Other than the looks, this is subpar. It’s dominated by bittering hops without bring that bitter. A bit tinny. Bad finish, very metallic.

jgb9348 (5717) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 29, 2016
Nice copper and bronze glow to a thinnish, single centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of earth, toffee, pears and apples and a bit of very mellow english or low a.a. hops. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong earthy and biscuity malt flavours with some caramel and toffee and a touch of light herbal hops and a touch of grass coupled with some sweeter elements on the end, but nothing too deep or strong either way. Aftertaste is rather bland with only a touch of biscuits and earth and a little hop bitterness, but not much. Overall, not such a great beer, which is too bad, because the name and beer bottle are nice, but that’s the way it goes. Definitely not worth carting this all the way from rural Montana to Washington then up to Maine, but still, neat for me to try. However, if you are based out West, there is no real need to sample this one at all. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Vintage Cellars in Great Falls, Montana on 20-June-2016 for US$1,75 sampled in my hotel room here in Portland, Maine on 29-July-2016.

stevoj (4015) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Bottle from Albertsons. As the description says, not a big, overwhelming hoppy IPA, nicely balanced, which makes it an easy drinker. Tasty malts coupled with mild hops. Really good!

hfmejias (1273) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - APR 23, 2016
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured amber, clear, small white head and little lacing. Aroma of fruit and malts with a touch of hops. Taste is sweet and fruity, lots of malts and slightly hopped towards the end. Not bad but on the bland side. Dry finish; drinkable.

An okay IPA, hop forward and crisp. Medium bodied with a little citrus, but mostly grass and pine. Bottle from the parents from their trip to Alberta in 2015.

bnokk (472) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 25, 2015
APPEARANCE ? super clear, light golden color and white head. NOSE ? discernable earthy hop. Not overpowering, very light. FLAVOR ? not much stands out. Slightly bitter, but in a fairly plain way.
