3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smells of citrus, and melon with hoppy notes. Pours clear, amber looks of high carbonation and an off white head 1/2 finger width.
Tastes floral and perfumy, with citrus, burnt malt. Mouthfeel is decent for an IPA, medium body, lively carbonation, almost astringent.
This is the best IPA I can consistently get in a six pack. It is better than most and a great tasting beer.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Had on draught at a local bar. Orangey colour with an off white head. Strong fruity hop aroma. Tropical fruit hop taste as well as some bitter pine and caramel malts. Being rather new to the IPA scene this is definitely the best Iíve had.

Can from LCBO. Pours ruby with thick, white head. Aroma of grapefruit and pine a bit of banana. Fairly oily, almost chewable mouthfeel. Taste of grapefruit, pine with lingering citrus / coniferous aftertaste.Complex and flavourful, yet refreshing: a delight! One of my go-to beers.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, resin).
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium to full body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic.
One-dimensional in the nose, pretty much just grapefruit/resin juice. Almost towards DIPA in the mouth...thicker, sweeter, and boozier than I expected. Overall pretty average.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hops dominate the aroma as an ipa should but some malt does shine through. Some tropical fruit with bigger pine. Very nice looking brew with a deep red color to it. Malt is simple and really complements the hops. Very nice ipa. Flavor and odor are free of common flaws in the the style.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2014 Can from the LCBO. Pours a clear deep copper with a small white head that quickly fades and leaves just a bit of lace, Nose is lots of pine and grapefruit with some earthiness. First sip produces some light sweetness with a good level of bitterness to follow it up but then a huge dose of skunkiness and burnt toast appears at the back end. I donít recall this from previous cans so this may just be a bad one. Will have to rerate this in the future. Went right into the sink.
Different can from a different LCBO. Pours a deep clear copper with a huge off white head that fades slowly and leaves great lace. Nose is pine and grass with hints of caramel. Slightly sweet start before the hops kick in and produce a nice bitterness with grapefruit, pineapple and some light spice. MUCH better than the previous can. Medium slick mouth with average carbonation.
