simardsam (117) - Montreal, Quebec, - OCT 26, 2013
Dorée/orangée avec une mousse blanche. Un nez citronné et de sapinage. Au goût d’agrumes, résineux et un petit quelque chose qui rappelle l’abricot. Avec une douce amertume qui s’étale au long de la gorgée et une finale légèrement sèche.

On draught at State and Main in Edmonton. Pretty decent Canadian generic IPA.

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.

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.

Bottle. Small head. Lime and grapefruit in the aroma. Rather forgettable...

20 oz pint, local pub, Calgary. I really like this IPA. It’s not the biggest, hoppiest, most alcoholic IPA on the block by a long shot but it’s very drinkable. Aroma is definitely hops- lots of hops- but with a more floral note than most West Coast IPAs. Pale, clear beer with a minimal white head. Appearance not unlike a pint of Marston’s Pedigree. It tastes of hops, but not as bitter as a double IPA. There’s bitterness there but not an overwhelming amount. Light bodied, average texture, lively carbonation and a decent hoppy finish. Overall this is a beer I’m likely to order frequently and would happily drink all evening- unlike most 10% Imperial Double IPAs. It would be a good starter IPA for someone looking to explore the style, or else one to look out for in a local pub as it’s more interesting than standard choices in my area.

GarnotingPete (771) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2014
Bière couleur de miel, légèrement voilée et où flotte une fine écume laissant au verre une légère dentelle. Au nez, un peu de malt caramel, une houblonnage vaguement herbacé. Elle est moyennement amère, peu de sucre ou d’acide. Elle offre un corps moyen, une texture huileuse, moyennement effervescente et se termine honnêtement sur des arômes quelconques.

Good beer as a standby. Not over hopped or over powering, easy to drink and enjoy with food and friends. Refreshing ipa -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10
