2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

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

I really don’t like IPA’s I am not a fan of bitter beers. It was really unfortunate that when I bought a sample pack this was in it. I always like to taste beers at least once and for an IPA this is not too bad. It reminds me of hanging out with my cousins when I was younger. It wasn’t the most fun thing I could do but better then going to work at subway.

Pours like am IPA, looks like an IPA, that is where the similarities end.
Aroma is weak, taste is weak. Not good. More lager than ipa

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear light orangish yellow with a fizzy off white head. Aroma of sweet fruity esthers and some pale malts. Fruity and malty body is balanced well with hops and a bit of bitterness but overall this is too light of a body to be an ipa however I was surprised by the hop presence in this beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rating #902 - January 12, 2014 - Bought a cheap 6er of this at Bellerose Liquor in St. Albert - 355ml Can, 5.5%. Clear yellow pour with a bubbly white head. medium-strong carbonation. Bitter hops balanced by crisp and lingering sweetness. Aroma was also much stronger, sweet peach/apricot smell. Decent offering, but not worthy of the IPA moniker. A lighter bodied APA at best, but still very drinkable. Much better than some of the other KB offspring.

355ml can. Pours a clear yellow gold with a rocky white cap, after slopping into the glass. Aroma is watered down caramel, biscuit, and light citrus. Taste is sweet and slightly tart. Watery mouthfeel and an abrupt dryness. Thin finish.
