jksipa (331) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2014
Bottle from the Beer Store. Pours a very clear medium amber with a big fluffy tan head that quickly recedes. Nose is grass and grain with a little floral hops. Sweet start with mild citrus bitterness. Light to medium mouth with average carbonation. Nothing to make this stand out.

(5%)one finger head with little bubbles and the head last and leaves lacing. Swerling the beer a little bring a bigger head tha stays for a moment then mostly gone. Dark orange amber look with carbination. Smell from the bottle almost smelt a tad like a smell from a macro lager. Glass really brings the hoppyness out. some water medium-heavy bodied with a friendly way of showing the I guess bitterness & I guess some fruity/grassy taste a bit but the hops r like mostly grainny or bitter in a friendly way not a punch to the face but strongly tasted. If you find this too hoppy then lots of hoppy beers r not for you if you like hops a lot this may be weak for ya. I find it fine for what it is but not taste I am hopeing to get in most beer’s I pick up. Nothing wrong with it cheer’s.

not even sure where the "west coast IPA" pigeon hole sits. If i had to i’d call it an american pale. Not excessively carbontaed which was a bonus, light fruitiness on the nose gentle hops and citrus flavour. Good to try as i’d heard it was one to sample but i moved on to other options after the first one.

Pours hazy golden with thick head. Aroma of straw and grass with earthiness. Taste has malt and a very mild sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Eructoblaster (2999) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2012
Bottle - 341ml. Golden body with a fading white foamy head. Thin malty/hoppy aroma with melon hints. Its bland, thin hoppy taste carries malty and fruity notes. Ends with a short bittersweet finish. Boring.

BreWedge (313) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2012
On tap @ Hintonburg Public House. Pours a clear peach tinted gold with a small white head. Aroma is sour cherry or berry. Taste is fruit (citrus), grain, with a dry bitterness. Mouthfeel is biting with an astringent finish. Average beer.

Bendrixian (1101) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2012
Pint at Burger Bar, Toronto. Foamy head with a clear and yellow colour. Overfiltered and reduced aroma but has some floral hoppy note. Medium bodied brew light malts. Not much for complexity and is a rather boring IPA.

Metalchopz (2264) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2012
6-pack at the LCBO. Pours a clean light amber colour with an off-white frothy head that has great retention and bubbly lacing. Nice mild floral hop nose with a little roasted malts. After breathing a bit, some caramel notes appear. The grapefruit hoppiness is present in the taste as well, and still on the mild side. Some grain shows up in the aftertaste well-blended with the smooth bitterness. A pretty refreshing Pale Ale that has a bit of a hoppy bite. Very easy-going and would have again.

On tap. Orange pour, foamy off white head. Aroma is yeasty, a bit peppery, booze, citrus and pine. Sticky mouthfeel. A lot of bready, caramel malt. Finishes long and citrus bitter with a bit of minerality. Balance wasnt quite there, but I like the malty character and not shy with the hops. Still not quite west coast. Pretty drinkable.
