Best pint I’ve had in a while - drinks best when a bit colder. Floral hoppy taste, with a slight note of caramel.

Great colour on the beer, spicy hops that seemed a bit off, flavour was very a bit like wet wood, no aromas and I barely could finish it.

northropfrye (2208) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 2, 2013
For something called an IPA this was not bitter enough for my liking. A bit sweet, but rather bland altogether. Mediocre.

On tap, poured a classic pale. Very little aroma wise, but not a decent bitter flavor with a nice finish.
