4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
The fruity hop profile of this beer’s aroma is just dazzling -- it deserves a perfect ten. Watermelon, evergreen resin, clementine, rangpur... just wonderful. The taste is a perfect balance of fruity sweetness and bitter, and the finish has a lasting fruitiness. One of the best versions I’ve had of one of my favourite styles.

On tap in Banff. Lovely peach and melon aroma, which carriers on into the taste. Pale reddy amber colour, medium bitterness, far too easy to drink at 6.5%, the fruit flavours remain prominent throughout to give a great finish. Really enjoyed this.

Good solid IPA. Not heavy hopped like west coast IPAS I’m used too, but definitely assertive. Taste is smooth and just really pleasant.

Big time hops packed into this can, mostly pine in the nose. Caramel malt sweetness. Sticky mouth feel. Orange with a brown hue.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark hazy reddish amber pour. Thick head of tiny off white bubbles. Aroma of orange, pine, crystal malt and alcohol. Flavor is sweet and boozy. Too much crystal malt overwhelms the ample hop flavors. Orange, pine, caramel. Bitterness is soft and pleasant. This could probably pull off the imperial amber style better than a straight IPA.

Probably the best canned IPA I have had since Surly Furious. Actually, kinda tastes like Surly Furious. Piney, resinous hop profile. Thick back of the back of the tongue bitterness, but smooth. Very dry, very little sweetness.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Honestly I don’t know if it gets much better in the IPA department for me, than this beer. Pours a beautiful amber colour with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma is of big tropical hops, pine, citrus, and resin. Tastes of fresh pine, citrus, caramel, toffee, and resin all perfectly balanced. Has the right amount of bitterness with low carbonation and a medium body. It is a very clean IPA and I love it.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
My benchmark IPA. As far as I am knowledgeable on the matter it is what a good representation of the style should be. A very clear copper amber with a thin head that leaves excellent lacing. A potent medley of floral and citrus hops melded with smooth caramel malts. The right comradery of bitter and sweet make this medium carbonated hop-pop a great treat.
