An ale fashioned to survive the long voyage from England to India during the British colonization. Hops, hops, and more hops, this ale has an intense aroma and a long lingering finish. Drink as an appetizer on its own, or pair it with any hearty dish. A beer for the connoisseur, this is the Brewmaster’s choice. "Cheers!"

Big time hops packed into this can, mostly pine in the nose. Caramel malt sweetness. Sticky mouth feel. Orange with a brown hue.

A very tasty IPA. Pours a rich, dark golden with a thick head. Flavors are apricot, grapefruit, and other semi-sweet citrus. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark hazy reddish amber pour. Thick head of tiny off white bubbles. Aroma of orange, pine, crystal malt and alcohol. Flavor is sweet and boozy. Too much crystal malt overwhelms the ample hop flavors. Orange, pine, caramel. Bitterness is soft and pleasant. This could probably pull off the imperial amber style better than a straight IPA.

Probably the best canned IPA I have had since Surly Furious. Actually, kinda tastes like Surly Furious. Piney, resinous hop profile. Thick back of the back of the tongue bitterness, but smooth. Very dry, very little sweetness.

Honestly I don’t know if it gets much better in the IPA department for me, than this beer. Pours a beautiful amber colour with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma is of big tropical hops, pine, citrus, and resin. Tastes of fresh pine, citrus, caramel, toffee, and resin all perfectly balanced. Has the right amount of bitterness with low carbonation and a medium body. It is a very clean IPA and I love it.

My benchmark IPA. As far as I am knowledgeable on the matter it is what a good representation of the style should be. A very clear copper amber with a thin head that leaves excellent lacing. A potent medley of floral and citrus hops melded with smooth caramel malts. The right comradery of bitter and sweet make this medium carbonated hop-pop a great treat.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2014 What a damn good beer this is! I originally bought this last year in a 355ml can at the LCBO. The old school pin-up girl on a bike artwork is cool, but something about 355ml cans makes me assume a beer is going to be generic/uninteresting. Boy was I wrong. Pours a nice, clear amber orange with lots of clear fizzy, foamy white head. Nose is sweet citrus (orange), caramel with a slight bitter backdrop. Nice tasty caramel malt leading beautifully to a huge, citrusy hop blast. Sweet orange, bitter grapefruit, and a nice piney bitter finish. A must-try for hop heads/IPA fans - this is probably my favourite IPA right now.

Draft to pint glass Spruce, tropical fruit, orange, grapefruit, and pine...classic C hops. Crystal clear amber with no head. Orange, grapefruit, hops, and nice string bitterness.
