3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - 355ml. Golden body with average carbonation and a thin, fading white frothy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with melon and grapefruit hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries malty, citrusy, and piney notes. Ends with a long, robust bitter finish. Enjoyable IPA.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 mL Bottle. Yellow-gold body with a foamy white head that settles to a clingy film leaving foamy ribs on the glass as it is sipped. Aroma of sweet light malts, citrus and floral notes, and resiny hops. Flavor of sweet light malts, grapefruit rind, aftertaste of pink grapefruit rind and a matching finish with sharp but refreshing resiny hops. Another grapefruity IPA that has won my heart.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hard pour out of colourful bottle -- can’t tell if this cycling image is cool or cheese -- is deep orange with a classic ipa bumpy cap. Aroma is floral, citrus, & hoppy. Definite west coast ipa profile. Tasty & yet a little one dimensional. Wish I could get a six pack of this (this came in a 6 pack BC sampler to ease us centre of the world types in) even though it doesn’t pack the hop bomb wallop some of their rivals brew.

Golden amber color. Nose is strong citrus hop. Hints of grapefruit. Taste is dominated by the bitter hops with a slight Caramel malt hint. A tasty ipa. True to the west coast style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml bottle, 6.5% a/v
Pours a reasonable gold colour, slightly darker than Canadian, a foamy white head and decent carbonation. Aroma is stone fruits, grass, citrus, and a hint of pear. The taste is quite hoppy with a fruity and citrusy flavour to it, the stone fruit smell and taste addition to this is absolutely brilliant and I need to find out what hops create that! The palate is full and smooth. Overall, this is a tremendous IPA, far more complex and balance than the average West Cost IPA which just punches you in the face with Cascade. Well done Lighthouse!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the LCBO, in the BC Craft Brewers Guild Natural Selections 6-pack. Pours a clean rich golden with a big frothy off-white head, great retention and lots of foamy lace. Quite a beautiful head. Fresh grassy hops with some grapefruit and pine notes. Nice smooth bitterness with a little dryness. The grain is tasty and does balance out the hops. So, grass and cereal in the finish. A really like this one as not a hopbomb, not a macro IPA, but very well-blended to go down nicely, stay refreshing, but still be a real IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 ml bottle from a mix of bc beers the lcbo randomly imported. This is the best of the pack. A blonde ipa with a lean malt body and ample hopping. Hells yes.
