bottle. Poured clear medium amber-brown with a rocky off-white head. Sweet malt aroma with fresh hops. Crisp carbonated mouthfeel with a sticky dry finish. Flavour of caramel malt with a fair amount of fresh herbal hops, ends with some peppery spice.

pours a dark brown with thick white head. initial taste is VERY bitter that does even out a bit. will probably impress hop-heads, but I found the bitterness to be very unbalanced so I find it hard to consider this a top-tier IPA.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tallboy can from LCBO in Ottawa. Nearly clear copper pour with foamy head. Aroma is nice - orange mango hops and bready malt. Taste trades nuanced hop flavor in aroma for mostly straight bitterness, which is big and lasts. Crisp bitter finish, also brings back the breadiness. Crisp solid IPA with nice aroma.

Can bought at an LCBO in Toronto/Canada. Pours a brown copper color, soapy solid white head. Aroma is malty and I do jot detect any other flavors. Taste a great balance of malt and bitter hops and bitter fruits, all on a good mild level. This IPA is a not a hoppy citrus style India pale ale, but more of a tradinional one. I like it. A good beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Clear amber pour with an off-white head. Aromas of sweet tropical fruit and some light citrus. Flavour is the same, some nice citrus zest and sweet fruit with a butter edge - not hugely flavourful but nicely balanced. Tastes very fresh - caned less than a month ago. Not bad, but not outstanding.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark copper pour with bit slightly off white head. Resiny aroma. Moderate hop character with long aftertaste, some sweetness at the very front from malt, slightly lighter bodied than average IPA which gives a slight harshness. Average IPA, very pleasant.

Got a 473ml (where does that total come from for a can???) LCBO, pours a copper orange color, with a medium foam head. Aroma whiff is citrus as mentioned and pine, linger of hay or grass too. Mouthful I get smooth and dry and further smell get toffee and maple hint almost, with a bitter finish that is not overpowering. Not a bad beer to drink!

A 473ml can from LCBO,not a fan of the LOB offerings generally, but always open to try a new local product.
This one is very good, not an epic IPA. Very drinkable indeed.
Not too hoppy, quite smooth, nicely done.
