andrewturba (1125) - Alberta, - JAN 29, 2013
Pours a nice clear amber colour with a big sticky white head that seems to last a while leaving some lace up the glass. Aromas of pine, fruity, citrus, and grassy hop mix. Flavours are a nicely balanced piney resin and grapefruit hop bitterness, bitterness is high and lingers just enough into the after taste without being harsh, and a crystal malty sweetness.

PhatB420 (689) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Can into giant bulbuls tulip. Pours a rich mahogany amber/copper. Massive and long lasting head, leaves about 2cm and ample lacing. Aroma of dank hops, sour apple, hay, pine, zesty and ripe orange. Taste of bitter hops, dry and ripe, orange peel, cucumber, tart melon. Leaves a dry and bitter aftertaste, followed by a hop punch from Canada, and solid citrus offerings. Solid brew here.

Gluepot (93) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2015
Sweet malt and citrus hops in the nose. Very punchy and fresh tasting hop medley, featuring citrus, grapefruit, pine and orange elements. Soft bready malt underneath completes the classic west coast IPA profile. Significant carbonation pumps up the taste. "Juicy and fresh" - the great descriptor of superior West Coast IPAs!

Cloudy, orange-amber with a small, off-white head. Orange malt aroma. Taste is fruity, orange malt......long, heavy, orange-peel bitter. Malty... Pretty solid.

Bottle. Orange pulp and grapefruit peel aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Mildly sweet orange malt and moderately bitter orange peel flavor. Good but standard.

malrubius (1930) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Can from Meditrina. Copper with lasting head lace and yeast floaters. Fruity toasted caramel and bready aroma. Sweet toasted caramel nuts and lots of fruit with fruity medium spicy bitter long fruity finish. Medium body nice carbo. Pretty good but quite sweet and toasty. I am shocked at the ratings as I thought most people prefer a drier more hop forward IPA. Oh well, to each his own.

craftycarl21 (2285) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 22, 2015
16 oz. can. Pours a mostliy clear deep orange with big, fluffy white head. Nose and flavor are marked with bitter grapefruit pith, sourdough and rye grain, pine. Too much malt character. Good hops, but just not all that impressive.
