JoeZasada (296) - Beaumont, Alberta, - JUN 17, 2011
Bomber bottle. Pours a clear reddish pale amber, with a thin white head, slight breenish tinge. Mild aroma of spruce, but not much head to push it. Tastes is a heavy bitterness with some citrus tones, with a medium slightly sweet malt body underneath. Full body, creamy texture, would be helped with livelier carbonation. Finishes with a grassy bitterness. Pretty good...

Draft. Little aroma. Flavors of sweet orange before fading to a bitter punch in the face. Solid but not terribly distinctive.

Golden color with decent white head. Aroma is interesting, spicy, floral with some citrus. Taste is interesting as well, spice mixed with citrus with pine on the back end. The use of Ahtanum hops makes this Ipa stand out.

mattyhennessy (353) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - DEC 22, 2014
Pours a golden orange with a foamy white head. Orange an citrus on the nose with malt sweetness and some piney flavours. Initial sweet orange on the tongue, punch of hop bitterness balanced well with caramel malt sweetness. A little sweeter than I prefer in an IPA, but well balanced. Refreshing

Growler filled at Special Brews. Pours a clear golden. Nice hops aroma. Lighter body and light flavor with a lot of hops. Has a bit of a sweet finish. Almost mango like. Juicy IPA with a good amount of hops. Tasty.
