reebtogi (4097) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 31, 2011
1 litre swing-top bottle poured a slightly hazy golden-orange color with an abundant off-white head and loads of lace. Aromas of citrus and floral hops and some grainy malt. Taste is very well balanced between the malts and hops with both sweetness and the bitter. A fine medium body and plenty of carbonation make this an overall enjoyable drinking experience.

Aubrey (3430) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - AUG 3, 2011
Decent IPA, though it’s pretty malt-forward, similar to many Canadian IPAs that seem to have that English-style slant. Malt flavors are rich with bread dough, bitter cocoa powder and toast. Hops mostly offer flavors of citrus rind and grass. Hop aromas are a bit restrained, with just a slight floral hint. A moderate bitterness is balanced with a mild sweetness. Slightly sticky finish.

Bendrixian (1069) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 15, 2011
1L bottle. High carbonation with an almost lemon cream coloured head and has cloudy orange colour. aromas are fruit forward, hoppy citrus note and only slight malted notes. The palate is medium to fuller bodied tastes dry hopped bitterness mixed with fruity hoppy notes. Lacks any real complexity and has a slight metallic feel to the finish but a pretty good everyday , high carbonation IPA.

Sask89 (410) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - FEB 22, 2011
Pours a slightly dark amber colour with a medium off-white head, mostly clear. Aroma is of spruce and citrus hops, noticeable grapefruit and light maltiness. Taste is bitter throughout, but not particularly strong, also present is some sweetness. Light-medium body, soft carbonation and on the palate, long finish. Overall a good IPA.
