The beer pours a hazed medium gold colour with a foamy white head that lasts a minute or two. The aroma is tropical fruit, stale grass, herbal hops and…..cheese? Not sure what to make of the aroma but that cheese smell takes away from everything. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is grass, tropical fruit, and herbal hops. In fact, I enjoy the flavour. It wouldn’t be a “go to” beer, but I would never turn one down.

The beer pours a dark gold colour with a creamy off-white head that lasts a few minutes. Very lively in the chalice. The aroma is tropical citrus fruits, light spices, grains, and yeast. More Belgian than IPA in my opinion. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with slightly above average carbonation. The flavour is more IPA than Belgian with the tropical fruit notes front and centre before giving way to grass and a hint of yeast. A very good beer.

The beer pours a very hazy light yellow-orange colour with a thin white film for a head. The aroma is tropical fruit juice, very akin to a Five Alive drink, with hints of biscuit grains, and light yeast. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is very similar to my morning Five Alive with an alcohol bite. Not my glass of beer. I keep hoping I like one of these session juicuy IPAs but so far….nada!

The beer pours a pale translucent gold colour with a generous bubbly off-white head which disappears within seconds. The aroma is cereal malt, weak yeast, and some herbal hops notes. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is quite malty up front with lots of grains, followed by a decent bitter hop finish. Not a bad beer, but for some reason I was hoping for something more than ‘average’

The beer pours a translucent light copper colour with a generous light tan coloured head that lasts a few minutes. The aroma is pine, grapefruity hops, biscuit grains and light spice notes. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is reminiscent of a solid American west coast IPA pre-2012 with notes of pine, caramel, and grapefruit finished with a bitter hop bite. Quite good when given the abundance of tropical fruit IPAs these days.

I was a bit disappointed. After seeing the name, I half expected Allen Iverson to pop out of the can. He didn’t. The beer poured a light straw colour, with plenty of effervescence feeding a quickly disappearing white cap. The aroma was bready balt, some spice, and weak herbal hops. The mouthfeel was weak to medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour was bready malt, weak spice, and a slightly bitter hop finish. There were times I thought that the beer tasted something like a Labatt Blue from the 80s.

The beer pours a slightly hazed honey gold colour with a 1: white bubbly cap supported by a large amount of effervescence. The aroma is more barley than wheat, with herbal hops, some spices, and a definite yeasty note. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, crisp, with average carbonation. The flavour is wheat, some tart fruity notes, and a definite yeasty flavour. Witbiers aren’t my favourite style, and this champagne take on the style didn’t help that opinion any.

The beer pours a solid coca-cola colour when held up to a strong white light with a generous creamy light brown head which disappears quickly. The aroma is roasted malt, coffee, and vanilla with nary a whiff of coconut to be found. The mouthfeel is creamy, full bodied, and well carbonated. The flavour is sweeter than the aroma would indicate with notes of chocolate, molasses, and coconut balancing out the roasted malt and coffee flavours. Not a bad beer in the end.

The beer pours a solid black colour with a generous creamymy chocolate milk coloured head. The aroma is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and a hint of vanilla. It says barrel aged on the can, but I can’t detect any in the aroma. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation, a bit disappointed it isn’t creamy and more full bodied. The barrel aging can be tasted in the flavour as there is definitely some wood notes on the tongue, very dry wood notes. Not as much coffee in the flavour as the aroma. A decent effort by a small brewer.

The beer pours a slightly hazy pale rust colour with a generous foamy off-white head. The aroma is toasted malt, light caramel, weak citrus, and bread. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour leans heavily towards citrus peel, particularly grapefruit and orange, which isn’t my cup of tea. There are hints of herbal hops and caramel as the beer warms up a little, but the citrus peel lingers.
