1 litre swing top bottle poured a hazy golden amber with a lasting ivory head. Aromas of biscuit, orange zest, earthiness and grapefruit. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, earthiness, light orange zest and a hint of grapefruit with a crisp dry lingering bitter finish.

Rating #783 - Nov 26, 2013 - 1L swingtop from Coop in #yeg. Pours a hazy copper with a fairly frothy head. sticky lacing. Aroma is sweet, tangerine, meyer lemon, and mild sappy, resinous pine note.Taste is mild sweetness (citrusy, piney, floral) and a lingering bitterness - cookie dough, caramel malt character really brought out, and the sticky pine-tar, sappyness of the hops. A beautiful balanced beer that isn’t shy about its IBU.

A nice ipa. Pours a hazy burnt orange with nice lacing. Aromas of honey and dank resin. Similar flavours with some hop bitterness... but not a tonne.

Dominant pine taste with flashes of grapefruit and little malt sweetness. Very basic, kind of boring, but it does have a noticeable bite to it.

A mellow IPA. The bitterness, more than anything makes it an IPA. Very much like a Pale Ale but with a bitter finish. True IPA lovers will be a little let down. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reddish orange body with lots of foamy white head and nice lacing. A bit of a fruity aroma, some hops, quite nice. Taste is less impressive, but decent. A sweet breadiness with kind of an asprin aftertaste. Palate is a bit soft for my liking. Overall okay.

On tap at Vancouver. Pours orange with white head. Aroma is of citrusy hops, biscuit malt and orange marmalade. Body is medium, creamy and crisp. Taste is of citrusy, peppery hops, biscuit malt, orange marmalade and ripe fruit. Finish is long and greapfruity. Very nice IPA.

Big ole bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a frothy off white head. Fruity hoppy aroma and tastes the same. Dry finish. Good but not memorable.
