Pours light amber. Small head, low carbonation. Smells of pine, grapefruit, dish soap. Taste is bitter grass and floral. Longer bitter finish. Not balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at original joes. Nice strong citrus aromas with this one, taste is grassy hops and pine, really coats your mouth and has a nice lingering bitterness. Excellent IPA

ajnepple (4702) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 7, 2016
12 oz single can from Wilbur’s Total Beverage, 4.5 months old. Clear golden appearance with a lacy white head. The aroma of mostly resinous, piney hops. Similar flavor, adding a medium hop bitterness for the style. Medium body with a lingering hoppy finish. A little musty, but better than most IPAs at this age.

Exotique et bien équilibrée. Le sucre est présent, suffisamment pour balancer l’amertume. IPA dans mes cordes.

Honey in color. 16 oz Can. Light carbonation. A little malty, bitter. Not as high on this as some people.

Bierdimpfe (179) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2016
Clear hazy amber color, almost copper with a pink hue, and floating suspending detritus. Creamy foamy white 2 finger head lasting around 5 minutes. Strong legs with some vivid dual speed carbonation activity due to the particles. Strong aromas and flavors of citrus, pine, fruits, floral and herbal spices. Perfectly intensified having some pleasant orange fruity sweetness and a rich earthy spicy bitter feel. Slick creamy medium body with some prickly carbonation. Well intensified finish ending with a spicy, slightly dry, bitter clove like feel and pine aftertaste. Overall : Awesome tasty flavors and balanced intensity. Great freshness while still a little dry, and the spices are just right. Excellent and accessible IPA!

DomD (224) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2016
Can. Aroma seemed rather mild for an IPA, some citrus with a hint of bread. Poured a clear golden amber with plenty of head. Taste was medium bitter. Medium bodied. A decent IPA.

de couleur ambré avec une odeur forte d’houblon, citron, pin et floral. Goût de pin, citron, petit côté caramel. Bonne ouverture, comme la final qui fut bien amer!

sulawang (913) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 2, 2016
Visual: Pours clear copper brown with a large lasting very creamy head, thick sticky lacing, lots of fast clusters of streams. Nose: super fragrant tangerine hops, background malts. (lvl-8)-pungency Attack: creamy-thicker mouthfeel Mid-palate: (lvl-5)-sweetness, (MAIN) fruity orange tangerine, toffee malts, barley w/ alcohol detection Finish: smooth balanced bitter hops, tangerine exhale, lingering bitter hopped finish. Summary: A very smooth and balanced IPA from start to finish, all with a superb mouthfeel. What’s amazing is this is usually sold in 6pack cans.

hellonearth (103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2015
Robe orangée plutôt translucide. Une bonne écume bordant généreusement le verre, se désintégrant peu à peu. Arômes boisés et sucrés d’agrumes (j’ai même une étrange impression - sacrilège! - de Kool-Aid...) et de conifères. Au goût, une bonne amertume sucrée, rappelant l’abricot séché, l’écorce d’orange, la lime ou même la clémentine. Un léger soupçon de caramel brulé. L’amertume s’étire un tantinet en bouche.
