Not really an IPA, more of an EPA by North American style norms. Appearence is quite fizzy, orange colour. Aroma is slightly hoppy, flavour is charaterised by English style malt flavours: somewhat sweet and grassy. OK. Bottle.

ENG: 473ml can from Liquor Mart in Winnipeg, poured into the tulip. Clean, dark-golden color with small tan head. Very shallow aromas, hard to say, maybe some citrus, but mostly malty and a bit soury. Tastes malty, soury, no hops, boring. No bitterness. Feels like a lager. Watery, medium carbonation.
PL: Puszka 473ml z Liquor Mart w Winnipeg, przelane do kieliszka. Klarowna, ciemno-złocista barwa z niewielką jasną pianą. Aromaty bardzo płytkie, ciężko powiedzieć, może lekko cytrusowe, ale głównie słodowe i kwaśnawo-gorzkawe. W smaku słodowe, kwaśnawe, brak chmielu, nudne. Brak goryczki. Przypomina lagery. Wodniste, średnie nasycenie.

Looked great but otherwise didn’t deliver. Deep copper with a thin but persistent head that left great lacing. Grassy and earthy but that’s 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 Rock’s version ain’t half bad.

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. Doesn’t 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.

2.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
