4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is all hop goodness.Citrus and pine are very assertive.
Pale amber, really nice head when poured properly.
A bit more balanced towards bitterness than malt.
Medium bodied with lively carbonation.
This is one of the best IPA made in Canada.
Definitely West Coast style.
I love it!

2012 vintage courtesy of my dear friend Garthicus. I am deeply sorry it took me so long to visit and taste this little beauty. Cloudy orange/amber pour with a frothy white head, lots of lace. Grapefruit, orange peel, little spice, toffee, pine. Slightly dry with good carbonation.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml. can purchased in Ladysmith. Great aroma- citrus hops, leaves, pine, and very fruity. Generous head- very frothy. Honey brown- dark yellow. Taste: hops, pine, citrus, fruits- kind of dry. The only weakness to this IPA is that the aftertaste fades pretty quickly (compared to some craft brewed IPA’s). Orange peel is evident- citrusy and leaf notes on the palate. Very fruity and dry- little carbonation. This is a very good choice. I absolutely love the fact that this comes in a 6 pack for a relatively good price; cheers!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a hazy golden copper with amber hi lights and a wheat coloured head that disperses fairly quickly. Moderately carbonated, the aroma is earthy and malty with sweetly spiced hops and a hint of citrus and honey (?) or beeswax (?). The taste is spicy and piney with a nice balance between the malts and the hops. It has a silky mouthfeel with a nice clean crisp lingering finish. I like this one a lot!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
355 mL can. Pours orange copper with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Nose is big American hop, tangerine, grapefruit, pine, beeswax and a touch of caramel malt sweetness. Moderately sweet with a medium mouth feel and moderate carbonation, the finish is long and bitter, but well balanced, more hop aroma than astringency. Sticky on the palate. A lovely well balanced IPA.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is an excellent, easily on of the best I’ve had in awhile. Aggressively hopped, lots of grapefruit and grass, but very well balanced. A perfect combination of bitter and sweet. I’d love to be able to try this again. Bought in Toronto in spring, 2013.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2013 Pours with a thin finger cap that flattens quicker than a Vancouver suburb in an earthquake. Great can. Great beer. Wish I could try more of their stuff but I’m a few provinces separated. I could dump a dozen of these on ice & drink ’em all night. I believe some of you call that sessionable.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
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 -I’m 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 ;)
