Orange pour with a white head. Pleasant citrus, pine, and floral aroma with some caramel sweetness. Slightly caramel and brown sugar sweet on the outset, nice payload of hops with some dank herbalness, citrus, cedar resin. Way better than I had expected, one of the better BC beers out there.

Can. Thanks clint! Pours a crystal clear medium amber with a big dense tan head. Enormous piney nose, smells just delicious. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, caramel, and tons of pine on the mid palate. Surprisingly approachable and mild finish.

To my palate, the best Canadian west coast style IPA available in Alberta. "Nuff said.

Nice, hoppy IPA although overall it comes out a bit watered down. It’s a nice can of beer on a warm summer day, but wouldn’t go out of my way for it.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2011 This is the first IPA I could really get into. For some reason in the past, I could have an IPA now and again, but I couldn’t acquire the taste. Must have had the wrong kind, because I keep coming back to this one lately... great stuff!

Bendrixian (1215) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2010
one of my all time favorite canadian IPA’s. a bit cloudy outta the can, good carbonation. big hops and a nice balance of malts. this is a serious IPA. on the palate it is all fresh cones, bittering hops and there is a slight hint of malt. my friends call this brew one dimensional but it delivers everytime and doesn’t disappoint and that makes it a great beer.

355ml can from a good member of the Ontario craft beer community, In Bracebridge, thanks Jed. This stuff was freaking fantastic. Hazy copper with a large beige head. The aroma is just bursting with juicy grapefruit hops, just perfect. Flavour hits early with some delicious caramalt and biscuit followed quickly by major bittering hops, and loads of west coast hoppy flavours. Nice prickly bite left lingering on the tongue for a while. Everything blends so seemlessly in this one it’s really something to admire. Hit the spot so well on a hot summer afternoon, I could honestly drink this every day and be happy.

355 ml can. Pours clear amber with minimal frothy head. Fresh aromas of grass and citrus. Medium taste of bitterness from hops is well balanced by a light sweetness from malt, medium body with average carbonation, and a long finish. This has turned into my favorite off-the-shelf IPA! It can stand up to many IPAs that cost considerably more money.
