Best beer in BC, def. the best IPA made in BC. Only down part is that it comes in cans, if you can find a place that has it on tap. Enjoy the HOPS. Favourite session beer right now!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can: Poured an amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of hops is pretty intense with bitter and citrus notes clearly identified. Taste is a great mix between some citrus and bitter hops with a good caramel malt backbone. Body is a bit thin for style with good carbonation. Well done and would stand well within some of the staple of the style.

12oz can. Now this is a serious IPA. The hop smell came jumping out of the can as soon as I cracked it open and the taste did not disappoint. Pours a light golden with a white head. Did I mention the hops?

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2012 On tap at the Alibi Room - pours an amber/gold colour. Aroma is extremely hoppy, with prominent floral notes and not much malt backing - the florla nose is unique, unlike any other IPA I’ve had. Flavour is much the same, with huge floral hops lingering. When fresh, and especially on tap, this is one of the best (non-Imperial) IPAs out there and likely the best in BC along with Fat Tug.

12 oz. can. Pours an amber gold with white head. Great crisp floral hop aroma. Taste is bitter and very hoppy, start to finish. This a great smelling beer and a good ipa.

Dark golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of fresh, floral hops, bitter amarillo pellets, citrus fruits, pine, toffee, and toasted malts. Taste of pine resin, citrus fruits, grass, sweeter caramel malts, and bitter grapefruit in the finish. Thanks to Tom for sharing this!

Wow...was a surprised. Hands down the best beer I have had from a can to date. I have been enjoing the 21S IPA in cans lately and this one just blew it away. Pours a lightly hazy golden orange with a medium creamy white head. Aroma was all out fresh American hops. Floral, citrusy and piney. Exactly what you want in a great American style IPA. Also had some caramel and bready malt notes peaking through. Flavor was also heavy on the American hops bringing that perfect citrus, floral and pine resin character. Hop bitterness was there for sure and there was enough malt to balance this one out nicely. This beer needs to make it to PA!

Been waiting a while to try this, and it was worth it! Easily the best local IPA. Poured a clear, rich copper beneath a creamy ivory head. Not a thick head, but most resiliant it was. Aroma was enticingly hoppy. The flavour had enough hop bitterness to complement the smooth finish, My palate was pleased.

On tap at the Alibi Room in Vancouver, BC. Pours orange, with a mid-sized dense head. Big on hops! Really fresh, crisp aroma. Mostly citrus, some pine. Flavor follows suit. The beerkeep said it was the best IPA in Canada. I believe him. Big, full flavor, tons of hops. Refreshingly bitter. Maybe a bit overcarbonated. Far exceeded my expectations, though.
