but props to having it's own jive. The spice and malt balance is right there.
