Just attacks the nose with citrussy and floral hop aromas. Decent compact head on top of a lovely deep amber ale. And man, this tastes great. A perfect balance between bitterness and refreshment, with citrus and bitter dancing off to a wonderful tie.
A crisp, clean finish with a lingering bitterness that is not overwhelming... merely enticing you to open another.

Drank from a 600ml can. Also poured some in the glass to look what the beer looks like. Lovely clear orange beer with much carbonation of tiny bubbles from the bottom. No head, but this is not a cin, I may not have poured enough. Smell is super refreshing! I get a lot of pineapple - much more from the can than from the glass. Curiously, the beer in the glass smells really dry. I get some fruits and alcohol as well, but nothing really interresting, I will git it a 3. Taste is less complex than the nose: I get fruity bitterness from the hops and a mouthfeel of carbonation - almost sparkling and mineral. Medium body, To me, this is a good beer but more interresting in the nose than on the tongue.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2015 473ml can from LCBO. Thanks Peter. Aroma: tropical fruits, pineapples, a little bit of pines. App: clear copper with small white head with some lacing. Taste and palate: light to medium body, resinous, light to medium bitter finish. Average carbonation. Overall: for some reason didn’t expect much from this beer. I enjoyed it, could taste a little more, maybe more fruity, it’s a bit watery which is weird for an IPA. It feels like it they only focused on bitterness instead of a combination of fruits/resin and bitterness. Finish isn’t the best I’ve had from an IPA but overall a good IPA from Canada

It's almost not an IPA. It's not that bitter I think you could call this a pale ale and no one would notice. That being said I enjoyed it an will buy it again. Also I like the packaging.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can into giant bulbuls tulip. Pours a rich mahogany amber/copper. Massive and long lasting head, leaves about 2cm and ample lacing. Aroma of dank hops, sour apple, hay, pine, zesty and ripe orange. Taste of bitter hops, dry and ripe, orange peel, cucumber, tart melon. Leaves a dry and bitter aftertaste, followed by a hop punch from Canada, and solid citrus offerings. Solid brew here.

Sweet malt and citrus hops in the nose. Very punchy and fresh tasting hop medley, featuring citrus, grapefruit, pine and orange elements. Soft bready malt underneath completes the classic west coast IPA profile. Significant carbonation pumps up the taste. "Juicy and fresh" - the great descriptor of superior West Coast IPAs!

Bottle. Orange pulp and grapefruit peel aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Mildly sweet orange malt and moderately bitter orange peel flavor. Good but standard.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Meditrina. Copper with lasting head lace and yeast floaters. Fruity toasted caramel and bready aroma. Sweet toasted caramel nuts and lots of fruit with fruity medium spicy bitter long fruity finish. Medium body nice carbo. Pretty good but quite sweet and toasty. I am shocked at the ratings as I thought most people prefer a drier more hop forward IPA. Oh well, to each his own.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
16 oz. can. Pours a mostliy clear deep orange with big, fluffy white head. Nose and flavor are marked with bitter grapefruit pith, sourdough and rye grain, pine. Too much malt character. Good hops, but just not all that impressive.
