Bottle shared with the Vuong siblings. Pours a bright, hazy with no head, but some white lacing. Aroma is sweet malts and light citrus. Mouthfeel is smooth with notes of caramel malts and light fruit. Ehhh.

On tap at Hoyne, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out piney hops, biscuity malt, and maybe a touch of diacetyl. Flavour is cleaner, with dry piney hopping and a bone dry biscuity malt backbone. Leaves quite the astringency on the finish but in a tasteful way. Not the most flavourful, just very bitter and dry. Decent IPA.

Not a bad IPA but lacking a bit. Will say that this has a nice mango hop presence and typical hop flavoring. Not bad.

Draught @ Creekbread, Whistler Creekside BC. Clear amber, little fine white head. Very green, grassy, resinous hoppy ipa with only 6%ABV. F#cking lovely!

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 11, 2014
Golden, mushroomy aroma, fuggley? (not getting any modern hops here). Soft. Earthy moderate bitterness. Mid-90s IPA. Balanced, light biscuity and a touch caramelly.

Amber in the glass with haze. Citrus on the nose. Nice bitter finish with a touch of chocolate and coffee. Nice head and lacing. Good balance of malt, yeast and alcohol. Well made.

Pours dark amber with a frothy head. Aroma of mango, citrus, pine. Taste is mango sweet, then tart then malty sickish. The finish does not appeal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 28, 2014
Pours a pretty hazy amber with some noticeable hop sediment in suspension, an average sized white head and a decent amount of lace up the glass. Aroma is sweet citrus, tropical fruit, floral and a mild malty backbone. Flavour is grapefruit mixed with sweet citrus, medium-high bitterness, floral, mild fruity esters, some grainy backbone to give a bit of balance and finishes dry.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 28, 2014
Pours an almost clear copper with an orange hue and a small white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, passionfruit, tropical fruits, sweet mango and a bit of sweet caramel pale malts. Taste is caramel, bitter grapefruit hops up front with some mango and passionfruit in the background. Bitterness lasts into the finish and is a bit harsh and astringent. Overall a nice easy drinking ipa.

krumbum (991) - truckee, California, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Slightly hazy golden amber. Light smells of sappy hops. Mild bitter taste with the hops up front. Slow mellow but still leaves a bit of a hop stain.

Tap, brewery. Pours a clear gold body with a moderate frothy white head. The nose has some nice citrusy hops, but there’s a bit too much sweetness under them for my tastes. The flavor is a little too sweet for me as well, really heavy caramel maltiness dulls the hops too much. It really tastes like there’s crystal malt in here, but no mention of it in the commercial description. Medium bodied with a sticky clinginess and soft fizzy carbonation. No real flaws here I suppose, but it just doesn’t play to my tastes.
