Pours a like yellow color, not much head, smells more of malt than hops. Moderate carbonation More of a slightly hopped standard pale ale than a true IPA. It’s better than Alexander Keith’s, but that’s not saying a lot. Hardly any hops at all, and more malt. Don’t get me wrong I like malt balance in an IPA, but the hops should still be in the fore front. More of one of those cheesy "session" IPAs than anything, but not nearly as refreshing. Not the worst beer I’ve had from this company though.

Can from LCBO. Overall this tastes like a malty ale. Aroma of malt, earl grey tea and biscuits. Color is copper clear, foam head, pretty stable. Taste is malt, earl grey tea, a bit sour in the back, watery and leaves a sour walnut lingering aftertaste. No hops detectable in any way. A strange recipe. Not an IPA at all.

473 ml can, Calgary, AB, Canada. Dark amber gold. Frothy head. Floral aroma. Sweet caramel then breadiness and faint resin on the finish.

À première vue, la couleur presque ambrée de cette bière amène une distinction qui rappelle celle d’une IPA dite ’’traditionnel’’ . Au gout, le malt caramélisé rajoute un gout de sucre qui se terni par une finale très peu fruité, qui laisse place à une présence de raisin blanc et d’un arrière goût tirant sur un palais métallique et une amertume altérante. Cette bière n’est que frivolité en bouche, qui ne laisse rien de bon qui vaille....

Can, LCBO. Bought it because I was feeling nostalgic I guess (I moved from Waterloo 2 years ago). Very clear copper with a foamy white head. Metallic stale malt aroma, mixed with tea. Uh oh. Watery mouthfeel. Burnt toast and tea, bready stale malts, and some earthy hops in finish. This is like the regurgitated nightmare of 10 years of failed Ontario IPA’s all coughed up at once. Talk about nostalgia. Yuck.

473 mL can. Medium amber copper pour, fairly large foamy off white head. Biscuit malt and light hop aroma. Nothing too distinctive in the taste, more malt than hop.

473 ml can from LCBO. Pours a medium colour with medium foamy head. Aroma is little hops and more malts. Taste is same. IPA? Meh.

Brassy coloured with thin white head. Light aromas that start with cereal, bready malts, and finish with some grassiness. Light mouth feel. Tastes are light citrus and lighter caramel. An easy to quaff beer, but ultimately forgettable.

Oh this is bad news. Wasn’t expecting a ’real’ IPA -- ie with hops etc -- with this but the word traditional on the can made me assume they were aiming for an English malt bomb style. But no. What we get here is mud. Nothing pops. Flavour profile is boiled vegetables & vitamin pills. Yuck.
