Appearance- golden orange, clear body. Ample tan coloured head leaves nice lacing on the glass and a creamy film on top. Aroma- crack the can and you're hit in the face with a fistful o' hops. After pouring it opens up nicely. Floral, citric and pungent. Mouthfeel- medium body and carbonation. Nice feel and chewiness from the hop oils. Taste- grapefruits, pale malts, and a lingering bitter finish. Overall- top class IPA that I'd put up against any in the PNW. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Stoned99 (291) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 5, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2015 473ml can from LCBO. Thanks Peter. Aroma: tropical fruits, pineapples, a little bit of pines. App: clear copper with small white head with some lacing. Taste and palate: light to medium body, resinous, light to medium bitter finish. Average carbonation. Overall: for some reason didn’t expect much from this beer. I enjoyed it, could taste a little more, maybe more fruity, it’s a bit watery which is weird for an IPA. It feels like it they only focused on bitterness instead of a combination of fruits/resin and bitterness. Finish isn’t the best I’ve had from an IPA but overall a good IPA from Canada

It's almost not an IPA. It's not that bitter I think you could call this a pale ale and no one would notice. That being said I enjoyed it an will buy it again. Also I like the packaging. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PhatB420 (691) - 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 (1937) - 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.
