The beer pours a very clear light orange with an off white head that only rises about half a finger and is gone right away. The aroma is really nice. Perfect combination and sweet and better. Starts off with a really nice sweet citrus fading into a perfect amount of hops, enough to know they are there but not all dominating. The taste is equally as nice. It starts off a little sweet then fades into a great hoppy finish. An almost pefect ipa balance because in neither respect does the other overpower the other. The feel is nice, with a very long lasting dry finish.

Heard some hype about this beer, finally got around to buying it. I guess people are probably just gazonked because it is a Canadian beer. I would take it over a molson any day after my hockey games. It pours an interesting golden orange color with a soapy white head that leaves some pretty nice lacing. It has a really nice smell. It has melon, citrus, pineapple, and mango. It has just a hoppy must to it that is intoxicating to sniff. The flavour is right on. Tonnes of melon here. It has a creeping bitterness in the finish with some pink grapefruit. There is also a big taste of flowers, like honeysuckles or something, very floral, maybe akin to orange blossom honey. It is a great fruit bomb with enough west coast attitude to appeal to the people who love bitterness. Serving type: can Reviewed on: 01-18-2011 03:01:18

I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. It poured a deep amber color with a good amount of head and nice lacing after a few sips. Good hops taste that was balanced by good english malts. Enjoyable.

12 oz can. Pours a marvelous deep amber/orange with a 2 finger white head that slowly recedes leaving thick gobs of sticky white lace. Aroma is full of big juicy hops and fruit. Taste is pretty much the same. Hops and fruit. Full palate with average carbonation. Love the artwork on the can.

boFNjackson (4198) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 12, 2011
Can... Poured golden with a beige head. Aroma of weed-like hops, very prominent. Lots of bitterness here, pine and citrus but also super well balanced especially towards the end. Also notes of ginger-root, earthy bitterness, and a some candied sweetness like sweet tarts,

maley1 (1000) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 6, 2011
Orange colored pour with quickly disapating head. Aroma of grapefruit and pine needles. Taste of grapefruit with a bit of sweetness and a long bitter finish. Canada’s best ipa.

Nickls (2226) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAR 1, 2011
Can. Bright orange copper with a slight chill haze. Grapefruit, citrus, and light resin in the aroma. Really nicely bitter with grapefruit, some herbal and resin notes, and a citrus finish...barely a touch of a light sweetness. Medium body with tight, tiny carbonation bubbles. Really nice and bitter, but well-done as well. Good IPA.

LinusStick (3135) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2011
A nice and surprising IPA! Aroma was big and full of hops. Grapefruit and grassy. Pour was orange with a few rising bubbles and a two finger white head. Taste was all hops in the front. Strong resiny hops with grapefruit and sticky citrus clinging to the inside of the mouth with malt only kicking in late into the aftertaste. After the swallow, the hops come back and coat tonsils and top of the mouth. Nice carbonation. Delicious!
