plaugher (288) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 6, 2015
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 (9164) - 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.

Lubiere (11589) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2014
A hazed amber ipa with a thin off white head. In aroma, nice fruity caramel malt with grassy floral hops, butterscotch notes, very nice. In mouth, a nice fruity caramel malt with British floral hops, grapefruit pulp, nice butterscotch, well done. Cask Days 2014.

Sample at Atlantic Beer Festival Moncton. Clear golden amber color, medium white head. Aroma of caramel and light pine. Taste has pine, caramel, light citrus. OK.

jasonschultz (7) - - AUG 28, 2014 does not count
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2014 Not my fave IPA but not the worst either. Could hop it a notch or two. The devils elbow is surely hoppier than this.

Floral aroma, fresh taste. Moderate bitterness. Red in color. Lingering in finish. Moderate alcohol flavors, moderate-heavy mouth feel. Sweet and somewhat malty.
