COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!"

12oz. Can: Aroma of hops, grapefruit, hop oil, light pine, and caramel malt. Poured amber in color with a medium-sized, creamy, dense, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is medium to heavily bitter, and light to medium sweet. Tastes of hops, pine, grapefruit, light caramel malt, light resin, hop oil, and some evergreen. Medium body. Oily, slick texture becomes lightly dry. Average carbonation. Hop, pine, grapefruit, and slight caramel malt finish is bitter and slightly dry.

Cans are cool. Very citrus and pine filled with some floral notes, too. Quite clean and refreshing. Has a nice bitterness through to the finish. Went great with my Chinese food.

Canned IPA? Yes!!! Pours a golden orange with a lacy, spotty head. The aroma bursts with citrus fruit and honey. The flavor has grapefruit, orange, lemon, honey malt, pine, resin, peach, apricot, and a nice lighty (yet balanced) bitter finish. Really, really good. It reminds me of Blind Pig.

Can that Eric brought on the camping trip for Hill Farmstead’s opening. Pours a clear red amber with a medium white head. Earthy hops and faint citrus, a bit of malt. Tastes pretty much like a standard pale ale, malty, light citrus throughout, somewhat earthy. Finishes with a slow light hop bitterness and a bit more malt.

12 oz can. Pours a clear coppery amber with a medium sized fluffy white head. Nice aroma of tangerine, buttery notes, floral hops and light pine. Taste of freshly squeezed citrus, pine, floral hops and light buttery notes. Very nice IPA.

From a can that has a silly, sexy drawing on it. Sweet, piney, floral hop aroma. Pretty dry, medium-bodied IPA. Flavorful, with a fair amount of grapefruit bitterness. A super IPA at a low price - no complaints about that! And it is nice to finally come across a good craft beer from north of the border.

Can: The aroma has lots of citrus hops (grapefruit), some caramel, and a touch of pine. It pours a transparent amber with a half inch yellow-tinged off-white head that leaves behind moderate sticky lacing. The flavor starts with a quick dose of sweet oranges and light-moderate caramel. The finish is mostly citrusy hops with grapefruit, light-moderate floral hops, and a touch of pine. I wish we had a good canned IPA available in Michigan.

Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - MAY 26, 2010
Pours Deep amber thick foamy head. Very clear. Amazing hop aroma, strong and floral very complex. Malty to start with a strong floral hoppiness and just the right amount of bitterness. This is a fantastic IPA. Plus, the Red Racer on the can looks like my Girlfriend. All in all kick ass. I never thought I would have such a good IPA from a can.

Can. Best canned beer yet! Pours crystal clear orange/amber, 1-finger off-white head, great lacing. Nose is sweet, with loads of fresh citrus and stonefruits, plenty of juniper here as well, mild malt notes hold up well, and the yeast note is somewhat distinctive here, which is odd. Flavors of juicy citrus, hops, nice round maltiness, very drinkable, an excellent IPA.
