Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a nice big dirty white colour that sticks around and laces all the way up the glass. Aromas of sweet pale malts, toasty/bready(british) malt is present, and citrus. In the flavour the malts take a bit more of a back seat than in the aroma. Flavour is grapefruit, medium bitterness thats well blended, and some sweet malts. Very session-able beer.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2013 Pours a slightly hazy golden amber color With a frothy white head and lots of lace. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus and sweet malts. Taste is much of the same with a perfect balance between the hops & malts. The balance is so well that it may not seem so bitter but it is a very sessionable IPA.

Pours a cloudy amber tone. Has a sweet, citrus aroma, similar to its flavour followed by the sharp bitterness characteristic of IPAs. I just donít like IPAs.

blankboy (6412) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2012
Draught at Grain, Hyatt Regency, Vancouver, Oct. 5. Pours a slightly hazy orange-copper with an average size diminishing off-white head with some lacing on the glass. Aroma of grain and hops, slightly resiny and fruity. Flavour of resiny hops, fruit and caramel malt along with a decent bitter finish. Medium bodied. Not an amazing IPA or anything but a pretty good one.

A IPA, which is more about its malt profile than its hop profile. Not horrible, but the aroma seems to be where the majority of the hops in this beer went. Caramel and plum flavours as well as a surrounding mediocre citrus grapefruit bitterness. Would have loved to see more hops in this one, but drinkable none the less.

Ferris (6744) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 5, 2012
Bottle - Malty with grapefruit/aromatic hops on the nose. Thick white head and a clear amber hue. Very mild with some hop bitterness, caramel/malt character is nicely balanced against hops. A very nondescript and sessionable IPA, but nothing too unique.

On tap at Earlís in Yaletown, in Earlís rhino branded sleeve. Not much head, due to pouring technique. What the hell, Iím here for beer, not foam! A darker amber color on this baby. A degree or two too cold for this sipper, but itíll surely warm up. A nice balance of malt and hops here. A winner!

Pours amber colour with medium foamy white head. aroma is light floral hops and a hint of citrus. a nice mix of malts and hops but missing a bit of the hop spice. has full body and medium carbonation and a medium bitterness in the finish

Single bottle received as a Christmas 2011 present :) Colour: Cloudy dark orange with minimal head. The caramel is evident and its intertwined with bubble gum and light pink grapefruit. More swirling brings out watermelon too. Gentle and nice. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium bitter, light sour. The soft fruits do the prologue then the sharp bitter hops swoop in for the long haul. Although still biting on the finish, body falls a bit flat. Very drinkable as a whole.
