Light tobacco and mineral water aroma (!), beige head, very light flavour; apply with an orange finish. It’s not awful, it’s just not that great.

341ml bottle served in a snifter around 6 - 8 degrees: Pours quite dense dark copper with bright orange highlights. Carbonation is moderate and finely structured forming a creamy off-white head showing moderate retention. Lacing is rare and coarse. The nose is grainy, sweet and floral. Strong caramel malts pair with citrusy and floral hops to give a balanced and inviting aroma. On the tongue, the balance between the malts and hops remains. The brew also has great density which adds a lot to the tasting. The finale is somewhat vapory as this full-bodied IPA breaks down slowly on the palate. Overall I thought this was an excellent IPA. It’s balanced, flavourful and, most importantly, full-bodied. I would try this on with fish or go with the food paring advice found on their site and pair it up with spicy food. Cheers!

341 mL bottle. Fairly orange pour with a thin to medium white head that doesn’t last long. Okay IPA, caramel malt body, some citrus and with grapefruit hops in the finish.

brokensail (11613) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 30, 2014
On tap @ Granville Island Brewing. Clear orange pour with a white head. Really grassy and piney. Some bread, mild citrus, and earthy hops. A strong nuttiness to the flavor. Sweet bread and mild citrus. Tons of pine and grass. Decent amount of bitterness. Kind of zesty on the finish.

VT (1701) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 28, 2014
341 ml bottle. Pours a subtly veiled golden pale amber with a short lived white head. Flavor is caramel, grains, resin, corn. Finish is herbal hop, some grapefruits...definitely lacking in bitterness, here...medium body, somewhat sticky mouthfeel, average carbonation.

RichardW (1551) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2014
Bottled from the brewery shop. Quite a fragrant aroma, with elderflower and honey notes. Strongly flavoured with a whisky tang in there, vying with some great dry woody notes and background caramel. More whisky in the finish and some medicinal flavour too.

341 mL bottle. Pours a dark orange with a small head and nice lacing. Hoppy grapefruit aroma. Not bitter in the tongue. Really pleasant and well balanced. Long finish. Nicely crafted. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HopsandBolts (114) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2014
On tap at Hooleys. This one pours a deep copper colour with just a bit of white head. Lots of malt and caramel flavours. Not a bad IPA overall.

MunBro (542) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 22, 2014
I’m also surprised the ratings aren’t higher for this one. Decent IPA if not terribly original. Has a pretty one note hoppy flavor with the signature Granville Island aftertaste.

I thought its ratings would be higher than this, but at the same time I am not surprised. I doesn’t really do anything wrong, but it plays it real safe. A very good starter IPA to ween people off of lesser brews. It is a good IPA, and I would buy it again, but I won’t go nuts.
