Can, from LCBO
Light amber color. Some aroma of malt, caramel and hop. The malt flavor is partially good, with decent hopping, simple but strong enough and with a lemony trace.

Draught. Amber and bright, with a loose head. Indistinct but slightly fruity hops. The hops are again indistinct on the palate, being drowned out by the weed in the Kensington Market air, rather than complementing it. The malts have a light caramel taste and some slightly mushroomy character.

The hops are here, but not greatly drinkable. What hops used? Orange citrus, just does;t hit the spot. Some hop aroma. Fast dissipating white head on light orange body. Tingling mouthfeel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint at Dominion in Queen. Clear golden pour topped by a huge rocky white head. The nose lightly fruity with a bit of grapefruit and some light citrus. Do
Some lightly fruity esters and a little bit of lean pale malt. Clean with a nice crackery character to the malts. Itís pretty light for an IPA though - more of a pale ale, but not a bad one at all. Light bodied with a moderate bitterness. Hops are citrus and some red current sort of fruit flavour.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2012 2012-04-14. Crisp amber body, small white head and lace. 3+ Flavour is pleasant, mild hoppy character is mildly leafy and green, very light bitterness, muddled resin in finish with something else... odd malt character? 6+ Modest hoppy aroma, leafy green hops and light fruit, mild malt, muted caramel. 6+ Smooth average palate. IPA? Just something about the way it all comes together that I do not care for. 6/3/6/3/12 On tap at Brydens, Toronto
2011-10-30. Crisp dark golden orange body, small white head. 3+ Green tea like hops have a lightly herbaceous character to them. 5+ Mild bitterness, similar tea like hops. Average bodied palate. Not to my tastes. 5/3/5/3/11 Cask Days 2011, Toronto

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can from Liquor Depot, Banff. It pours golden yellow, with a thick white head. The nose is dough, grainy, light toast, tinned pineapple and weak citrus. The taste is citrus pith, lots of lemon, light tangerine, salt, toasted malt, slight astringency and metal, with a bitter finish. Thin-medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. A bit weak and boring.

So I bought this can in Kingston and then lugged it all the way to the maritimes to drink while visiting my parents in this virtual wasteland of beer that is northern New Brunswick, only to find that I can buy it at Trackside in Medicine Hat as of last week. <sigh>. Slightly hazy golden with a persistent white head. Aroma is nicely hoppy, good citrus with some grassy green elements. Flavours of straw-like malts, rather thin in the body with citric bitterness in the finish. A lighter IPA, maybe really an APA, but not bad.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2012 Rerate: Draught at Burger Bar. This is definitely a different beer then the one I had at Cask Days. Hoppier and more pleasant, Iíll gladly have this again.
Cask at Cask Days 2011. Beer #16 of festival. Pours a slightly hazy copper-gold with a small diminishing bubbly white head. Aroma of caramel malt and light hops but to paraphrase garthicus, "I think the robbers stole the hops". Malty flavour, not much hoppiness at all. Mild bitter finish. Average bodied. Mediocre, not exciting at all.
