Fusion Hopped IPA is an intensely fresh, aromatic, hop forward IPA that is Fusion Hopped to meld hops from Down Under with premium malts resulting in an explosive start and long lasting finish!

Lagerboy (1958) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 3, 2013
Bomber. Do they even make this any more? Opaque lighter orange yellow, foamy white head mostly fades. Aroma of fruity hop and perfume. Bitter floral hop taste, tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit, odd and soapy, faint mild sweet malts. Average carbonation, light-medium body, moderately hopped. Finishes dry and bitter. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

kylegooderham (1) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 30, 2012 does not count
Extremely pale blonde even green hue. Iím not sure what the "fusion" aspect is, but it is not for me. Flavour is all over the map. Unfortunately, not very enjoyable.

fiulijn (19347) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2012
Bottle from Liberty Wine on W 10th, Vancouver
Blond color, paler than your typical IPA. The aroma is strange, a bit fruity but also soapy. Lean body and lean flavor, that exalts the bold bitterness, resiny hops, although not very fruity (but the bottle may be a bit old). Thirst quencher.

turboespresso (256) - Port Moody, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 8, 2012
Bottle. Different right from the start, the hop aroma is citric, but not in familiar way. This beer seriously looks like a pilsener. Decent palate. Thin head, but plenty of lace. It is plenty hoppy, but in a one dimensional way. Just bitterness. The malt body is thinner than most IPAs, so this one is a bit unbalanced, even among hoppy IPAs. Still enjoyable, but I like the Citra IPA much better.

Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 13, 2012
Single bottle purchased from Zyn Liqour on 02/05/2012. Colour: Mix of light yellow and gold, with white outskirt head. Nose: Tickles of peach up front and then soft caramel. Nutty malt mixes well with light pine hops. Light egg hint pops up late. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium bitter, light sour. An onslaught of bitterness. The palate regains control mid way and produces a delicate red liqourice malt, late the bitterness regains control and gains strength through finish. Decent, if not a little light in body aside from decent hop.

VertBaconStrips (2326) - Blerkablerka, NIUE - FEB 9, 2012
Poured out a light yellow gold brew that is super clear and a big bright white cap that settles sown to a cover leaving ample lacing. ITís got a bit of a different aroma but behind that initial dose there ainít much, muchacho. Sweet candy, cotton candy maybe but itís been years, cereal grains. Flavours also similar with a sharper citrus and hints of something orange popping out. Long bitterness, much better warmer than cellar temperature. Heavily carbonated. Good citrus on the finish. This beer took too long to interest me.

Crit (3840) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2012
Hazy gold,white head. Small bead.Spicy hop nose and fore.Medium bodied astringent hop profile is a bit odd. One dimensional

patricks110 (2425) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 29, 2012
I took a shot with this one because the Citra IPA was good. The pour is a light orange, yellow body with a thick, foamy white head that remains thick throughout. The nose has a prominent grainy aroma with a bit of toasty malts and a mild hop with some citrus. The taste is sweet and toasty with a bunch of fruity hops and a big bitterness on the finish. Surprising how hoppy this one actually is. Not resinous, but harshly bitter. This is an okay IPA, but completely out of whack with an unbalanced taste.

DuffMan (9593) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 14, 2012
Bottle. Clear, very pale yellow, with a chalky giant white head that shows excellent retention. Aroma is more cereal and light toast than hops. Palate entry is crunchy pale malts (Mark said "Like old-school Cheerios"), lightly toasty, with soft fruit hop notes that barely lift their little head before an astringent bitterness rolls in. The bitterness is actually harsh and intrusive, lingering long after the swallow. Not awful, but completely out of balance. I think the starting choice of ingredients was just wrong here, not complimentary at all.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 8, 2012
Bottle at home, from my Maudite glass. Pours clear pale gold, 1-finger white head, good lacing. Nose is spicy hops, some tropical fruit, something cheesy in there too, along with a certain bubblegum notes. Odd... Flavours of Spicy canteloupe and bizarre spicy hop-mess. This is really all over the place. Abort! ABORT!!!!!!!�
