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.

kbutler1 (1361) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Can courtesy of drabmuh from BA. Pours a slighlty hazy bright orangish color with a nice 1 figner head that slowly creates a nice collar. The aroma that I am hit with first reminds me of oranges actually with hints of floral. Really nice aroma coming from this, I really hope the taste is just as good. Sweet citrus like malt flavor followed by a nice bitterness that lingers in the mouth. Very smooth and well balanced. Maybe just a touch on the sweet side. Medium mouthfeel. Overall, this is a solid IPA from Canada no less!

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - AUG 24, 2010
(Can from Rum Runner) Malty, hoppy, sweet and beefy...Pours quite hazy medium-orange/amber with two fingers of frothy off-white head. Big aroma of grapefruit, pine, caramel and vanilla. Mouthfeel thick and smooth. Lots of sticky broken lacing. Flavor of big hops - grapefruit and pine bitterness overlaying dense caramel fruitiness with light vanilla. A big, dense, tasty IPA. Kind of a surprise from an innocent-looking, orphaned can sitting alone in the cooler.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2010
Can from a local private order- Thanks for putting this together Mikey! This IPA pours a hazed orange and puts a 2 finger eggshell cap on top, with nice spiderweb lace. The nose is predominately spruce and pine, but has some fruity malt notes like orange and mango, with a perfumey aspect to it. The flavour is all about the hops. Again, pine and spruce jump out with assertive bitterness. There is a bit of almost sweet fruitiness towards the end. Mostly mango and peach. But really, this beer is all about the hops. Long lasting bitter finish. Completely unbalanced and I love it.

BTofthe4Bros (20) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 6, 2010
Appearance - pours a nice deep golden/peach colour, fine bubbly white head. Aroma - lovely nose, big grapefruit, piney & resiny hops, candy, underlying grainy malt. Palate/Flavour - medium body is slick, yet sticky & cloying, grapefruit hops dominate, some caramel malt presence, cloying tart hoppy finish. Overall - a flavourful & worthy westcoast IPA

Atheist_Peace (980) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 4, 2010
355ml can. Pours bright copper with a pillowy off-white head. Big grapefruit on the nose with some underlying notes of resin. Taste is more of the same, with the grapefruit note lasting way into the finish. Maybe a bit of a one trick pony, but it’s a damn good trick.

Draught at The Alibi Room, Vancouver, BC, Canada.
Clear deep golden colour with small white head. Fruity sweet moderately bitter hoppy aroma. Delicious. Flavour is grapefruit, soap, pine and bitter hops. Bitter but highly drinkable. Delicious.

355 ml can from Premier Wines & Spirits (Halifax). Pours a slightly cloudy orange-amber with small eggshell head. Very nice aroma of citrus, grapefruit, piney hops with nice pale malts. Taste follows with nice dry, bitter resiny finish. Full of flavour.
