I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Very drinkable ale. Nothing overpowering but good flavour and hoppy taste to it. Got it in sampler pack and would definitely purchase it on its own.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
355 ml can from a sixer purchased at Real Canadian Liquorstore, served in a goblet. Pours a clear, bright light copper hue with active, moderate carbonation streams, and an off-white cap that retreats after holding strong for a few minutes, leaving a few bubbly lace webs and rings. The aroma immediately tantalizes, with hops presenting bright citrus and sweet berries, moderately strong, and somewhat like fruit punch. A moderate current of toasted malt weaves its way in between. The flavor sneaks in an unexpected bite of resinous bitterness, sandwiched with grapefruit and cherry, that happily settles back after the initial sips, and the warm toast of the malts coasts along in turn. A little bit thick, with a softly lingering bitter pine note. The overall impression suggests an India Session Ale, but with an added 0.5% punch above 5% abv. Like Red Racer ISA, a similarly configured favorite beer, this ale does a fine job of balancing maltiness and hoppiness in a eminently drinkable and enjoyable whole. I feel blessed to have found three new affordable favorites for my go-to list. Yay me! Yay beer!

can. Poured clear golden with a off-white head. Malty aroma with a touch of hops. Medium-light body, mouthfeel is a bit chewy with a tart dry finish. Caramel malt flavour with grassy citrusy hops, slight spiciness with bitter-sweet grapefruit note.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice amber pour with a foamy head. Decent fruity aroma, flavour is mildly grassy and citrusy with a strong malt presence. Nice, fairly generic IPA.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Jaune pale avec un petit col blanc. L’arôme faible de houblon et agrumes. Mince en bouche avec carbonation haute. Plein du malt pour le style. Simple et honnêtement pas bonne.

Can to Sam Adams fancy pint glass, the beer pours a dark amber with a white head. The aroma is weak and consists of citrus, grass, orange peel and not much else. The taste and palate are ok...nothing wowing flavour wise with typical notes of resin, herbs, general hoppiness but nothing really to back it up. The body is thin, co2 high. Drinkable enough but boring and uninspired.

Very drinkable beer. No where near the heavy flavour and IBU count of some other IPAs - this is my current ’session’ IPA. Lack of a fruity taste also makes this beer easier to pair with food. The lower price compared with other brews (macro and micro) make this an easy choice if budget is important.

Really not as bad as I thought it would be. Faint smell of citrus. Body is thin, but the hop bitterness comes through and lingers a bit. The malty aspect of this is to prominent for an IPA. to weak to be considered an iPA, but it is smooth and drinkable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Minimal head. Dark amber with a bit of haze. Light hop scent of a nice craft amber or thin pale rather than IPA. Light malt and stronger hops. Weird bit of soda character to the body. It’s like they are trying for an IPA but without committing to the cost for quality, depth and body. Hops are strong enough for thin body but overall comes off like a weak bodied APA
