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.

Sampled this at 5th annual East Kootenay beer festival 2016. A nice Hoppy IPA enjoyed. Good balance of malt.

Pours a foggy copper with a foamy large white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is a bit sweet/hops. Taste is caramel malts with a sharp fruit finish not that bitter. Not that exciting for an ipa but overall ok.

1 liter bottle poured at Browners house. Pours copper with a big white head that died out quickly. Not a lot of smell other than a touch of hops. Taste is pretty simple; hops are pretty much all I get. Good but nothing makes it stand out.

1l into English pint. Pours an orange/copper with pillowy white head and loads of lacing. Insense nose of fruity, resinous hop with a bit of caramel. Sharp fruitiness, with a lasting dry, bitter finish. Pleasant but pricey.

Bottle into IPA glass. Pours a clear copper colour with a tan head. Aroma is earthy and floral hops. Taste is about the same. Pretty good beer.

rosenbergh (10382) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2015
1,000 ml bottle. Bottled 06/01/15. From my favorite Canadian, Mrs. K! Thanks a zillion! Cloudy amber color with a small white head. Fruity and resiny hops, mild bitterness and sweet caramel malt in the aroma. The flavor is bitterness, dryness, piney hops and dryish maltiness. Not bad! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Unspectacular. Very mild flavor, sight chemical aftertaste. Very chunky, sludgy foam. Not objectionable, but not great either.

This is a really nice, balanced IPA. Pours a hazy amber with a foamy off-white head. Lots of sweet caramel malt aromas, along with some floral, citrusy hops aromas. Has a medium body with a medium-high level of carbonation, making it a nice refreshing brew. Has a nice malty sweetness that plays nicely with the pleasing amount of hop bitterness. Also as a homebrewer, I love the 1L swingtop it comes in.
