Can, courtesy of Enjoyit. A hazy, golden-orange beer with a small, off-white head. Citrusy, sweet aroma with some pink grapefruit. Bitter flavor with citrus, pink grapefruit juice and some malty sweetness. Hints of caramel. Full-bodied and nicely carbonated. Overall, a bit sharp bitterness, but a nice beer indeed, I bet it has surprised and frightened some people expecting a pale lager when they picked their canned beer. 110129

500 ml can from private order. Pours nice deep copper, big frothy white head, tonnes of lacing. Aroma and taste are well balanced sweet caramel malt and lots, I mean lots, of resiny, earthy hops. Dynamite IPA!

Pours sparkling clear amber with thin head. Aroma screams "drink me!" And hops - fresh tropical fruits, plus grapefruit. In the mouth I get the same tropical/citrus hops, with a bit of a malt backbone kicking in halfway through. Long lingering bitterness to finish. Lovely.

Tap in Vancouver. FANTASTIC IPA!! This reminds me of a fantastic West Coast style IPA. Big hop aroma and flavor. Big citrus and floral head with a nice mix of malt and hops on the finish. Wonderful stuff. Better than any other beer I tried in Vancouver! YUM!

A very enjoyable IPA indeed, very malty and full flavored, nice bitterness and hop profile as well, very sticky and piney, sweet and citrus tones as well. One of the better IPAs out there in my opinion, especially if you like them sticky.

Can, which I love (both the convenience and the design. Pours a hazy copper with a nice offwhite head that leaves some nice lace. The aroma is of beautiful juicy west coast american hops. The flavor is the same, but with more resinous notes. Dry bitter finish. The malt is there, but the hops are definitely the predominant character. Medium bodied with minimal carbonation, nice. Overall: my first Canadian IPA, and I find it delightful. I would never have thought a canadian IPA could taste so west-coast-America.

I think this was almost a good attempt at an IPA in a can, but it falls short of being really worthwhile. For starters, it was $15 for a 6-pack... which is a bit extreme. Taste was overly bitter. Not hopped to hell - but more like the hops were overly-extracted. Perhaps it was a bad batch. Otherwise, the color and mouth-feel were good for an IPA, though nothing special. I’d be inclined to try a can from another batch, just not at that price.

12 oz can. Pours a medium golden with a small white head. Aroma is nicely citric and piney hops, a good balance between the two, soft resins and a nice caramel biscuit back. Flavor starts nicely sweet with the caramel and citric notes playing well before being hit with a part aggressive pine hop bitterness. The bitter mellows a bit towards the finish leaving a lingering sweet hop note with touches of caramel and toffee. Medium body and a sharp carbonation. Nice IPA

HonkeyBra (4036) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - APR 8, 2011
Clear orange pour with thick egg shell colored head. Aroma of strong resin and pine, some caramel and toffee. Strong pine hop not surrounded by caramel. Medium bodied. Strong crystal malt, hop extract. Biscuits, bread, tofffee malt. OK, I would call this a mediocre IPA. Medium bodied. Finishes bitter. Kind of mediocre IPA.
