Looked great but otherwise didnít deliver. Deep copper with a thin but persistent head that left great lacing. Grassy and earthy but thatís about it.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
473 ml can purchased singly from Sobeys Liquor and served in a shaker pint glass. Pours a clear, bright medium copper shade with moderate carbonation and a well-retained, light tan head that leaves vertical streaks of lace. Fairly fresh grapefruit, lemon, pine, and some lighter floral notes are immediately present in the aroma, with malt lying low. Flavor accentuates a little more of the malt, while the moderately strong hops rightly take center stage; citrus and pine predominate. Medium mouthfeel and a gently dry, bitter palate. There are more appealing and fresher, vibrant IPAs, but Big Rockís version ainít half bad.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355 ml can poured at home. hazy and amber in color with a medium frothy head. Very little hop smell or taste for an IPA. Doesnít come with the typical bitter aftertaste either. A previous review called it an IPA for lager drinkers. Drinkable beer but not what I would consider an IPA.

Aroma very faint for an ipa. Not very bitter. I think its made more for a lager drinker, not a hop head. Found it was ok, as casual beer to drink not something to yearn for.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours earthy brown with a medium beige head. Aroma is a messy malt profile. Taste is more malt forward, with some earthy hop bitterness again on the moderate side.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a deep copper with a mushy one finger cap that lasts about as long as a plate of nachos at my local bar after work. The can -- in both its copy writing boast of "if hoppy makes you happy" & the cheesy pics of fresh green hops -- promises hops but youíd be more likely to find peace love & understanding than you are hops in this brew. And for that its a bloody fail. Sure, itís properly classified on this site as an English Pale Ale, but to sell this as a hoppy IPA is wild horse shit. Not the worst beer -- itís a punchy, malty ale thatís ok. But I think itíd be more honest to paint the can brown & talk about the malts in the beer. Itís a caramel bomb. Total fail.

I never expect much from Big Rock, and they always deliver. Their beers arenít bad by any means, just very "middle of the road"; always playing it safe. This IPA was very wet, grassy, and had a bit of a watery mouthfeel. Pretty decent.
