4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2012 Quite possibly the smoothest IPA Iíve had. Whoa, nelly. Stop the ride. Not too strong, just a good flavor. Maybe a bit floral, but thatís okay. Got the bite, but itís really mellow and fits in well with the other flavors. Consider this temporary until I have another. I donít take my 5.0ís lightly. -1 for overcarbonating so much that every can explodes when opened. Itís a waste of beer. As much as I love this beer, itís a waste.

This has to be my favorite IPA. Itís the finish that sets this one apart: the hop flavor just pops as it lingers and evolves and eventually fades. Beautiful!

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.

355 mL Can. Gold - amber fizzy body with a thick and tenacious frothy head leaving foamy ribs as the beer is sipped. Grapefruit rind, lemon, clover, and intense resiny hops titillate the nose -Iím maxed out here. Sweet malts, quickly get taken over by intense resiny "grapefruit rind" hops tapering to a long bitter hop finish that seems to have a wee hint of clover. This is another example of a beer style I sometimes like better than a lot of Belgians. Gotta love those grapefruits ;)

This is an excellent, easily on of the best Iíve had in awhile. Aggressively hopped, lots of grapefruit and grass, but very well balanced. A perfect combination of bitter and sweet. Iíd love to be able to try this again. Bought in Toronto in spring, 2013.

Honestly I donít 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.

2 liter growler I took home. Amber coloured with small head, fades fast with good lace. Medium bodied with strong citrus nose & bitterness. Well balanced. Good bitterness but not WA over the top.

floral, spruce, citrusy, pale, light body, very bitter, medium sourness, lively, long finish. This is a really great IPA. The best one Iíve had in BC. It is reminiscent of Surly Furious of Minneapolis, MN.
